Celebrity Picks: Shaun T's Favorite Reads of 2017

Adrian Liang on January 01, 2018

ShaunT-225.jpgDo you start your day with a very fit man yelling, “LET'S GO!” at you? If the answer is yes, you’re likely one of Shaun T’s enthusiastic workout partners in his Insanity, Cize, or Shaun T Week exercise programs.

This year Shaun T dug deep and wrote a self-help memoir: Shaun’s advice on how to be happy and healthy along with stories of a childhood of abuse, the “freshman 50” he gained in college, the first fitness class he ever taught, and his move to Los Angeles, where he made a splash that has turned into a tidal wave of positivity. Shaun T’s voice shines on every page. Reading his book is like having him sitting next to you on the couch and confides in you about his life and his hard-won wisdom.

See the books that resonated with Shaun T this year, and look here for more authors' favorites.

The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael A. Singer - I absolutely loved this book because as a kid I felt weird about how I processed things in my head and I always wondered why I consistently had the other voice lingering. Now I not only know what it is but I know how to use it to give me power. This book is a must read if you struggle with decision making or constant self-doubt.

Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell and Patrick Robinson - I read this book during the filming of my Asylum Volume 1 filming and it really gave me the power to never give up. When I was younger I wanted to go into the military, and this book made me push harder than I think I could have during that shoot. This book made me for sure dig deeper in my workout and in my life.

Adnan's Story: The Search for Truth and Justice After Serial by Rabia Chaudry - I, like everyone else in podcasting, got hooked on Serial, but it wasn't until I met Rabia Chaudry and eventually read Adnan's Story that I realized the magnitude of how deeply this story touched a family and a community. It's amazing how something that is just a segment on the news can go as deep as this. The details that are left out in a news story or even a podcast can completely dehumanize someone, and this gives you a life lesson in what it means to NEVER GIVE UP.
