Ryan Serhant, the real estate mogul and co-star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York, has distilled years of his selling-prowess into a practical guide for anyone wanting to shill like a boss. Whether it’s houses or lemonade, Sell It Like Serhant will give you the confidence and acumen you need to succeed. Judging by Serhant's favorite reads from the past year, one of those tips is staying educated: learning what makes your mentors tick, how to survive a robot uprising, and how to negotiate—not real estate deals; he’s got that down—but an increasingly harried home life life with a new baby.

End Times by Bryan Walsh
I travel a lot for work, and End Times is a fascinating book that will make any flight go faster. Walsh lays out all of the insane ways human kind can end. Volcanoes, asteroids, hostile AI, disease, and perhaps the most terrifying of all—the robot uprising. Walsh balances out terror by detailing how likely these situations really are, as well as the best strategies for saving ourselves.

I am a new father of a daughter and I want her to grow up with the best possible example of how a family works so she can reach all of her goals.
