the books and audio programs i loved the most in 2020

As this eventful year comes to an end, as part of my yearly ritual, I wanted to again look back at all the useful books and audio programs that helped me in my journey of personal development and philosophy this year. Among them, there are certain books and resources that have become an integral part of my life that I refer to on a daily basis, for instance The Daily Stoic that I’ve been reading for several years now. Others are books and audio programs that either I consume from time to time or some new ones that I discovered this year.

I hope the resources mentioned below add great value to you and your life as well as you continue the never ending journey of personal growth.
