Books Written by Guests of The Truth Barrel Podcast

Brian FishbachBooks, Podcast

In each episode of The Truth Barrel podcast, there was at least one book recommendation from either Gabby, Neil, and their guests—several of which are authors themselves.

…and some of the guests’ books became bestsellers.

Your mission:  pick two of these books and promise yourself that you will read them in the first six months of 2018.

Read two of these books and you are guaranteed to learn more about improving your diet, lowering your stress, becoming a better sex partner, and strengthening your mind and body.

And when you’re done reading, go back and re-listen to the author’s episode recorded from inside the 220-degree barrel sauna with Gabby and Neil.

Although links are provided,  you can get a copy these books for free at your local library. You can go an extra step further and download the app OverDrive to read digital versions of these books once you’re a member of your local library.

So for your benefit, below is a list of books written by various guests of The Truth Barrel Podcast that you can add to your reading list in 2018:
