Episode 47: Must Read Books for Pre-chiropractic Students
The most successful people in the world have one thing in common: they read. And they read a lot. Warren Buffett, the richest man in the world, continues to read up to 500 pages per day. Bill Gates has reportedly read a book a week since high school. Elon Musk devoured books of all genres when he was a kid, and has credited physics and engineering textbooks with getting him up to speed on rocket science - literally. Dr. Scott Haldeman, DC, PhD, MD, a reknowned spine specialist, thinks you should be reading at least 5 hours per week to keep up with the latest spine research. "I don't think you're capable of offering care to patients if you're not reading 2-5 hours per week. If you're not reading the research 2-5 hours each week, you're going to very rapidly become outdated.” – Scott Haldeman, DC, PhD, MD “Read 500 pages every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.” – Warren Buffett It’s no question that reading is a skill and a habit that must be developed and honed. And there’s no better time to start than before you go to chiropractic school. Here is my list of must-read books for pre-chiropractic students. I’ve either read the book, or had it recommended by guests on my podcast. Of course, if you’re already in school, it’s not too late to start. Each recommendation includes links to the book on Amazon, Kindle, and where available, the audiobook on Audible or the summary on Blinkist. 1. 80,000 Hours: Find a fulfilling career that does good. -Benjamin Todd 2.
