Whether you love it or hate it, for most of us, the daily commute is an inescapable part of life.
You might have a long commute in the car or a few short stops on public transport. Whatever your journey to work and back looks like, why not use that time to enjoy some of the fantastic literature that’s out there?
Below are four audiobooks from incredible authors that you can enjoy on your way to and from work.
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter
If you’re passionate about personal finance, choose Rich Dad Poor Dad for your commute.
This audiobook will give you invaluable lessons on financial literacy, investing, and why it’s better to have your money working for you than you working for your money.
In the book, Robert T. Kiyosaki details two important relationships in his life: his Rich Dad (his friend’s father) and his Poor Dad (his actual father).
Both of his Dads have shaped his thinking, and listening to Kiyosaki’s lessons could change your financial life forever.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Handmaid’s Tale was published in 1985, but it’s made a splash in the past couple of years since the television series based on the book came out in 2017.
This science fiction drama follows the story of June, who lives in a dystopian future where the totalitarian Republic of Gilead has overthrown the United States government. In this nightmarish but startlingly familiar tale, women belong to the state.
If you want to use your commute to immerse yourself in a situation far, far away from the busy streets and canceled trains of your commute, we highly recommend listening to The Handmaid’s Tale. This audiobook has short chapters, so it’s a great choice if you have a short commute.
If you like this audiobook, you can listen to its 2019 sequel, The Testaments.
That Little Voice in Your Head: Adjust the Code That Runs Your Brain by Mo Gawdat
That Little Voice in Your Head is a new release from Mo Gawdat. Gawdat is the author of the fantastic international best-selling self-help book, Solve For Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy.
He once worked as Chief Business Officer at Google X, but after the tragic and untimely passing of his son, Gawdat has spent time writing books to spread his son’s inspiring legacy.
Much like Solve For Happy, this book is a practical guide to happiness and how you can achieve it by changing your thoughts.
Do you have a stressful commute? That Little Voice in Your Head: is perfect for cheering you up and helping you reframe your thoughts before you start your working day.
