Binge worthy 🙌🏽
I’ve binge-listened the first 18 Chapters of this podcast over the last couple weeks and I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be hooked till 2031 (when the podcast is scheduled to end)! Its refreshing to listen to Neil interview a vast array of people, ask interesting and informative questions, and to do it in his own unique way. Oh, and of course the fact that this is all centered around books! Thanks Neil for creating such an informative, thought provoking, and self reflective podcast. I’ve implemented a lot of ideas which you have talked about with your guests, like putting my phone in black and white and carrying a book with me wherever I go to read more this year, and the years to come. And now .. for those of you who have made it to the end of my book review, welcome to the end of the review club, ha! What are you doing? Stop reading the reviews and just go listen already!
GREAT interview skills!!
I just listened to the interview with Seth Godin and was AMAZED!!! That was one of the best interviews I’ve listened to in a long time!! The conversation was fun, interesting and VERY informative!! Keep up the great work!!! - J.J.
Book Lover Conversations?!
It isn't always easy finding people who are passionate about the same things as you. Great book podcasts aren't always easy to find, but 3 Books is solid! It's an informative podcast ranging in topics from BookTubing to children's literature. Neil's humility and willingness to ask "stupid" questions keeps the show simple and understandable, rather than snooty and elitist. One would think guests would simply be authors, but so far his guests have come from all walks of life. Learning the 3 most formative books of a person may give us a glance into their soul, this podcast attempts to distill that into audio format!
