Non-Tim Ferriss-Podcast-Related Book (A Personal Selection)
Reason Book was Chosen: The author of this book - Ryan Gravel - is the reason behind the Beltline in Atlanta, GA. When I lived in Atlanta, I ran on the Beltline 2-3 times a week. Ryan's thesis paper at Georgia Tech consisted of an idea of connecting abandoned railroad lines to create a perimeter around the city of Atlanta consisting of light rail, walking/riding/biking trails, and easy connection into the city. His thesis paper became a reality and now, for the first time in Atlanta's history, neighborhoods that were never connected due to race relations are now connected by this project. The Beltline has completely transformed Atlanta. It came about from this man's vision. I want to read his book.
