Mark Cuban picks The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. “This book was incredibly motivating to me. It encouraged me to think as an individual, take risks to reach my goals, and responsibility for my successes and failures. I loved it.”

Pay attention to this one if you’re living in Manhattan. Kevin Rose recommends Greecologies, “a place here in New York … They make yogurt fresh in Manhattan … As part of the byproduct they make grass fed fermented butter. I use it with eggs in the morning or whatever else. Fermented foods make certain nutrients more bio-available. I try to eat something fermented every day.”

Nick Frost, editor at Mattermark and founder of Startupli.st picks Breaking Smart. “I’d say my top pick is Breaking Smart, a content series (imagine a TV series, but writing instead) about the technology industry. I think it’s great content, it’s insightful, compelling, and worth reading.”

Chris Marquardt, photography expert from Tips from the Top Floor, picks the Xiaomi Mi Band. “I have two wrists, one has the Apple watch, one has this one. It’s the cheapest fitness band on the market at $15-$20. It does the usual step tracking but it’s also waterproof, does sleep tracking and does sleep cycle alarm. So it looks at what your depth of sleep is and when you’re not in a deep sleep it will wake you up within a 30-minute window of when you set your alarm, silently by vibrating. On one charge it runs 3-4 weeks.”

Tim Ferriss recommends playing Tetris 10 minutes before going to bed. “[It] can be incredibly therapeutic. Forgot how much I love playing tetris, very well adapted for multi touch.”
