In Streams of Income, online business coach Ryan Reger unpacks the three main online business models and helps readers determine which one is the best fit for them. He also provides the resources readers need to take action and even goes into discovering the “why” for starting an online business. Whether the goal is to spend more time with family, be able to give more to important causes, or saving for kids’ college or retirement, Ryan gives readers the tools they need to reach their goals and live the multiple income streams dream.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Buzz Aldrin: The Life and Legacy of the Second Astronaut to Walk on the Moon

A book on American hero, Buzz Aldrin.

At 9:32 a.m. on July 16, 1969, time stood still throughout the world, as thousands converged on the Kennedy Space Center and millions tuned in on live television. At that instant, the first rumbles began to shake the ground, as a small spacecraft attached to the giant Saturn V rocket several hundred feet tall started lifting off. Quickly being propelled several thousand miles per hour, it takes just a few minutes to reach a speed of 15,000 miles per hour, and just a few more minutes to enter orbit at 18,000 miles per hour. Apollo 11 was on its way to a historic first landing on the Moon.

Apollo 11’s trip to the Moon may have started on that day in 1969, but the journey had begun over a decade earlier as part of the Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union. While landing on the Moon was a noble goal proposed as early as 1961 by President Kennedy, NASA and the nation as a whole moved with urgency simply to best the Soviet Union, which had spent the 1950s beating America to important space-related firsts, including launching the first satellite and cosmonaut in orbit. In fact, President Eisenhower’s administration began the design for the Apollo program in 1960 in hopes of getting a head start to the Moon, despite the fact the plans originated a year before the first Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, orbited the Earth and two years before John Glenn did.

Kindle Pick of the Week: RANGE: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

On sale this week:

A great read to start your summer!

David Epstein—science writer and author of the New York Times bestseller The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of Extraordinary Athletic Performance—is a stunning, lucid, and provocative writer. In his new book “RANGE: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World” (Riverhead Books; On Sale May 28, 2019) he turns decades of self-help advice on its head. Self-styled performance gurus (and our parents!) have all told us to specialize early, stay the course, climb the ladder. But Epstein marshals a mountain of scientific research to argue that the most impactful inventors, athletes, artists, musicians and more are the ones who cross domains, rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area. With cutting-edge research distilled into captivating prose, RANGE will change how you think about your career, your education, your hobbies, and the way you parent.
 
Plenty of experts argue that anyone who wants to develop a skill, play an instrument, or lead their field should start early, focus intensely, and rack up as many hours of deliberate practice as possible. If you dabble or delay, you'll never catch up to the people who got a head start. But a closer look at research on the world's top performers, from professional athletes to Nobel laureates, shows that early specialization is the exception, not the rule.
 
Epstein shows that in most fields—especially those that are complex and unpredictable, and difficult to automate—generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Generalists often find their path late, abandon projects (or even entire careers) readily, and juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. They're also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can't see.
 
Provocative, rigorous, and engrossing, RANGE explains the benefits of breadth, diverse experience, interdisciplinary thinking, and delayed concentration in a world that increasingly demands hyperspecialization. Captivating and enthralling, Epstein’s potent insights and delightful storytelling make RANGE a vital read for everyone.
