Any strategic reading tips for a survivor candidate?






From a computer scientist (and self-proclaimed “data nerd”) named Scott Griggs:

Hello! Longtime reader/listener here looking for some quick reading recommendations…

I submitted another application for the CBS program. survivor, reality show outsmart, outplay, relive fame. The game is physical as well as mental and includes a large social aspect regarding relationships, building trust, evaluating motives, and making/breaking alliances with other participants.

Do you have any reading recommendations that you think might help if I ever get on the show? At the moment, my short list of books to re-read if I get cast on the show includes How to win friends and influence peopleportions of Wiseman’s 59 seconds (persuasion, motivation) and parts Think like a freak (how to convince people).

You can watch Scott’s audition tape. here. Okay, what would you advise him to read?
