The Reading Warrior

We spent a morning with ‘The Reading Warrior’ David Riley. David talked with us about powerful reasons to read and we were transfixed by the mixture of his humble but compelling presence, extraordinary story telling, and his razor sharp rationale: reading makes us clever! We all left his session believing it absolutely.

David challenged us all to read a book a week. His words had a deep impact and many of us have been doing just that - we’ve been relentless! Some people have started their own reading groups to share what they have read as a result.

David Riley and Johnny Lakau-Taoho discuss David’s book about Steven Adams and his aspirational daily training routine.

David shares some of the book titles that he has written.

Head Girl ‘Ofa thanks David at the end of an inspiring session.
