Hi jason! I really admire your reading ethics!
I am reading The Law of Attraction at the moment by Michael Losier.
It is amazing when you go over books a 2nd or 3rd time the realisations or breakthroughs that surface that didnt surface the first time.
Always in a different and better place if we remain the student.
I am also about to listen to 4 hour work Week.
I like to read historical & technology book. I like to know about history and technology.

I have added a few new books to my library thanks to you guys!
Here are a few I love the most that I haven't seen yet here in the thread.
Failing Forward by John C Maxwell. - Helped me love my past failures
The Dip by Seth Godin - Helped me stick with the projects that will bring success and quit the ones that won't
The Purple Cow by Seth Godin - Showed me how to stand out and create a loyal following
Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek - I learned how to better connect with people I am influencing
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK I EVER READ - POSSIBLY THE BEST ONE I WILL EVER READ
Loving What Is - Byron Katie
1. This book took me a while to read. Heavy stuff
2. Once I learned "The Work" my perspective on life changed
THE BEST PART
3. My effectiveness in coaching others dramatically improved.
Bottom line. Thanks to this book I dramatically increased my value as a coach. Thus making thousands more per client because my clients were making thousands more while improving their relationships with their spouses and children, improving their health and spirituality at the same time.
Thanks for the great book recommends guys! Keep them coming.
Has anyone here read...
1. The War of Art
2. The Dark Side of the Light Chasers
Would love your feedback if you have.
Currently reading Presence by Amy Cuddy to work on some social stuffs.
Thinking of going round 2 with Think and Grow Rich to check what new perspectives I picked up.
Thanks Marty! What a great subject; reading...
Reading has eluded me with the onset of my children
But I'm pleased to say they are a bit older and I now have a structured daily method of operation where I've allowed time for reading.
I am reading;
Getting Things Done - David Allen
The Circle of Profit - Anik Singal
The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People - Stephen R. Covey
The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
Master of Destinies: Departure - Shane Krider & Greg Strom
I'm a fan of audio books also; they allow me to multi task in a valuable way and in all sorts of situations. I can be feeding my mind many times over the day with the flexibility of audio books.
I am listening to;
Think & Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill
Purpose, Vision and Goals - Bob Proctor
The Secret (movie version) - Rhonda Byrne, (this one made it to the list because if I'm doing other things I listen to it, I don't necessarily need to watch it)
From this list of books and audio books at this stage the ones that stand out for me are the audio book, Purpose, Vision and Goals - Bob Proctor and the book, Master of Destinies: Departure - Shane Krider & Greg Strom and The Secret (movie version) - Rhonda Byrne.
I have listened to Purpose, Vision and Goals many times over to really internally conceptualise every point and listening has helped me identify my purpose so I would definitely recomend this audio book to anyone.
And the book, Master of Destines: Departure is part of a personal development e-course that I'm doing, I'm actually going through it for a second time and I would recommend this also as it's a very practical course that can be readily applied to any person's life.
I have only just watched/listened to The Secret. I can't believe it's taken me this long to watch it or read it. I absolutely love this movie and I will love the book also. I have known about this book for my whole personal development journey but for some reason I didn't give it any time until just recently. I would recommend this book/movie to absolutely everyone!
My favorite books for self-development
1. Sheila Dainow
Be Your Own Counsellor: A Step-By-Step Guide to Understanding Yourself
2. Susan Jeffers
Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway
3. Maxwell Maltz
4. Valentina Knurova
Finding Yourself in the Town of Geniuses: Climbing the Road to Self Realization
The books that have inspired me and totally changed my life are:
Rich Dad Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki
Business School - Robert Kiyosaki
The Circle Of Profit - Anik Singal
Passion To Profit - Anik Singal
The Email Lifeline - Anik Singal

Can anyone recommend a book that would help overcome pessimism and learn to develop optimism?. That is something I have a significant problem with. Every setback (including two recently where I didn't get a promotion that I applied for) just makes me more pessimistic. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Here's an excellent book: The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. It's awesome.
Lot of books I saw here are interesting and that I had the chance to listen to. I'm not a reader but I consume a lot of audio content, in terms of books lately:
Crucial Conversation - Kerry Patterson (probably the next one)
The Power of Now (Eckhart Tolle)
MONEY: Master the Game (Tony Robbins - Just started)
I also want to listen to: The Properous Coach (Steven Chandler and Rich Litvin)
The Power of Positive Thinking - Norman Vincent Peale
Science and Health - Mary Baker Eddy
The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari - Robin Sharma
I recently finished The Goldfish Method, I actually want to read The Four Hour Work Week. I heard that book was very good, so I definitely don't want to pass it up.
Love Think and Grow Rich
-Bold by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler
-Abundance by the same two guys above
-The Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley
-Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
-Where Good Ideas Come From by Steven Johnson
Has anyone read any of these besides the first one?
