Reading is such a huge part of the personal development
world. We all have had those moments when reading
a book where we just stop to reflect and think, "Wow!"

What book has done that for you? And what books
are you currently reading?

For me, I'm reading:

  • Turn the Page by Chris Brady
  • We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident, by Oliver DeMille
  • The Richest Man Who Ever Lived by Steven K. Scott
  • Write Good or Die by (various authors)
  • Financial Faithfulness by Roger Gum
Of these books, The Richest Man Who Ever Lived will be added my list
of books I read at least once per yer. I'm almost done with it and I
can already say I will highly recommend it to anyone that comes
my way.

Great thread!

Books that have inspired me are:

- Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill
- The Slight Edge - Jeff Olson
- Awaken The Giant Within - Anthony Robbins
- The Energy Bus - Jon Gordon
- How To Win Friends & Influence People - Dale Carnegie
- Rich Dad Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki
- Secrets of the Millionaire Mind - T. Harv Eker
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Stephen R Covey

I've been averaging 1 book a month. I do my best to read 10 pages a day. The compound effect of reading is unreal if you keep it consistent.

I'll put The Richest Man Who Ever Lived on my next book to read ;)

That's a wonderful list, Jason. I haven't read The Slight Edge yet but it's on my list.

What books are are you reading right now? Or was I mistaken, and this is your
current reading list?

Also, keep it up with the reading, brother. Few things are as fulfilling, eye opening,
mind expanding, and humbling as reading a book, learning from it, and applying
what it taught you.

If murder mysteries could be turned into stories with more upbeat plots and happy endings (basically, investigation and mystery w/out the murder and crime), I'd have plenty to read. Right now, the list is a pretty embarrassing set of romance ebooks. I like stories with great dialogue, interesting plot twists and emotion/motivation/personality rich descriptions of the characters' behavior. Unfortunately, the interesting writing with those features usually comes with harsher topics. The same is true for movies. Once in awhile, I'll find a good story in a romance novel, otherwise I know the plot could go toward a depressing angle very quickly.

Hi,
I have been reading books on self development for as long as I can remember.
Obviously the well known ones spring to mind, such as Think and Grow Rich, You Were Born Rich (Bob Proctor) etc.
In fact, the very first self development materials I read was a course called The Realization System. I think it is still in print today, and I read it well over 20 years ago.
For me though, Andy Shaw's Creating A Bug Free Mind is the one everyone should read. It's a hefty read and I'm on my second reading but I can't recommend it highly enough.

These lists are great! I'm new to personal development and have heard of many of these books but haven't read a lot of them. I'm looking forward to adding some of these to my reading list.

The only personal development types books that I've read so far are How to Win Friends and Influence People and How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, both by Carnegie. I found the later to be quite inspiring. I've also just finished Getting Things Done by Allen and am about to start The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I read The 7 Habits way back in high school and don't remember all too much. Now that I'm more serious about PD I'm looking forward to giving it another go.

Right now I'm on two books. One is Mindfulness by Joseph Goldstein. It's a book about the Satipatthana Sutta, a Buddhist discourse. However, I strongly believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from cultivating mindfulness and the book is written so the concepts are comprehensible to non-Buddhists laypersons.

The second book is the Way We Eat/The Ethics of What We Eat by Peter Singer. If you're someone who's interested in clean eating/vegetarianism, environmental issues, or ethics in general I strongly recommend this one! It's been a life changing book for me and is one of my absolute favorites.

Thanks! I've seen a couple of her talks and enjoyed them but haven't read one of her books yet. I'll definitely add that to my list!

Thanks, I've read some books on Mindfulness and find the practice very helpful, I might want to read another someday.
