I’ve been a voracious reader all of my life, and I’ve read pretty much every genre out there at some point. My favorite “genre” if you will, has been non-fiction and “self improvement.” Why do I put self improvement in quotes? Because there are a TON of books out there that are absolute time wasting trash at worst, and a scarce few of golden nuggets surrounded by filler and fluff at best.
However, I’ve found a few books that are truly worth the price and the time to read. I’ve created a Recommended Reading List that has those books on it. I have read each and every one of those books from cover to cover, and some of them I have read multiple times. A few of them, (The Rational Male series) I not only have read multiple times, but I also have them in multiple formats. Paperback, electronic, and audio versions. Yes, they are that good.
This list is by no means exhaustive, and I by no means claim to be an authority on what to read and that it will work for all readers all of the time. I’ve found that they have worked for me, and if you are anything like me, they will probably work for you too. I’ll continue to add to this list as time goes on and as I keep reading more literature out there. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know. I’ll check it out and if I find value in it, I’ll add it to the list.
Each book is worth the read as a man, each book is worth the time. There is very little if any filler in each of them. They are all gold. Read them. Then read them again. Then give a copy of them to someone you know who could benefit from them. You just might save a life. I’m not kidding about this. I’m serious as cancer or a heart attack when I say this.
The life you save just might be someone you care deeply about, or it might be your own.
