The 10 Best Personal Development Books

I’m often asked which books are most transformational for people like us who want to do fantastic work and lead our best lives. So here are ten of the best. Read them. Share them. Study them. Live them …

  1. Jonathan Livingston Seagull
    Richard Bach
    With lines like: “Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation.” This book will move you deeply. I re-read it in Thailand. Still amazingly good.

  2. Think and Grow Rich
    Napoleon Hill
    Fantastic book. Not so much about financial wealth as it is about the making of a rich life. You’ll learn how important it is to have a burning desire (this galvanizes your focus and causes the release of your creativity) + the imperative of setting clear goals + the value of “a mastermind alliance”. This book truly changed my life when I was starting out as a self-published author with nothing but a dream in my hands. Times were tough. This book got me through.

  3. The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius
    Marcus Aurelius
    Marcus Aurelius was a warrior ­– who then became a Roman emperor. He wrote his lessons on greatness and a life well lived during a multi-year military campaign. Someone got his notes. And put it into this book. I go back to this book often. It strengthens my character. And resolve to help more people.

  4. Steve Jobs
    Walter Isaacson
    One of the best books I’ve ever read. Period.

  5. Long Walk To Freedom
    Nelson Mandela
    Nelson Mandela’s one of my heroes. Noble. Courageous. Focused. A visionary. If I could be 1/100 of who he is, I’d be overjoyed. This is his autobiography. You’ll walk with him through his days as a lawyer, his time as a disruptor, his prison years and his period as the positional leader of South Africa.

  6. Stop Acting Rich
    Thomas Stanley
    Thomas Stanley became famous for The Millionaire Next Door. But this book – not so well known – is exceptional. He explains the concept of “The Glittering Rich”, shares how too many of us live beyond our means and how to create true financial freedom. Like most of the books I read, I listened to it.

  7. As You Think
    James Allen
    Maybe ten times. That’s at least how many times I’ve read this book. And like all great books, it seems better + wiser and deeper every time I read it. Of course, the book hasn’t changed. Just my ability to grasp the information. And understand the concepts. This book is all about the power of your daily thinking. And how it drives your life’s behavior. As you know so well: your behavior shows us your beliefs. And this awesome book will inspire you to build new ones.

  8. The Magic of Thinking Big
    David Schwartz
    Uber-practical. Tons of value. Great concepts, like “Go Through Life First-Class”. Every student, teammate and human being should read this book – along with How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, that work should also be on my list. True.

  9. Talent is Overrated
    Geoff Colvin
    Read this one a few years ago. Changed the way I viewed Genius. Confirms a lot of the work of exceptional performance researchers like the famed Anders Ericsson that talent is less about natural gifts and far more about devotion to a skill, relentless practice and patience. Another superb audiobook.

  10. Spark
    John Ratey
    One of the best books I’ve read in years. I’m on my third reading. Shares the latest (and so fascinating) research on how exercise transforms the brain, our performance, our productivity and even builds a new type of brain that is excellent at resisting stress. Please do your life a giant favor. And read this book. Today!

Ok. So there you go. Some of my favorite books. Go study them. And use them.

Please remember, ideas – flawlessly translated into reality – are the keys to breathtaking success. And you becoming more of who you truly are. Oh – and definitely make some time each day to read. Small little advances in your knowledge base lead to quantum improvements in your performance over time.
