    The title says it all...

    Here are a few that have drastically altered my way of thinking:

    Mastery by George Leonard
    The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
    How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie
    The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida (This is probably my favorite book of all time!!!)

    The Power of Now was one of those books that I read, then read again, and am still reading five years later. If you end up liking it, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle helps explain The Power of Now even further and clarify the ego even more. Happy reading!!

    Novellas by Stefan Zweig. I love the way he writes. Thoughtfully, slow, describing every aspect of motivation so that there is nothing left unrevealed.

    Serpico by Peter Maas was a big influence on my life. He was honest. He would not steal or accept graft. He had high ideals, and tried to fight against the wide spread corruption. He was almost murdered for his efforts.

    A book that changes the way you think: The way of the heart (Fernando Sanchez Dragó). It is a book that you will like to read twice.

    Two nonfiction books in 2017 had a long-lasting impact on how I think about myself, my life, and the choices I make: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson.
