You can judge the value of a personal development book based on the concrete changes it produces in your life. Do you walk away happier or more productive? Do you walk away with a set of skills you didn’t have coming in?
By that metric, these are the best personal development books I have ever read. If I taught a class called “Living: A Guide To Do It Right,” this list would constitute the best syllabus I could compile.
I’ll be adding to this list. Not just the new revelations, but the old ones whose lessons have become so ingrained in my mind that I forgot to mention them. For now, here are the 12 best personal development books (up until now).
We used to have these “All Hands” meetings at work.
During the meeting, the senior partners would take turns presenting about how business was going. What new projects they were selling, new work in the pipeline…
Not necessarily a showcase of oral presentation skills or public speaking prowess.
But I noticed something interesting in those meetings. Given the same exact topic and the same exact audience, one partner could make you perk up for those 5 minutes. Another would lull you to sleep.
I’ve been reading the Night Angel trilogy. It’s okay. A real page-turner, but I don’t find myself marveling at it like I did with Game of Thrones. (After Game of Thrones everything else pales, and this post explains why…)
The main character is introduced on page 1. He is normal. But we discover that he is indeed NOT NORMAL. He is marked for greatness. He is special.
