    This is a fantastic list. I would also add in there 'Ready, Fire, Aim' by Michael Masterson. It is definitely MFL compatible.

    As for business biographies, I really enjoyed Anyone Can Do It: My Story by Duncan Bannatyne. His story is interesting, he didn't get off his a$$ and start doing something with this life until he was 30. He was living on the dole for chrissakes! He went from Sidewalk to fastlane. Starting off selling ice cream and ending up with his fitness clubs and being worth multi-millions, he is also on Dragons Den these days.

    Most of my recommendations have been listed already. Another one success mindset is 177 Metal Toughness Secrets of the World Class by Steve Siebold. Concise exploration of a ton of ideas/concepts you will find in other books, along with lots of recommendations for additional books on a subject, and the vast majority are not the authors other works. Good stuff

    Also for a great and comprehensive, but not exhaustive overview of starting your business is Start Your Own Business by Entrepreneur Press. It is 720 pages and touches on every major topic with solid advice along with plenty of recommendations for additional books/resources. (Though it is in love with Apple stuff, and recommends GoDaddy, fail.)

    Oh yeah, a couple of good overview books are the 50 x Classics books by Tom Butler Bowdown, 50 Success Classics, 50 Prosperity Classics, 50 Psychology Classics, 50 Spiritual Classics. A great overview of many many classics in the respective fields.

    SPIN Selling is really good. 'How I Raised Myself From Failure to Success In Selling' by Frank Bettger was also good.

    A few really good books I've read recently include:

    - The Obstacle Is The Way
    - Grow Rich With Peace of Mind (Napoleon Hill book he wrote later in life than Think & Grow Rich. I believe this book is actually better than Think & Grow Rich)
    - 80/20 Sales & Marketing
