    Its about embracing vulnerability and imperfection. Can have a huge impact on males who were raised to believe vulnerability is weakness. Definitely popular but not main stream.

    I’ll edit this in the morning with a properly formatted recommendation, or two (or three).

    For now just an observation...the first 2 books were mindset/personal development books, yes, very important.
    I’d love to see more business focused books for the next one.

    Influence by Cialdini, Zero to One, Lean Start Up...something along those lines. I think those will garner some great talks amongst the collective here.

    Actually, I’ll just format it now, and yes, it’s a little mainstream, however, it’s importance cannot be overstated.

    How to Get Rich by Felix Dennis

    [​IMG]

    It's one of my personal top 3 business/philosophy books. It's very similar to the Millionaire Fastlane in some aspects and unique in some other aspects (for example, the author cautions against losing yourself when pursuing wealth).

    My recommendation is ‘The Power of Habit: Why we do what we do in life and business’ by NY Times journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Duhigg.

    258C11D1-B84F-476F-9ABA-074D738733CC.jpeg

    The Power of Habit is an easy read on one of the most important factors in accumulating wealth and in attaining success in any field.

    This book describes the habits that keep people on the Sidewalk, Slowlane and how to change your habits so you can reach the Fastlane and an Unscripted lifestyle.

    In other words: A must read for any fan of The Millionaire Fastlane and Unscripted who wants help in realizing his or her goals.

    I found this book very hard to read although it’s a compelling story.

    TL;DR
    The main takeaway of the book however is that you can choose your actions and have control over your thoughts independent of your circumstances and surroundings.

    Good post! I feel that a lot of colleges forget to educate their students about building genuine relationships, influence, negotiation and persuasion. The soft sciences teach these constructs in detail, however I think they can do a better job at teaching their students on how-to apply these ideas.

    Also which one of those books are your favorite?

    This book absolutely changed my focused and helped save my life. It talks about the dignity of the human being and how people can find self respect and Love yourself when you have been unable to and to keep your humanity when those about you are losing theirs. People who were in concentration camps sharing their one piece of bread with their whole cabin, the camp commandent who risked his life to buy meds on the black market for his prisoners... Worth reading!

    Bruce Lee: A Life

    Not a self-improvement book, just an objective biography about an interesting guy who lived an interesting and exciting life.

    It would be interesting to read it and see what life lessons we all take away from it.
