I have read most of them and I am a big fan of Dosteovsky, I think you probably would like "The Idiot" by Dostoevsky. I really liked "The death of Ivan Ilych" by Tolstoy it makes you think about your mortality in a very impactful way.

Oh yeah I read The Idiot in gr. 9, I had forgotten. Lol I remember I wrote a book report on it, something about how the theme of the book is like Nice Guys Finish Last or something.

How is The Millionaire Next Door not on this list under Mindset? Even in the first few pages of Wealth Exposed MJ DeMarco mentions how living the showy lifestyle is preventing people from becoming rich. IMO, if you want to be rich and/or free, Millionaire is required reading. Not wasting money is step #1; and that's the main topic of Millionaire.

Guy A: Gets a great deal on 2017 Range Rover. $60k and 6 year loan ($1100/mo after insurance and probably $200/mo upkeep). He moves to $250k house with a mortgage, tax, insurance, HOA, and upkeep. $1800/mo. He gets the iPhone 12 at $50/mo. He gets a dog ($100/mo), gets a GF who likes the high life ($300/mo), goes on $2400 vacations twice a year ($200/mo). Do the math we're nearly at $4000 before the appx $500/mo for food, gasoline, medical, etc. This guy needs to pull out his credit cards and have his GF move in and help with mortgage just to make ends meet.

Guy B: Keeps driving his 2004 Malibu ($100/mo maintenance and changes his own oil). He gets a $700/mo apartment that's just fine for his needs. He gets 1 year old Pixel 3 phone new in box on Ebay which amounts to $10/mo. Catfood is $30/mo, and GF actually saves him money because she too wants to be financially free. They do go out though and enjoy the occasional weekend getaway ($200/mo). He invests in 401k; but he also gets tax deductions due to owning a business. So, he's still at $4000/mo income. Do the math, add $500 for food, etc, and we're barely at $1500.

Guy A has $0 at the end of one year, a Range Rover that keeps breaking, a GF he hates, a messy dog, and lots of stress about money. Guy B is easily able to save $20,000 in one year to put towards his business. MJ DeMarco of course touches on this in his books. However, The Millionaire Next Door drives it home. Guy A has no chance to be rich. Guy B is in the Fastlane!

I know now is not Christmas. But, I thought of sharing this. This happened a year after I quit my full-time job. Youths in my church was having a celebration and I don't have money to buy gifts. So, I thought of my ebooks.

Funny things is the girl that randomly received this thumb drive was and is still doing dropshipping. :arghh:

A blessed Christmas and a happy new year 2018.
This pendrive costs about RM60.00 [ US$13] and it contains a books collection which cost more than RM200.00 [ US$44].
Just as Christ changed the world on 25th December, may this books collection change your life.
It did for me.
You don't have to read the whole collection. Below I listed all the books and the reasons why you should read it. Pick the right reasons, and it will propels you to read it.
If not, depending on the reasons I attached; give it to whom you think he/she needs it.
Be prepared. You might need to depend much on Google. Most of these books requires advanced understanding of English.
But, when you managed to go through it you will realize that you're the most genius person ever lived.
Merry Christmas.
- Keep Catholic Mission Terengganu deep in your heart.
- There is also an ebook reader attached. Copy it to your smartphone to read the books on the go.
