The Best Personal Growth Books Recommended by You

Last week I asked your help to give your recommendations on best books for personal growth. Thanks to your contributions, there are now 15 books on my list. Many of them are absolutely new to me. It’s always exciting to learn about new resources I wasn’t aware of before.

I’m sure the recommended books can also be useful to all readers, so here I’d like to give you the complete list. Here they are:

I don’t think I can read all these books by the end of this year (since there are so many of them), but I will definitely check them out. Thanks for your participation!


  1. Hi Donald,
    What a great list. There are a few I haven’t read and will go take a look at. Thanks for posting the list!

  2. I was surprised to see that no one put Tim Ferriss’s “The Four-Hour Work Week” on your list. It is an entertaining book about how to spend your life on meaningful pursuits.

  3. Kirsten,
    I share the same feeling as you. The books in the list give us new opportunities to learn and grow.

    I agree with you that The 4-Hour Workweek is a great book. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. I was surprised no one added ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill. It’s classic.

    Anyway, there is definitely a positive result from this post for me – I’ve added few more books to my “ToRead” list. Thanks Donald!

  5. Back in the 1980s I read the book “The 25-hour woman” by Sybil Stanton. It changed my life. It teaches the same things other people began teaching later, but it places special emphasis on the modern woman’s need to be everything to everyone, or superwoman. I highly recommend it, even for men.

  6. Y.Graf,
