There are a lot of books out about success. I read Stephen Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective people" when I was in High School. I read "Rich Dad Poor Dad", "The Richest Man in Babylon", and other like books including "The Millionaire Next Door". I love these kind of books that tell important real life lessons of work ethic, thinking long term and building wealth for future security. There are books like "Outliers" also that talk about the differences of what makes someone like Bill Gates or Michael Jordan so exceptional. How much of it is pure talent and how much is how hard they worked and then how much of it is actually kind of circumstances and luck? How about "How to win friends and influence people"? Always a classic. "Love and Respect". Great insights to a healthy marriage.
What books would you recommend for good parenting, dealing with stress, improving your marriage, setting up a business, living your life, recruiting, being a good person?
Always an interesting question, I'm looking forward to the answers.
To improve personal relationships/marriage, I recommend "The 5 love languages" by Gary Chapman
For good parenting, I recommend "the price of Privilege" by Madeline Levine
Thanks for your comments. Hopefully, we get some more interest in this subject. Always helpful to learn from what has inspired others to be "better".
