Over the last decade I’ve read a lot of self improvement books about everything from productivity to meditation and mindfulness.
Viktor E Frankl, a psychiatrist, psychologist and the author of Man’s Search for Meaning spent several years trapped inside a concentration camp in WW2. Don’t let the title deceive you — this is one of the most influential self improvement books of the last 100 years.
Whether you’d like to work for four hours a week or not, this book taught me loads about productivity and efficiency. I put off reading this book for years because the title seemed a bit shallow but I have to say, it’s one of the most inspiring self improvement books I’ve read. Inspiring and beautifully written, Zen and the Art of Happiness teaches us that your state of mind and your happiness is always a choice. In a world where many of us are in a constant state of striving, Eckhart Tolle takes us back a step and helps us to realise that everything we need is rooted in the ‘Now’. Magical, uplifting and beautifully inspiring, the popularity of the Alchemist speaks for itself. Finally, if you feel I’ve missed any important self improvement books off the list, please feel free to add some more to the list.

Now, after a while, been having a little browse through your bricks of thought – loving your posts!
That is a book that will change your life or at the very least leave you asking a lot of important questions. Love the list – you have offered some interesting suggestions and some more established favorites. In the first of what I hope are many posts (more pressing responsibilities permitting), here are some of my reading recommendation.
Until last year, despite his stories regularly appearing in the New Yorker, he had a bit of a cult following, but the release of his short story collection Tenth of December has given George mainstream success. Back in the fifteen hundreds, or something like that, some old toff wrote that fairly turgid classroom favourite, Tom Brown’s School Days.
Of all his (slightly crazed) writing, my favourite novel by Louvish is actually the more low-key What’s Up God? In self-publishing sensation Nick Spalding’s latest novel, the world of fat shaming comes to the fore. Sound Oasis Deluxe Sound Therapy System – A review of the relaxing gadget to help you eliminate sleep problems. 20 Best Self Growth Books – The review of 20 self growth books that had a big impact on my life.
10 Life-Changing Books – The review of 10 self improvement books that can change your life. It covers not only my own experiences and advice, but the advice of well-known and less-known female and male celibates that were occultists, spiritual teachers, writers, inventors, and more.


It’s truly a collection of celibacy advice and experiences from many sources, and that’s why it will serve as a rich source of inspiration and information for would-be and current celibates. Whether you want to experience much greater awareness or remove suppressed emotions and other mental impurities causing misery, Buddha's Meditation is a right choice. It will help you to know yourself and this reality; it’s up to you how far you want this wisdom to unfold. Practicing this meditation will cause your take on life to ease up, and you will be able to understand the essence of events in your life, because you’ll stop projecting your subjective view.
In no particular order of greatness, here’s my list of some of the best self improvement books out there. Whilst inside, Frankl discovered that everything can be taken from a person except the freedom to choose an attitude or mindset. Covering everything from productivity to integrity and dealing with change, the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is refreshing, non preachy and life changing. There’s no preaching here — just Tom Hodgkinson chatting about everything from anxiety to money and happiness.
If you want to get out of the 9-5 routine, work and live anywhere in the world and have time to see it, this book will give you a starting point. Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway will take you through different fears from public speaking to ageing, and suggest practical exercises and solutions to help you conquer your fears once and for all. The title is more about adopting a ‘beginner’s mindset’  when you meditate rather than the book being purely for beginners. Unlike, lots of positive thinking books out there, there’s a refreshing honesty to this one that you can’t help but listen to. The book is written in a question and answer format and offers clear and easy to understand information on everything from the ego to enlightenment and mindfulness. Rather than preaching about one specific method, Inside Meditation takes an objective view and covers everything from practical meditation exercises and breathing technique, to the science behind meditation and why it’s beneficial.
It’s a story about following your dreams, listening to your intuition and following your own path through life. A beautifully written and inspiring classic, this is a must for anyone interested in spirituality, meditation and enlightenment. This means that if you buy any of these books through my website I will make a small commission, which I plan to put towards funding for another yoga teacher training course.
This book is a perfect example of what can be achieved by an author who is an expert at his subject and very passionate as well. I feel like I feel like I’ve since read dozens more great books which should be added to the list though! Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. I read it as a kid, in school, and remember nothing about it – which, when you consider what a wonderful rainbow of writing there is in the world is something of an indictment of how English is still taught. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead have all risen, it’s left to stand up comedian Gerry Davis to save the world.


The Catch 22 in question is a ridiculous piece of bureaucracy which states that a soldier can only be relieved of flying dangerous combat missions if he’s insane, and yet if he requests to be removed from said missions, it proves he is sane, and so must fly the missions. Never read any Wodehouse, always thought it was a little old fashioned, but will give him a go.

You may copy free content of this blog providing you leave a link to this blog after each copied article. Although money can’t bring happiness as we all know, having it helps in the world we live in.
The success of the book speaks for itself — it’s become an international best seller. The author stresses how time is our most valuable commodity and helps you figure out how to manage it more effectively.
In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois).
It goes without saying that if you have any recommendations of your own to add, then please do in the comments section. In Persuasion Nation probably has the better stories, but Civilwarland in Bad Decline has the 100 page novella, Bounty, about a young boy searching for his sister in a post apocalyptic world of mutants, which is brilliant. His book of essays and magazine articles, The Braindead Megaphone, is also worth reading.
From there I read his Avram Blok series, which recount the madcap travels of Israeli dissident.
Both funny and meditative, it also has one of the finest ending sequences I’ve read in a novel. Although in many ways it’s more of a series of set pieces than a fully coherent novel, Spalding has a great eye for a hilarious situation, and there were many times where I laughed. I learned to appreciate any money I had after reading this book and as a result ended up getting more.
For someone so highly regarded in the literary world, his stories are full of zombies (Sea Oak), ghosts (CommComm), and even a cow with a plexiglass window in its side (Downtrodden Mary’s Failed Campaign of Terror). Using real world examples and even science to relay the material, this book can really boost you into overdrive to achieve your goals and desires. I like endorsements, reviews – Amazon lists, Goodread groups, crowd sourced recommendations on Facebook. I highly recommend it because it really can inspire anyone (students, CEOs, people who feel stuck in their jobs) check it out!
