Read Any Good Books Lately?

I love asking thought-provoking questions on LinkedIn and getting immediate thoughtful replies from my wise and wonderful network and throughout the LinkedIn community.

I recently asked: What book has made the biggest difference in your life and business?

The first book on practical spirituality that had a significant influence on me was "Simple Abundance" by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

Here are some of the replies.

James Michener's memoir, "The World is my Home."

"Howto Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie

"Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway" by Susan Jeffers

"Secrets of Six Figure Women" by Barbara Stanny

"Everyone Poops" by Taro Gomi

"Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand

"Manifest Your Destiny" by Wayne Dyer

"The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity" by Catherine Ponder

"Ask & It Is Given" by Esther & Jerry Hicks (and Abraham)

"Leadership & Self-Deception"

"The Anatomy of Peace"

"The Little Engine That Could!"

"Million Dollar Consulting" by Alan Weiss

"Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill

"The Bible"

"Living in the Light" by Shakti Gawain

"The World is Flat" by Thomas Friedman

"The Seven Habits" by Stephen Covey

There's much more at http://www.linkedin.com/answers/professional-development/professional-books-resources/PRO_BKR/338289-6078235?browseIdx=2&sik=1224902029750&goback=%2Eamq

I promised myself not to buy any more books until I read the ones I have so I'll pick one or two of these up at the library. A deadline always prompts me to find the time to read.

What's your favorite book?

    I am humbled to be mentioned in the same column as The Bible, Ayn Rand, Napolean Hill, and those others!

    I’m glad you saw my blog!
    I start an NSA Georgia Fast Track series of classes in November facilitated by David Nour. Your “Million Dollar Consulting” and “Money Talks” are required reading. Thanks for inspiring speakers/consultants like myself to be their best and get paid what they’re worth.

    I’ve got a huge stack by my reading chair right now. I get something from each one that I read…how about Simple Steps: 10 weeks to getting control of your life by Lisa Lelas. That’s a good one.
