My Recommended Reading List

These books have shaped my life significantly. They are from different categories and made the list because of the impact they’ve had on my life. Eventually (but not yet) you’ll find more than 100 good books to read, organized by category.

This is a reading list is for people who want to invest their time in transformational books. I only list the best books to read in each category. You can be sure that each one is powerful and worth your time.

Bookmark this page and come back often: I’ll keep adding to it.

I was inspired to start this list by James Clear a writer I enjoy weekly. Check out his book list Here.
