"The Tao is the way, the truth, and the universe. Lao Tzu wrote 81 simple yet profound verses that transcended the fundamental reality of life. Life is about living in harmony with yin and yang. Without darkness, there can be no light. Too often, we struggle against the waves when we can just flow with them."
"Timothy Ferris shows people how to create their dream lives right now, rather than someday when they are “retired.” Tim uses outsourcing, geographic arbitrage, and performance/productivity principles to transform his life from 80 hour workweeks to 4 hour workweeks, while making as much per month as he used to make in one year."
"Jay Abraham, America’s number one marketing wizard, has helped more than 400 companies, including IBM, Microsoft, Citibank, and Charles Schwab. This book contains 21 ways to “out-think, out-perform, and out-earn the competition."
"This book is a Pandora Box that opens up an inspiring world of private labels, informational products, and license systems to transform your ideas into reality. Dan Kennedy is the marketing king who has helped thousands make 7-figure incomes on a part-time, residual model."
"A simple yet profound guide for how anyone can achieve anything. The more we grow, the more we can help people, do what is right, and pay back society. Everyone in the world should read Guy’s strategies and techniques on presentations, pitching, business plans, marketing, and communicating."
"The Art of War is the most prestigious and influential book on strategy that has ever been written. Sun Tzu showed how organizations can thrive in times of conflict and chaos by mastering five things: the way, the weather, the terrain, the leadership, and the discipline. Strategy is simply the art of making the right trade-offs. Everything we do in life has a cost-benefit."
"The problem with small businesses is that most people work in it, rather than on it. People turn what was once a labor of love into a love of labor. They focus so much on trying to capture the moment that they stop being in the moment."
"Time is potential freedom. Energy gives you real liberty. The true currency of our life is not the hours, but what we put in those hours. We can systematically increase our capability and productivity by increasing our energy."
"Thomas Friedman brilliantly shows how the forces of globalization have connected the world in ways never possible before. The walls, ceilings, and even floors that once separated people, societies, and countries have been flattened out. Now, a single individual has more power than any other time in history."
"The most essential skill to success is mastering the art of relationships. This classic book shows you how to create genuine relationships with people so that you may take power and responsibility of your life. Anyone who wants to succeed with people must master the strategies and techniques within this book."
"Carl Sandburg called this book “the best book ever written about how to write.” The art of writing is really the art of expressing yourself. We are all authors, narrators, and directors of our lives. Dare to live a story worth telling, worth remembering, worth living…"
"Cialdini’s classic book on influence contains universal principles that govern our every day behavior, whether we are aware of them or not! Anyone who wants to achieve anything in this world must master these rules of persuasion. This is one of the most important psychological works ever created. It shows both the science and art of success."
"This innovative guide contains many step-by-step techniques for growing a large network and building deep relationships (attending conferences, using pings, mastering organizational techniques, etc.) that aren’t covered by any other books in the field. It is unique in its blend of strategy, technique, and technology that integrates with our modern world and lifestyle."
"Everyone can write, and everyone has to write. There is something magical about putting that abstract dream onto the concreteness of writing. The printing press and the internet revolutionized the world because it democratized information. Everyone had a chance to share their voice and to learn from others. You owe it to yourself to be the best writer you can be."
"Chi is the generative life force that gives us health. Mantak shows people how to develop this powerful energy flow to achieve physical, psychological, and spiritual health and balance. Chi is the most powerful healing method in the world. The Tao connects with us through chi."
"It is the American paradox that the more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we seem to become. Pollan explains why this has happened and what we can do about it. Understanding the context of health is vital to understanding how to achieve it in our current circumstances."
"Dr. Colgan has assembled a complete guide to unleashing one’s physical power through posture, weight training, and nutrition. Dr. Colgan focuses on exercises that strengthen the actual core (obliques, rotator cuffs, etc.) for functional muscle that looks, feels, and works great!"
"This is an excellent book exploring the “balanced and comprehensive system of health care used by Chinese physicians, martial artists, and meditators for over 5,000 years” (Cover).

"Understanding economics is understanding trade-offs, incentives, and how the world works. This refreshing interesting book does away with all the dry equations, graphs, and jargon of traditional textbooks to show the heart of the matter."
"Peter Lynch, America’s number-one money manager of Fidelity’s multibillion-dollar Magellan Fund, shows the layperson how to use what they already know to outperform the “experts” and to create investments on businesses that really matter."
"In today’s chaotic times, the only person you can rely on is yourself to create the life and the future you desire. Phil Town follows the fundamental and value analysis that have made Warren Buffet, Peter Lynch, and Benjamin Graham legendary investors. He breaks down technical details into simple methods anyone can learn and apply."
"The employee works for someone else and values security. The self-employed works for himself and values being his own boss and doing his own thing. The business-owner creates systems and delegates work to other people, and he values freedom. The investor makes money with money, and he values freedom as well."
"Clason’s timeless classic is not just about how to acquire money, keep money, and make money earn more money. Rather, it is also about how to achieve personal wealth, happiness, and even meaning in this world. The use of parables and stories make this a great book for children as well."
"Dr. Frankl went through the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps. While many gave into despair and gave up their will to live, Frankl fought on to create some meaning from these horrible experiences. He believed that anything in life can be dealt with as long as we are able to find meaning in it."
"Less is More. Too often, we get so caught up in capturing the moment that we forget to be in the moment. We turn our labor of love into a love of labor. We forget that what we chase isn’t what we caught. This book is about freeing yourself from all that is meaningless, so you have space for what really matters."
"Studies of star performers have shown that 85% of the difference in success is attributed to emotional intelligence factors rather than cognitive abilities like IQ or technical abilities. In today’s competitive world, the art of relationships is more indispensable than ever."
"De Bono shows us how to tap into our mind’s creative powers through lateral thinking, which is outside the box thinking. Much of what we learn in school is vertical thinking, which is logical, step-by-step thinking. In a world where the highest value comes from strategic design, from new innovations, and from revolutionary breakthroughs, only those who can think will survive."
"Hill was born into poverty and dedicated 25 years of his life to study and model successful men such as Charles Schwab, Theodore Roosevelt, and Henry Ford to discover the secret principles that would help the average man achieve great financial and emotional wealth."
"This book opened my eyes to the fact that perception is reality. We have to first change our thoughts, which determine our attitudes, our actions, and our life. Anthony Robbins is the leader of leaders. He has spent his life studying and modeling the principles of success. He has helped people from all walks of life, from CEOs to homeless, from Olympians to celebrities, and from young to old."
"Lifehacker is an amazing collection of technology and productivity tips that will turbo-charge your life. There are many system tools to help automate repetitive tasks, streamline work-flow, and manage life in today’s technological age."
"This is a revolutionary system that manages time and life from the bottom-up, rather than the top-down that most other productivity system uses. Allen uses a filtering method that deals with work as they come in, organizing them in various contexts and category systems for easy retrieval. David knows we can achieve stress-free productivity by using a reliable system that stores everything needed."
"This is REQUIRED reading for everyone. There is absolutely no reason why the average college student should read at a pathetic 300 wpm. We should all be reading at 1500 wpm at the least, with high comprehension as well."
