Motivational Speaker Books - Best National Thought Leaders

A Listmania! list by Douglas Barkley
The list author says: "Motivational Speaker come and go. Most have written books, and most of their books are poorly written and self serving. Here is a list of Motivational Speaker books that truly had something profound and useful stuff. Sadly, some of these speakers are no longer with us."
The Progress Challenge : Working and Winning in a World of Change
1.  The Progress Challenge : Working and Winning in a World of Change by Dean Lindsay
The list author says:
  "This book is first for a reason!  I wrote a review of this book mainly because I can't believe it is not a best seller.  After reading The Progress Challenge, I booked Dean for a big event (in Chicago) in March 2011 and he rocks!  Funny, timely, easy to work with. I like Dean's stuff so much I am going to add his first book later in this list."
