Some of you may have already read some of these or already developed the knowledge in other ways.  Simply choose those that do not duplicate and which help complete your  working knowledge and perspective about life.  (It is best, always, to use Effective Learning, so that you fully harvest these books.  If you stop short of harvesting things, you will not and cannot succeed in life!)

Read the three bolded books, in the order they are on this page, first.


The core idea underlying all of what is necessary, first:

#1 - The Systems Mindset, Sam Carpenter (free download available) - Everything occurs in systems.  Everything is solvable via this simple process:  A --> B --> C --> Result.  All of life works this way.  If you master this, you will be able to master all of life.  So I recommend it first.  It's also very readable and easy to follow.  (This corresponds with The Reality Reading Sequence, on this site.)

Good "booster" to start off with:

Megaliving!, Robin S. Sharma - Despite the title, this is a very good 30 day program to install what is effective in life.  

Sets up philosophy of life and psychology:

#2 The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey - Contains practical
         set ups and effectiveness increasers to follow for the rest of your life!
    To Love Is To Be Happy With, Barry Neil Kaufman (Why you should read it. )
    The Buddha's Way Of Happiness, Thomas Bien - Eliminates the barriers.  Excellent.

Sound psychology:

  A New Guide To Rational Living,  Albert Ellis 

Success and life management:

The Success Principles, Jack Canfield - Make sure you are aligning with the most important ones, asap!  A great reference book to have available. 
First Things First, Stephen Covey - The ONLY best way to live!
Living The 80/20 Way, Richard Koch - The ONLY way to live!!!!
#3 - Awaken The Giant Within, Tony Robbins 

Physical Body

    You, The Owner's Manual, Michael Roizen, M.D. and Mehmet Oz, M.D.

Productivity in harvesting the best life:  (my book)

Life Value Productivity - Link to it from this page:  Books, Booklets.


The Three Laws Of Performance, Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan (appears to be a business book but it is about life; inspiring and powerful)
