Are You Reading a Self-Help Book Right Now? If So, Which One?

I am reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and taking notes so I understand the material, and I am also flipping through Return to Love by Marianne Williamson which I've already read. I am a self-improvement book junkie (and religion/science books also), I have stacks of them...

      I'm reading and listening to the Course in Miracles. I'm also reading Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. My next read is going to be Jack Canfield's - The Success Principles. Good thing I took that Photoreading course, best money I ever spent.

    I've read a compendium of personal development, business and spirituality books and still find something of a gem in each of them.

    Two that aren't really personal development books specifically but are fiction books that act as a metaphor for some fascinating concepts of thought are "The Alchemist" and "The Celestine Prophecy".

    I'd had quite a few recommendations to read them both and read them a couple of weeks ago. They really resonated with me and I'd have to say they are two of the best books I've read. (I read about 3 or 4 books a week).

    And of course there is my own recently published book - It's fabulous :p

    The question is are you implementing anything of all the things you've been reading so far?

    or ...

    Have fun

    I have been in Self Improvement, Mind Power and Spiritual Evolution for years, and for me there is jusy one book that towers above the others, written by a person from which some of the later "teachers" learned.

    Science of Being in Twenty Seven Lessons by The Baron Eugene Fersen.

    If you read, understand and implement this book, no other book matters.

    The LOA is just plain wrong which is why it fails for most people.

    This is the introduction by The Baron Eugene Fersen:

    HEALTH, Success and Happiness are the Foundation and Aim of every human life. Health is Energy. It is your capital. The more you have of it, the better off you are.

    Success is the intelligent use to which you put your capital of Energy Health.

    Happiness is the satisfaction you get from the proper combination of these two, Health and Success.
    The Source of all Health, physical, mental and spiritual, is the limitless Life Energy of the Universe, from which all life in Nature springs. Every human being is equipped by Nature with the physical means to contact and use that Life Force. The more you contact It, the stronger and healthier you become, thus adding constantly to that initial capital of Energy of yours with which you have to make a Success in your life. Few have done so, because few have known that it could be done, and those few have kept the secret for themselves.

    "Science of Being" simply strips the mystery and uncertainty from these plain, basic Truths of life and puts you in direct conscious contact with the Universal Forces and Laws amidst which you live. It teaches you to attune yourself intelligently to the gigantic ebb and flow of those Cosmic Currents, in such fashion as to enlist their full power to help you reach your goal, instead of unconsciously opposing yourself to them.

    Thus it completely re-organizes your human existence from the bottom upwards, giving you first a sound physical body through which to express your activities, then a healthy and vigorous mind to govern and direct them most advantageously and finally a ready access to the priceless and unlimited soul treasures stored within you as within every individual born to this world. You are started into a correlative growth and expansion on these three planes of your Being which results in corresponding material and intellectual rewards, not because those rewards are given to you from the outside, but because you have developed in yourself the strength of character and the ability to take them.

    The majority of people today fumble blindly toward an end only vaguely seen, blundering awkwardly athwart the very Universal Laws and Powers that, properly handled, should be their greatest help. When they are flung back bruised and discomfited, the prey of ills physical, mental and spiritual, they sullenly place the blame on God, Fate, the local politician or anywhere except where it actually belongs—on their own ignorance.

    "Science of Being" eliminates that guilty factor by giving you the right perspective of yourself in relation to the Universal Forces of which you are the product. It opens your eyes to the intangible elements with which you have to deal and delivers into your hands the conscious control of your own Destiny. You will know how to restore your bodily health when you are ill and how to increase your vitality and energy when you are well. You will develop your mental faculties to the highest degree. You will stabilize your emotional side, replacing fear by Confidence, nervousness by Poise and worry by Peace and Harmony.

    Achievement is a prize locked securely inside that curious and delicate assortment of complex parts which is YOU. All those parts need in order to pour forth into realization their measureless treasures of latent possibilities is the proper correlation one to another and to the Power which drives them. That is the end which it is the purpose of this Course to accomplish, so that you may be able, through the development of your own inherent qualities and forces, to experience to the full in this earthly existence the ultimate of all human desires—Health, Success and Happiness.

    Cordially yours,

    Eugene Fersen.

    Once I read a book then I go back and just read parts of it, so I'm now reading One Minute Millionaire, The Attractor Factor and The Magic of Believing (one of my favorites).

    If you can read this.... thank a teacher.
    If you can read this in English... thank a vet!

    I'm looking at my bookcase and there's a lot of self help stuff. I love it. I think it's great. This might sound corny, but I'm making notes on "The Power of Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale. I bought a lot of self help books and that's the only one I'm actually making notes on.

      Its not specifically self help, but it can help you

      Mark Levin's book, "Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto". Best political book I've read, maybe ever. I almost never read political by ann coulter, sean hannity, etc. Too biased and opinionated.

      But Levine's book is factual and clear as can be. Clearest summary I've read of whats going on as a country.
