Your most influential BOOK TITLE!! and what you learned

73 replies
I was just wondering if you could share with me some of the most influential books you have read and why they are great in your eyes.

I am building my library and I am looking for some new titles to add.

Mostly I read self-development books and how to books but I am curious for any niche.

    There is a series of Books by the late Richard Carlson called Don't Sweat The Small Stuff... The first one ends in ...And It's All Small Stuff. He has written quite a few in different areas. They are the simplest books to read and yet offer the most profound advice in each book. His wife, Kris, continues his good work thank goodness.

    The most influential book that I can think of for myself is called " Your money or your life" by Joe Domingues and Vicki Robin. this book taught me a huge amount of information on frugality and its value. I've changed my life and my spending habits in huge ways because of the effects of this book. I can honestly say that my life would be drastically different if I hasn't read it.

    The basic subject that the book goes over is that you're money is actually your life force, when you take into consideration then you are literally making a trade of your time( a finite resource) for money ( a fairly infinite resource) so pretty much what you're saying is that your life is worth X. Where X is your hourly wage minus miscellaneous expenses. The funny thing about this line of thinking is that most of the expenses that came out of my paycheck were actually related to the job itself. Buying lunches, costuming ( think uniforms and special clothing just for work) and gasoline cost. At the end of the day, my previous career only netted me about $4.25 an hour after taxes and expenses. I wasn't happy to say the least. That's why I'm earning most of my money online. Not all of it is directly proportional to the amount of time I put in.

    At the end of the day it's your job to make the most money you can for the least amount of time. You only have a limited number of time left in this world, and it should not be solely fixated on earning more and more money. There's a lot a life that is still left in all of us, and it's our job to find it.

    At the risk of sounding cliche, the most influential book I've read is the Bible.

    It covers every topic imaginable.

    Self improvement, you've got it. Managing money, you've got it. Politics, you've got it. Inspiration, you've got it. How to's, you've got it. Commerce, you've got it. Marriage, you've got it. Child rearing, you've got it. Relationships, you've got it. Mindsets, you've got it. Wisdom, you've got it.

    I could go on and on, but you get my drift.

        Excellent choices!

        I'll also add Proverbs and Psalms as I've received countless bouts of inspiration and insight from those passages as well as major uplifting in times when it was needed.

        Oh, and I also have to add Ephesians in there too. The scripture Ephesians 6:1 was one of the first all of my children learned.

      I can't agree more, Terra. Nothing can be far greater than the most influential book title of all times - The Bible.

    The Sermon On The Mount by Emmet Fox. It's a modern (1930s) interpretation of some of the stuff from the book of Matthew. The Bible is hard for me to read because of all the thee and thou language along with words that have different meanings today than they did back when they were written. This book makes it all crystal clear and is actually the recipe for a happy life.

      I agree!

      There are many different translations available and many teachings on that good book. I find it fascinating in learning the meanings of the original text in Greek and Hebrew and learning the customs of the the times. It breathes new life and meaning into those passages and I never cease in learning even more than I did the first go at it.

    Earl Nightingale's Greatest Discovery, by Earl Nightingale

    Among many, many other valuable ideas, I learned from Earl that "We become what we think about."

    If you want to be a better person, whether personally or in business or in your family, just condition your thoughts to dwell only on what you ideally want to be like. We each have unlimited potential. We need only imagine or dream of what we want and if we focus on it, our subconscious mind will go to work helping to guide us towards success and achievement in that area.

    When I read the subject line for this post I thought you wanted to know the best title we had ever seen. In which case I was going to choose "Think and grow rich." which is I think a brilliant title.

    It also though is in my opinion one of the best personal development books. I also like

    Psycho cybernetics by Maxwell
    The power of Full engagement by Tony Schwarz

    and anything that is written by Dan Kennedy

    when it comes to the bible .. i find you have to go and find the sources that break down orgininal translations .. because what was written almost 2 thousand years ago .. has been translated so mant times the meaning has been lost ..and most people ignore the important quotes and set on the popular quotes ..

    i believe originally instead of it saying love thy neighbor as thyself .. in greek it was first love thyself..then love thy neighbor as thyself .

    also jesus taught a lot on being wealthy .. he shunned hoarding wealth .. his teaching focus on flow of wealth and getting into a state where you always believe you will have what you need ..

    jesus was the master of love.. and he was trying his darndest to teach people about the power they had ..

      The book I read that made a thousand lightbulbs go off was The Secret. Most people have read that by now. Her follow up to that was The Power - that really changed me!

      After those, The Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard is a classic and anything by Abraham Hicks will move you past your limiting beliefs.

    The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I found it truly inspirational and still remember this part:

    A boy named Santiago encounters a lone alchemist who tells him about personal legends. He says that people only want to find the treasure of their personal legends but not the personal legend itself. He feels unsure about himself as he listens to the alchemist's teachings. The alchemist states "Those who don't understand their personal legends will fail to comprehend its teachings." It also states that treasure is more worthy than gold.

    For anyone who doesnt read much. I know because I use to never read I started out with Audible the audio books from amazon. I would get two new books a month with my membership and maybe buy a few but I would listen to them every night before bed. most all of the classics I have on audio book.

    So try that at the very least to get going on learning more stuff and getting more knowledge. You will find some gold mines in some of these books and repeated principles throughout history so once you get to studying you will find commonalities to live by which most successful people know and practice.

    The halo effect-- and the eight other business delusions that deceive managers
    By Phil Rosenzweig

    Summary: Geared towards the business minded individual who also wants to add scientific rigor to their understanding of running a successful business. This book deconstructs the fundamental flaw of connecting the dots of only successful companies, and how there is absolutely no blueprint to success. From the 1000 companies that failed, there are maybe 20 that are considered successful within a 5 year period, and afterwards, many of them will still fail. Technology and increased competition being one of the major contributors to rapid rise and fall of businesses.

    Review: This is not a light read, nor should it be. Taken outside the business context, you can see that simply analyzing successful people will not guarantee a 'success' blueprint. What worked for that individual/business at that time, will not necessarily work now.

    Rating: 5/5 Highly recommended towards financial analysts, business owners, and business academics.

    "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell is one of the best books I've ever read. It's an interesting discussion on famous psychological and social theories like the broken window theory. Everyone on the Government seat should be given a copy of the book for required reading. It's also obvious that the cover design of the book was well-thought, adding more interesting factors that normal readers usually look for in a book.

    Hi.

    The book is called: 'PFOSH' - Wealth Beyond Reality. (*pronounced fosh) by Tom Garris

    'PFOSH' stands for: platonic, fractal, octave, sympathetic, harmonics.

    This is not a light read and is suggested for individuals interested in 'advanced inner technology'.

    The values of 'relative correspondence', and 'clear perspective perception', are but a few of the feature human attributes that will be enhanced.

    Some great works of fiction have been inspirational enough for me:

    The Imajica & Sacrament by Clive Barker - both deal with feelings of love, pain, God, sex, death and the majesty that life on Earth is surrounded by forces we have little understanding of.

    As Clive Barker put it himself:

    "I am a man, and men are animals who tell stories. This is a gift from God, who spoke our species into being, but left the end of our story untold. That mystery is troubling to us. How could it be otherwise? Without the final part, we think, how are we to make sense of all that went before; which is to say, our lives?

    So we make stories of our own, in fevered and envious imitation of our Maker, hoping that we'll tell, by chance, what God left untold. And finishing our tale, come to understand why we were born.

    Living and dying, we feed the fire"

      Maybe these aren't exactly what you're looking for but here are some of mine:

      Influence by Robert Cialdini
      NLP by Bandler and Grinder
      The Prince by Machiavelli (don't take this the wrong way)

      All three of these have changed the way I view the world. Influence deals with the abstract powers of influence and why people believe or follow a person or idea. NLP deals with the structure of language and its inherent power. The Prince deals frankly with politics and power while painting a view of these things which most people never experience.

      Motivation and inspiration are great but I like to have some real substance for my brain to chew on.

    1. Don't Worry, Make Money - Richard Carlson, Ph.D.
    Published in 1997, i was a gift from my mother. The simple trick of non-worrying and it works wonders for me.

    2. Rich dad, Poor dad - Robert Kiyosaki

    So far this book is truly a gem, an old book but a great one. Mr. Wattles had an excellent perspective on the topic of getting rich and how it is truly a science, not just luck. Definitely worth checking out guys!

    Enjoy and thanks everyone for the excellent suggestions!

    Have to agree with The Bible. If I could also put in a shameless plug, I just wrote this post about Bible Verses and Business.

    Two other books, not yet mentioned are:

    The E-Myth Revisited, by Michael Gerber. This changed my mindset about building and running business. Had I read this book earlier, it would have had a total shift in my previous company, one that grew fast and fell hard.

    Man's Search For Meaning, by Viktor Frankl. I don't know how to put in words how this book impacted me. It is an autobiography of concentration camp hell, a self-help book, a psychology book, and more. This is a book I re-read often.

      Man's Search For Meaning, by Viktor Frankl. I don't know how to put in words how this book impacted me. It is an autobiography of concentration camp hell, a self-help book, a psychology book, and more. This is a book I re-read often.[/QUOTE]

      Thanks for the great share, gonna add that one to my site...

        You're welcome. That book shaped my views on so much, I think it is one of the most important books written. I do re-read that one almost every year, if not more frequently. Sooner or later I will have it totally memorized!

    2 books that are not self help books but that were inspirational:

    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

    And...

    A Tale Of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

    I've already replied with my most influential book title but I have to add another one.

    It's Maxwell Maltz - Psycho-Cybernetics. I see it's come up a couple of times in the thread. I've learned a great deal from this book about how the brain works, about the power of self-image, and about how to take control of your thoughts and direct them towards positive things.

    Great read, I highly recommend it!

    The Richest Man In Babylon changed my entire perspective on managing and handling money, after I read that book my reserves and purchasing power have gone way up.

    To repeat what hbteos234 said, anything by Napoleon Hill.

    See You At The Top by Zig Ziglar.

    I seldom read until I have read The Secret, it has changed my mindset, and now I like to read (although I'm 32 now, but it is always not too late).

    Now I'm reading Think and Grow Rich. Thanks for sharing many good books here and I will read it one by one later.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers

    I'm more than halfway through Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz and it's easily the most influential book on goal striving and psychology I've ever read.

    Putting this one right next to The Richest Man In Babylon and See You At The Top of books that changed my life.
