          I haven't seen this much rich collection of Best Personal Development books. I highly appreciate if you quote some links too so that most of the forum users can down load from the link here instead of google out later...

            I have edited my post to include links to Amazon for the books.

            I also added The Trick to Money Is Having Some - Stuart Wilde, which is a fantastic book if you want to change your attitude and beliefs about money.

            I hope this helps.

      I have scanned that book in Barnes & Noble, but never sat down to read it. I may put that on my list next.

      Along a similar vein, I also highly recommend The Little Red Book of Wisdom by Mark DeMossThe Little Red Book of Wisdom by Mark DeMoss .

      It is a great book about doing business.
