The Five Best Personal Development Books

by Mawi on January 24, 2011

I’ve spent the last eleven years reading personal development books. Here are five I recommend highly:

1) For pure effectiveness training, nothing beats the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  I use Covey’s method to schedule my week every Sunday night.

2) For understanding how to program the computer that is your mind, don’t miss Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins.  His 30-day CD set, Personal Power II, is the best audio program ever created.

3) For perfectionists and those who judge themselves too harshly, A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson is a must read.  It’s not as mainstream as the first two, but offers a unique and compelling roadmap for mental healing.

4) For anyone who misses the beautiful and flowery language of the 19th century, get a As a Man Thinketh by James Allen.  This short read is beautifully written and shows the connection between thought, action, and circumstance.

5) And finally, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, was recommended to me by a group of 18-year olds at an alternative high school.  I read it and immediately understood why it was a mega-bestseller.

Honorable Mention: The Optimistic Child, by Martin Seligman, offers the best take on resilience that I’ve seen.  (Steve, I’m sorry, but I cannot list books that Mawi Learning has published.)
