Reviews: "Pay attention to him and his material, you will be glad you did." Bob Proctor, best-selling author and star of The Secret. Description: It's vitally important that you read books. As Mark Twain wrote, "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them." And many would agree that "personal development" books are the ones to focus on if you're trying to improve yourself, your position in life and your quality of life. But which ones should you read? There are tens of thousands to choose from. Vic Johnson, a veteran personal development author, speaker and trainer, answers that question for us in "Self Help Books: The 101 Best Personal Development Classics." From an 1,100 page "encyclopedia of success" to a 28-page speech that became a classic more than a hundred years ago, Vic identifies the publication dates of the classics, the major theme(s) of the book and then some solid reasons to add them to your reading list. Along the way he also shares valuable anecdotes on his personal lessons learned from these authors (some of whom have mentored him). This is quick and easy reading that takes the guesswork out of choosing the books to add to your library as well as helping you prioritize your reading.
