“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one."

These are 9 of my favorite books that i would recommend to anyone, i have learned a lot from these books and also enjoyed them. These are fictional and non fictional stories that provide you with unique and useful knowledge and inspiration or set you to think. This list is an un ordered list, each book is good in its own way and can hardly be compared with one another.


Achieving more by doing less is something Im personally always interested in. In this book the author Greg McKeown guides you through examples on how to apply a more selective criteria for what is essential to us. This is a must read & a sure re-read.

I was on the plane from NYC to Salt Lake City. I started reading the book the moment we took off and didnt put it down until I got forced to leave the plane. I finished it the same day. Hatching Twitter is an entertaining & dramatic story of Money, Power, Friendship and Betrayal.

This is one of the most important books which had such a high impact on my life. Everything we do is driven by habits - We're creatures of habits and mastering them is the true secret to happiness. This book explores how habits work and affect our lives.

This book written by Dale Carnegie is a classic. The title is cheesy but I read it already 3 times. It's a book everyone should read at least once. Ignore the title, or the fact that it's marketed as a self-help book, just get it and read it. (if you haven't already)

Another classic, but what I love about it is how simple and blunt it's written. The Alchemist seems to be loved by many people as everyone is able to interpret it in their own way. The story of the alchemist is simple but thought provoking. This book is about.

It's a timeless classic that I often ignored because of its cheesy title. The book was written in 1902 but its lessons about finances and how to acquire personal wealth still apply to today. It's the best advice about money I've ever read.

How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations and human rights; to trust money, books and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?

This might be the first fiction book on this recommendation page. I really enjoyed this story which plays in the near future where our world seems in just perfect conformity, only until the main character learns how complex and dark our world really is. This story makes you think.
