The book’s title might be abrasive but behind the cover is a compassionate, hilarious exploration of the human psyche in an era dominated by the ethos of unconditional self-improvement, in which many of us feel we’ll never be good enough.

If you’re after inspiration into how everyday people can make it in this world and how it’s never too late to change your life thanks to the internet, take a look at Gary Vaynerchuck’s Crushing It.

A book that inspired me a lot in my young adult days was 7 habits of highly effective people.

It’s like sitting through a seminar with the author and improving every single second.

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

My eldest son is 17 and has recently finished this book. At first, I didn’t think it would appeal to him since he prefers sci-fi stuff, but I was pleasantly surprised. The novel offers an in-depth contemplation of the Holocaust and simultaneously exposes the reader to the atrocities of war and how love and friendship can overcome a difficult past.

The 6 Most Important Decisions You’ll Ever Make by Sean Covey

This product was recommended by Vikram Tarugu from Life Insurance Star

I totally love this book. Those kinds of self-help books are what we really need now, because we all believe we ‘re the best people out there — but in fact, we ‘re never fine. We human beings are inherently flawed, so as much as we strive to build on these flaws, we’re getting stronger than we were when we started. Well, that being said, this book is a great guide to helping us become a more suitable teenager. It’s not a lecture book — no one needs to purchase another nagging computer, we get plenty of that from our parents at school. Yet Sean Covey, the founder of several other self-help books, creates a style that is advice-like, not lecture-like. He doesn’t only say you that you’re not allowed to have sex, but ways to treat it and respond to it. (But frankly, obey the principle of no sex) I will suggest this book to someone eager to try to become a better individual and offer importance to their lives.
