@james_clear @dzyngiri Ditto on this one, it's really good, no-nonsense book on how to improve your life. No chapters on "believing hard enough" or anything like that, just straight to the point advice.

Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind by Shunryu Suzuki. I stumbled across him while reading the biography of Steve Jobs :)

I'd say a wonderful one is Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl. It's about a holocaust survivor and his experiences in a concentration camp. Some great quotes from it: “Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'.” “Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue.” “I recommend that the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast be supplemented by a Statue of Responsiblity on the West Coast.”

"Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman. It shows that we are not as smart and reasoned as we think we are.
