In this post, I'm sharing my ultimate list of books on the topics of leadership, personal improvement, goals, finance, purpose, and programming.
The book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one which makes you think.
~ H. Lee
As it usually goes with people that read, you're often asked to share "a few good books".
I already wrote about the top 5 that are, IMHO, worth re-reading every once in a while, in the post Too many books, not enough time.
However, this time I'm sharing my ultimate list of books on the topics of leadership, personal improvement, goals, finance, purpose, and programming. Each and every one of these books helped me move the needle a bit forward, so I hope they'll do the same for you.
I didn't list any fictional books here, but if you want one, then look no further than The Name of The Wind.
