    From even a cursory glance around the forum, it seems that we are awash with threads asking what everyones favourite book is or recommendations of what they should read. The problem with having lots of these threads is that they inevitably lead to a lot of repetition, and many people won't want to be constantly be posting in them to give advice. As such, I'm creating this thread to act as a repository for all the little threads around. You can browse it to see all the books recommended before, or make a post asking for recommendations and someone will be happy to provide some examples.

    If you see any threads on this topic, please report them and I'll merge them with this.

    The autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is a famous autobiography and a good read.

    Watch my back by Geoff Thompson is another good book, you can download it for free if you sign up for the newsletter on his website (you can always unsubscribe immediately if you don't want the emails): http://www.geoffthompson.com/newslet...newsletter.asp

    Geoff use to work in factories and as a nightclub doorman before becoming a full time martial artist-becoming one of the best in the world. He's now a writer and film director.

    I look forward to more.

    Hoping to have a diverse and comprehensive list compiled by TSR users.
    It might be a good idea to have a 'self-help' section. I know a lot of people are sceptical and roll their eyes when they hear of self-help but there are some really great books out there.

    'How to win friends and influence people' by Dale Carnegie is a very famous book which has sold millions of copies. It really opened my eyes to mistakes I had made in the past when interacting with people. I know it sounds slightly sinister/manipulative by the title but it's not like that at all. Even Warren Buffett (a billionaire) endorses it:

    http://www.mycomeup.com/web/componen...warren+buffett (2nd video down)

    I read a lot of books on self-help/entrepreneurs and this book has been endorsed by 2 other millionaires I have read about.

    'Think and grow rich' by Napoleon Hill is another book I've read, one of the best.

    'The richest man in babylon' by George S Clason is another great book.

    Even though the books I have mentioned have sold millions of copies, I'm amazed that more people haven't heard of them or read them. Some of the advice is literally life-changing. It was actually Geoff Thompson that got me in to reading self-help stuff as he went from being an ordinary guy in the street to becoming really successful and he learnt a lot of his stuff from the books that I've mentioned and many more.

    I think that's enough for now. Also I think you need a Literary Fiction category for books that aren't classics and aren't in a specific genre.
