Books I Love

I have not written my own books (yet :0), so here are some of my favourites written by others.  I hope they inspire and galvanize you, as they did me!

By the way, a bit about the books I love.  With Up Until Now, my desire is to empower as many people as possible.  For this reason, simplicity in books appeals to me.  I like concepts that are both powerful and easy to grasp at the same time.  Ideas that cause us to stop, step back and re-see what is in front of us in enlightening new ways.  I also believe in the power of storytelling and metaphors to bring home ideas.  Storytelling has, after all, been used for centuries to pass on wisdom.  Finally, I like books that we can apply right away.

There is a wonderful saying that “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”.  I hope that there might be something here that holds the learning you seek now.

BTW, if you know of a great read that you think would be a fit here, I would love to hear about it!
