There's nothing better than a book you can't put down—or better yet, a book you'll never forget. This book puts the power of transformational reading into your hands. Jack Canfield, cocreator of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul® series, and self-actualization pioneer Gay Hendricks have invited notable people to share personal stories of books that changed their lives. What book shaped their outlook and habits? Helped them navigate rough seas? Spurred them to satisfaction and success? The contributors include Dave Barry, Stephen Covey, Malachy McCourt, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Mark Victor Hansen, John Gray, Christiane Northrup, Bernie Siegel, Craig Newmark, Michael E. Gerber, Lou Holtz, and Pat Williams, to name just a few. Their richly varied stories are poignant, energizing, and entertaining.Author and actor Malachy McCourt tells how a tattered biography of Gandhi, stumbled on in his youth, offered a shining example of true humility—and planted the seeds that would help support his sobriety decades later. Bestselling author and physician Bernie Siegel, M.D., tells how William Saroyan's The Human Comedy helped him realize that, in order to successfully treat his patients with life-threatening illnesses, "I had to help them live—not just prevent them from dying." Actress Catherine Oxenberg reveals how, at a life crossroads and struggling with bulimia, a book taught her the transforming difference one person could make in the life of another—and why that person for her was Richard Burton. Rafe Esquith, the award-winning teacher whose inner-city students have performed Shakespeare all over the world, recounts his deep self-doubt in the midst of his success—and how reading To Kill a Mockingbird strengthened him to continue teaching. Beloved librarian and bestselling author Nancy Pearl writes how, at age ten, Robert Heinlein's science fiction book Space Cadet impressed on her the meaning of personal integrity and gave her a vision of world peace she'd never imagined possible. Two years later, she marched in her first civil rights demonstration and learned that there's always a way to make "a small contribution to intergalactic harmony." If you're looking for insight and illumination—or simply for that next great book to read—You've Got to Read This Book! has treasures in store for you.

Explore my refreshing, unique insight on challenges and opportunities facing younger generations of adults. Inquisitive since childhood, I have spent over 20 years asking all the tough questions about life. You will find simple, revolutionary answers in plain English to various questions about hard work, temptation, making (and sticking with) the right choice from endless options, building your confidence and self worth, the real difference between the CEO and rank-and-file employee, and starting a business as you relive my life experiences with me.I also discuss how to decide whether you should stick with your job or take the plunge and follow your passion or fulfill your purpose before retirement age.Furthermore, I deconstructed how I accidentally stumbled upon my major purpose in life, beyond the likes of working hard, getting rich, and raising a family. I broke it down into 3 ridiculously simple steps to find your higher calling, passion, or purpose and 3 to fulfill them. I later compared them against the lives and actions of many great people throughout history and have found them to be accurate. Now, for some powerful excerpts:On Finding Your Higher Purpose in Life:"First, know thyself. Hidden assets remain hidden and unused in the absence of light. Chains that remain unacknowledged remain uncut. Take a cold, hard look at you, the real you, all of you. Your best and worst attributes and everything in between. Leave no stone unturned. Second, think about what you like and are good at. Third, what problem or pressing need in the community, nation, or world strikes a chord deep within you? These three things, together, will help you create your definite major purpose in life. Key word: create. Waiting leaves millions, if not billions, in park. Don't worry about creating the wrong purpose. Any purpose based on helping people without hurting others is a right choice."On Fulfilling Your Higher Purpose:"Require yourself to accomplish it, and to do so in a legal, honest, ethical manner.Take the first step without a clear-cut path and without knowing how long it will take.Press on, no matter how much pain or discomfort you experience and without regard for the risk of life and limb."On the Real Difference Between the CEO and Rank-and-File Employee:"'Why does the CEO make $40 million a year with a high school diploma, the VP of Operations make $100,000 with an MBA and a doctorate in psychology, and the janitor earn $21,000 with a high school diploma?' The CEO is terrified of cleaning bathrooms, but is willing to lead others, be the captain of the ship, and be the face of a large company for better or worse. The janitor, conversely, is terrified of leading others, being the captain of the ship, and the face of a large company for better or worse, but is willing to clean bathrooms."On My Unique Insight as to Why Teens Rebel:"The psychological and belief system shakeups at this point in a person's life seem automatic. Many of us just attribute it to emotional and hormonal changes and 'just stuff a teen goes through and eventually grows out of.' In my opinion, however, it's as if we human beings are designed to have these shakeups so that we may see things in a different light and advance the race forward. While prolonged rebellion in the wrong direction is never a good thing, a teen who do not rebel at all may be kicking the cans of frustration, confusion, and crisis into mid life."On Wishing for Someone Else's Natural Talents and Abilities:"Don't wish for Carnegie's talents [ability to make connections, judge people]; examine your own. Many things you view as your weaknesses are actually talents being used improperly. For example, [ADD], in my opinion (as a layperson), is disorganized passion, vigor, and massive creative energy, surfacing as an inability to listen, be quiet, sit still, or focus on what someone else wants you to focus on."

Stephen Mansfield, the acclaimed New York Times best-selling author, has highlighted the growing popularity of Mormonism—a belief system with cultic roots—and the implications of its critical rise. Mormons are moving into the spotlight in pop culture, politics, sports, and entertainment via presidential candidates like Romney and Huntsman, media personality Glenn Beck, mega-bestselling Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, and The Book of Mormon, the hottest show on Broadway. Mormonism was once a renegade cult at war with the U.S. Army in the 1800s, but it has now emerged as not only the fastest-growing religion, but as a high-impact mainstream cultural influence.
