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.

Its Not What You Ve Got

Author : Wayne W. Dyer

Genre : Money

"You're Not What You've Got" addresses the topics of money and abundance, with the understanding that children's earliest thoughts and perceptions about money are those that will last throughout their lives. The concepts presented in this beautifully illustrated book include: Money does not define who you are; it doesn't matter what others have, and abundance comes in many forms. Unlike most books on this subject," You're Not What You've Got" is not a how-to manual on spending and saving for kids, but rather a positive, spiritual approach to the meaning of money.

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."

You’ve Got Tail by USA Today bestselling author Renee George is a laugh-out-loud cozy mystery. Kidnapping, murder, and a town full of people hiding the truth will keep Sunny Haddock busy as she tries to unravel the strange happenings in Peculiar, Missouri. Fall in love with a hilarious cast of characters in Book 1 of Peculiar Mysteries; a paranormal romantic comedy that will not only have you laughing...it will also melt your heart. Welcome to Peculiar, Missouri! Sunny Haddock, an animal-loving vegetarian psychic, is stoked to leave California behind to start a new life in the Ozark town of Peculiar with her best friend Chavvah Trimmel. She ups the moving date when Chav goes missing, and Sunny high tails it to the small town. What Sunny doesn’t realize is that she’s moving into a community of were-shifters, and they don’t want a human resident. Especially one dumb enough to arrive a couple of days before the full moon—the only night of the month shifters have to take their pure animal forms. When the gorgeous Babel Trimmel, Chav's younger brother, (along with the sheriff, the mayor, and some other nice folk) suggests Sunny haul her U-haul and butt back out of town, she’s undeterred. Her psychic abilities might be out-of-whack, and blood makes her faint, but she’s not a quitter. Besides, she's not about to go anywhere until she finds out what happened to Chavvah. But Sunny has more to deal with than unfriendly townsfolk...like disturbing killer visions and the dog-like animal no one else sees that seems to be stalking her every move. To make matters worse, she is finding Babel to be more irresistible than crack on a donut. Sunny needs to get her ability and her hormones under control if she wants to solve the mystery and save her best friend. “Move over Cesar Millan, Sunny’s in town, and this psychic makes house calls. Hilarious!” Dakota Cassidy, USA Today Bestselling author of the Accidental series.
