The Richest Man In Babylon

The Richest Man in Babylon By George S. Clason

Although this book was written in the 1920’s many of the “parables” referred to in the test are still highly relevant today. Originally it was written as a series of short informational style pamphlets and in 1927 was collated into a book.

I’m not a big fan of books written like this normally but if you can put this aside then there are some extremely valuable lessons to be learned.

The Success Principles: How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be by Jack Canfield

Jack Canfield is probably better known to most as the co-creator of the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series of books. I have had this book about 6 years now and must have read it at least half a dozen times and is a favourite holiday read along with Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Think & Grow Rich [The Original Version, Restored and Revised] by Napoleon Hill

This book has to be the ‘ ‘Classic of All Classics’ and probably one of the greatest books on self improvement and personal development ever written. Probably one of the most famous quotes from the author is “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.”
