"How to influence people and make friends" by Dale Carnegie is an amazing helpful book for anyone in sales or consulting.

Hey everyone im bit of a reading addict. So I tend to read several books simultaneously.

Anyhow, just finished reading "Everything that happens to me is good" by Geoff Thompson

Also really want to finish "World on the Edge" by Lester Brown and "Why Popcorn Costs So Much at the Movies"by Richard McKenzie

10 Minutes ago I started reading 77 Mental Toughness Secrets by Steve Siebold. It seems to be an awesome book, im reading it to try and get the courage to leave my 9-5 and start my own business.

Based on the books some of you have posted I am going to buy Don't Sweat The Small Stuff...and it's all small stuff - Richard Carlson and How Will You Measure Your Life? By Clayton M. Christensen

fictions:

1. Conflict of Interest - Adam Mitzner (highly recommend it; what's a greater treat to yourself at the end of the day, or during your lunch break, than an exotic escape weaved by this first time lawyer writer's fluid writing?)

2. Plugged- Eoin Colfer (filled with endless, Seinfield-esque banter lines)

3. 2030 - Albert Brooks (unique perspective on health care reform, ageism, and US-China dynamics embodied in a science fiction)

4. A Free Life - Ha Jin (highly recommend it; some kind of award winner: English is this Chinese writer's second language, yet he managed to write this book first in English, published it, then translated it to Chinese, published it again)

A couple others already mentioned it, but "How to win friends and influence people" by Carnegie should really be required reading, especially for anyone that feels like they argue more than they should.

A good new one is Jimmie Johnson's coffee table book called "On the road." It's pics and stories of last year's ups and downs during the NASCAR Chase races.

Default What are you reading: Book Edition

Currently reading "It" by Stephen King

Previous book was "Theodore Rex" by Edmund Morris. Next up will be "Big Pharma" by Ben Goldacre. Always maintain a hopper of 2 to 3 books ready to be read and have a nice "cart" awaiting at Amazon.

I also read many periodicals weekly and at least one newspaper daily. Despite the many electronics at my disposal, no electronic readers for me! I love books made of paper, though many are traded and thus circulated.

(note to moderators: Didn't see a pre-existing thread, so feel free to merge if overlooked!)

Recently finished Brendan Brasier's "Thrive" and Amy Bloom's "A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You" this past week.

Currently reading The Dalai Lama's "In My Own Words" and Dan Brown's "Inferno" at the top of the book pile, with some classics underneath including Annie Proulx "The Shipping News" and Arundhati Roy's "The God of Small Things."

I agree, The Kite Runner is the best book I've ever read. Another one I like is The Five People You Meet in Heaven.
