Unlike a lot of today’s business writers, Brooks didn’t boil his work down into pat how-to lessons or simplistic explanations for success.”

This is how the author sets off a riveting journey explaining the findings from his and his team’s half a decade of research in the conquest of how to make good companies great. Essentially, ‘Good to Great’ happens very rarely and it is because it is damn difficult.

Some companies have always been great, such as Coca-Cola. This book isn’t about this type of company. It’s about companies who were good for a long time and then somehow became great for a long time. To find those companies 1,435 companies were examined over a 40 year period. From this research, eleven great companies were found. And the question this book attempts to answer is how did these companies become great, and are those lessons repeatable?

10    Think Fast and Slow By Daniel Kahneman

Kahneman's book is a must-read for anyone interested in either human behavior or investing. He clearly shows that while we like to think of ourselves as rational in our decision making, the truth is we are subject to many biases. At least being aware of them will give you a better
chance of avoiding them, or at least making fewer of them.” ―Larry Swedroe, CBS News

“Daniel Kahneman demonstrates forcefully in his new book, Thinking, Fast and Slow, how easy it is for humans to swerve away from rationality.”
―Christopher Shea, The Washington Post

“An outstanding book, distinguished by beauty and clarity of detail, the precision of presentation and gentleness of manner. Its truths are open to all those whose System 2 is not completely defunct. I have hardly touched on its richness.” ―Galen Strawson, The Guardian

“Brilliant . . . It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of Daniel Kahneman's contribution to the understanding of the way we think and choose.
He stands among the giants, a weaver of the threads of Charles Darwin, Adam Smith, and Sigmund Freud. Arguably the most important psychologist in history, Kahneman has reshaped cognitive psychology, the analysis of rationality and reason, the understanding of risk and the study of happiness and well-being . . . A magisterial work, stunning in its ambition, infused with knowledge, laced with wisdom,
informed by modesty and deeply humane. If you can read only one book this year, read this one.” ―Janice Gross Stein, The Globe, and Mail

The Power of Now shows you that every minute you spend worrying about the future or regretting the past is a minute lost, because really all you have to live in is the present, the now, and gives you actionable strategies to start living every minute as it occurs.

It's no wonder that The Power of Now has sold over 3 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 35 foreign languages.
Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.

12    Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl

Some people are tempted to think of the majority of psychotherapists as snake oil salesmen. After all, where do their theories come from?
Don’t they just make them up in their heads and then interpret all of their patients’ conditions using the framework they invented?

If that’s how you think, let me assure you that Viktor Frankl is a different kind of psychotherapist. For one, he’s a Holocaust survivor,
and the life lessons and insights he shares in this book are ones he personally wrested from the jaws of extreme suffering beyond the likes of which
most people ever experience in their lives.

Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl is among the most influential works of psychiatric literature since Freud. The book begins with a lengthy,
austere, and deeply moving personal essay about Frankl's imprisonment in Auschwitz and other concentration camps for five years, and his struggle during this time to find reasons to live.

The second part of the book, called "Logotherapy in a Nutshell," describes the psychotherapeutic method that
Frankl pioneered as a result of his experiences in the concentration camps. Freud believed that sexual instincts and urges were the driving force of humanity's life; Frankl, by contrast, believes that man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose.

Frankl's logotherapy, therefore,
is much more compatible with Western religions than Freudian psychotherapy. This is a fascinating, sophisticated, and very human book. At times,
Frankl's personal and professional discourses merge into a style of tremendous power. "Our generation is realistic, for we have come to know the man as he really is,"

Frankl writes. "After all, man is that being who invented the gas chambers of Auschwitz; however, he is also that being who entered
those gas chambers upright, with the Lord's Prayer or the Shema Yisrael on his lips."

13 The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

DescriptionThe Alchemist is a novel by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho that was first published in 1988. Originally written in Portuguese,
it became a widely translated international bestseller. The Alchemist book has sold over 3 million copies worldwide.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly
treasure as extravagant as any ever found.

The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening
to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.
