Great Books

Here is where you will find some of the most helpful books you may ever read, in your life.

Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning” is simply outstanding in the information it covers. The first part of the book covers his time in German concentration camps during WWII. The second portion of the book is where the most welcoming information is at. If you have not read this book yet, I highly suggest it! It will set your mind on a new course of understanding how we might better deal with some of our own problems.

 

 

 

Dr. Pierce J. Howard’s The Owner’s Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind-Brain Research 3rd Edition is one book you’ll certainly appreciate having. If you would like to know how laughter, eating, sleeping, thinking, exercise, illness, injury, and love affect the brain, then THIS is the book to have! This is one of the most fascinating reads, and there is a LOT of information in it. Everything from chocolate to the ways of learning are covered in this book. I cannot say enough about it!

 

 

 

Susan Cain’s book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking is every introvert’s answer for learning how to cope in today’s fast-paced and noisy world. She has done some wonderful research on how introverts play their part in the world. I am an introvert, and this book was a cool and refreshing drink, allowing me to understand that there is more to me than meets the eye of the extroverted world. If you’re an introvert, you’ll have that same refreshing drink!

 

 

 

Kathryn Schulz’s book, Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error is an eye-opening experience. As an example, she asks, “What does it feel like to be wrong?” Think about that for a moment. What does it feel like to be wrong? Terrible? Embarrassing? Upsetting? Well, these are the things we feel when we realize that we are wrong. She goes on to say that how we feel when we are wrong is quite often exactly how we feel when we are right. She goes on from there to cover more thoughts about what it’s like when we’re wrong… whether we know it, or not.

 

 

 
Anytime you pick up Sir Ken Robinson’s book Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life you’ll want to have something to write with and on. Every chapter will bring about moments of reflection… time to pause and think. You will want to take that time to write down some thoughts to the questions and exercises he brings to mind. Prepare to take a most wonderful journey! A journey into self.

 

 

 

Have you ever wondered about some of the differences between men and women? To find some great insight into that area of life, you can make this your first stop. If you would enjoy a fast, funny, enjoyable read that has much truth behind it, then this is the book you’ll want to read! If your a guy, have a close woman friend read it, and see if she doesn’t agree about how truthful it is. The Peases have a winning book with Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps.
