  1. Hi, being an avid reader, I would love to hear what others have in their Top Ten list, and brief commentary on each book is welcome as well. Note that the first two books changed my life, and I read them over and over. Think about those books where you reach the end and go Wow.

    Here's my list:

    1. A Guide to Rational Living by Powers, Ellis, and Harper

    2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

    3. Instant Replay: The Green Bay Diary of Jerry Kramer

    4. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

    5. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey

    6. Market Wizards by Jack D. Schwager

    7. Iron John: A Book About Men by Robert Bly

    8. The Odyssey by Homer

  2. Can't believe you have Iron John in there. Ekk.

    Tao of Pooh.
  3. LOL

    Seriously though, Iron John? I read that book about 10 years ago..and at the time I thought it was good. But it's really just dudes sitting around banging on drums.

    Now, Toa of Pooh, on the other hand. That's quality literature.
  5. "The sword of truth" series by Terry Goodkind.
    This is a nine(9) book series in a Fantasy style that has an underlying message of objectivest philosophy.
    Very entertaining if you like hero's and heroins and sword play.
