There have been a handful of non-fiction books that revolutionized the way I looked at the world. (Technically a handful is 5 and there are 8 here, I’m so sorry.)

I am 100% sure that if these books had this big of an impact on me, some of you will feel the same. I listed them in the order that I read them, not necessarily in “best” or “worst”. But if I had to talk about their value I would say:

  • most enlightening content that makes you want to fly: The Power of Now

  • mot simple and profound advice that makes you chuckle: How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big

  • most “Holy Shit I am mind-blown” moments: Why Buddhism is True

  • most immediately applicable life-changing tactics to hack your relationships: How to Win Friends and Influence People

  • most easy-to-read and comforting advice from your grandpa on ending your suffering: The Four Agreements

  • most hope-inducing content when it comes to being successful: Outliers

  • most “oh that’s how it works” moments: Buddha’s Brain

  • most revolutionizing advice on how love really oughta be: Mastery of Love

I hope you guys find it useful. I hope it opens your eyes as much as it opened mine to the reality of our world and your power in it.

p.s. I linked the Amazon page for each book within the title! Prime is life.
