Well at least I read 1 of them --The Alchemist. I didn't know that Will Smith recommended it as 1 of his fave books.

I like the parable-like book, very insightful in its simplicity.

Hi Diggy

Thanks for the recommendations.

I've read The Alchemist and Psychocybernetics, and they were fantastic reads for different reasons.

Always wanted to read the Power of Now. Also heard about Tim Ferriss and Seth Godin. Maybe I'll pass by the bookstore this weekend.

I also really enjoyed The Alchemist - very simple read with a powerful message we can all learn from

I noticed the blog post has been changed to "12 Great Books Everyone Should read at least once", would you mind to review two more books which I found is timeless classic?
1. The Message of A Master
2. The Instant Millionaire
These two together with "The Alchemist" is my all time favorite.

I just recently heard of Paolo Coelho - and actually wound up using one of his beautiful quotes in a personal goal planning guide I just finished (about 2 weeks ago!) - the quote was from his The Manual of the Warrior of Light:

“The river adapts itself to whatever route proves possible, but the river never forgets its on objective: the sea. So fragile at its source, it gradually gathers the strength of the other rivers it encounters. And, after a certain point, its power is absolute.”

I really enjoyed Tolle's Power of Now - but even more, I enjoyed his later book, A New Earth - Awakening to Your Life's Purpose.

I think that all of us could go on and on about what some of our favorites are! I know I could!

Wow... There are just SO MANY wonderful books out there. Smiley

'The Power of Now' is definitely in my top ten and 'Biology Beyond Belief' or 'Molecules of Emotion' which look at the relationship between mind/thought and body
