Chetan Vashisht Peak how to master almost anything is an amazing book. If you've not read any self help books, this one is a great start. It really sets you on the right path.

☝️ Jean-David Moisan Perhaps The Richest Man in Babylon. It's a book about finance, but it contains a lot of life lessons.

Feiss If I can't remember any, I guess I don't have a life changing book.. I do have many that I loved, that introduced me to a genre, or to the love of books..

🥝 Mr "The end of average". We've been trained to reduce people to a number (ACT, SAT, IQ, Above Average, Below Average) and it all falls apart when you take a deeper look. Your system will always fail to address outliers if you attempt to average everyone and everything. Everyone is an outlier in some way.

Dan Heath The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. I was stuck in a loop of negative behaviours exacerbated by depression and anxiety for years. Understanding that I could reprogram these little instruction sets and correct my behaviour gave me the drive to systematically rebuild my life.

⚪ Ghostis The Calvin and Hobbes Compendium by Watterson. It showed me that I didn't have to compromise or settle when making artistic objects.

🥝 Mr Wow, this runs deep. I think I read all of Calvin and Hobbes when I was young, it's stuck with me my entire life and informs much of my creative process. It's truly a work that can (and does) cover everything.

🔚 Bort Simpson 1984. Painted a plausible nightmare portrait of authoritarianism and thought control; is more relevant today than it's ever been.

Zero Edge Agreed but its funny seeing how both sides think the same thing of the other. :)

Zero Edge The Bible. Specifically: The Book Of Job -> Provided me with better wisdom and understanding.. gave me better understanding of God and how he works. Proverbs -> Provides wisdom on a daily basis. John -> The two most valuable commandments: (Put your trust in the higher power, love others as yourself) . Its the only book I can go back to daily and leave with overwhelming peace. Also taught me to find a new "power" in faith which I never could find with logic alone.

Dan Heath So I'm curious on many levels. Is faith for you a lifelong pursuit or something you've turned to at a point in life? Saying that faith offers something logic does not - how does that work for you? Is this an exclusive thing (i.e. faith OR logic) or do they back each other up? Many questions.

🤔 David 'As a Man Thinketh' by James Allen. I first read it in 2013 after some major life-events; it helped me realize that I am the captain of my ship and that I control the sails. I found it after first learning about Project Gutenberg; you can find versions there gutenberg.org/eboo... (and alternatively...https://www.thinketh.io/)
