    You’ve published a similar list in the past. I think it’s only appropriate to include your own books on this list, as they are surely among your favorites, and would also be considered when someone takes this list to go shopping!

      Tks Solomon. That was very nice of you to say. I do love my books more than almost every book on my list, other than How to Win Friends and The Subconscious Mind.

    Tom, thanks for your posts. Check out the book of Sirach in the Old Testament. Seriously. High level self help, ancient Hebrew wisdom.
