There are a lot of posts about books in this forum. My question today is a little different. Please forgive me for gushing in advance..
When one of us asks about mindset, high-performance, negotiation, prospecting, wealth-creation, investing, etc... we all seem to have answers for them. There appears to be a common set of non-fiction books that appear repeatedly. Attached is a screenshot of my audible library. There are plenty of titles here I'm sure most of you have read, or at least recognize, and plenty more that wouldn't fit in the frame that are similar in nature.
But, I recently picked up Atlas Shrugged. Just a fictional novel, but I'm finding myself learning more from this book than anything I've ready in years. This particular edition is something like 11 hours of audio on Audible. I'm hooked on this book like crack-cocaine. I can't get enough. I cannot stop listening. I had a 7AM on Friday morning with one of our biggest clients and I was lying in bed listening on Thursday night until almost 1:30. I finally had to force myself to turn it off. I'm on track to finish it in under 4 days - definitely before the end of today, and I'm already getting that feeling of dread that when it's over I won't have anything as good to read.
I plan on reading all of Ayn Rand's content, but that brings me to my question for all of you. Fiction, or non-fiction I don't mind either. But can you recommend books that profoundly moved and inspired you? Books that you 'got more out of' than anything that came before or after.
For those of you that haven't read it, I don't have the words to recommend this book enough. I don't mean to overhype it, I think media resonates differently with different people so YMMV, but this book has been life changing for me. Its the best book I've read in at least 4 years, and I never want it to end.
I hope to hear your suggestions...
