Book(s) that helped you to change your life
I have recently read two books that have really helped me in every possible way (health, lifestyle (money and hobbies), friends, and women).

1) How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Helped me secure an internship with an international Asset Management firm in Dubai, without a formal application. Great money. No taxes. Food and house paid for. Big thing for me considering I'm 20, still studying at a university in London.

2) Ways of the Superior Man by David Deida
This book helped me change the way I looks at myself, women, and my lifestyle. Started to improve my relationships with all the 3 girls I'm seeing (all are atleast 8). This also helped me bang a 40 year old hot Indian woman (7; married) earlier this year in London.

I would love to know about such books and success stories, from the 'bosses' on this forum in order to picture myself doing more awesome stuff and then finally do them!

Not sure if any one book changed my life, but there are a few which definitely changed my thinking. Politically/economically, anything by Thomas Sowell was what got me started. That man is a disregarded genius of the American black community. Finance wise, this book about Buffett and Soros changed the way I view investment decisions. Donald Trump's Art of the Deal was excellent, but avoid his very disappointing team-up with Robert Kiyosaki much later. In fact, avoid anything at all by Kiyosaki - the man is a charlatan.

Other classics like Think and Grow Rich, The Power of Positive Thinking, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, etc. are good standbys often co-opted by aggregators into speaking engagements, programs and blogs. Tony Robbins borrows almost all of his material from these and other actual experts in their fields, then packages them into his own slick version. Though he does usually give credit to his sources, there is very little original in Robbins's works.

The 48 Laws of Power is another good one, though I'm not sure it didn't teach me anything I did not already know by the time I read it.
