A dear friend asked me to create a list of recommended current books to read. I loved doing it. He looked at that list and said he hadn’t read any of them, and had only heard of one of them. With that in mind, I thought you might like to see the list. Here you go…

Total Recall by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Incredibly terrific. It’s “Fantastic!”


The Walk by Philippe Petit. Riveting. Unique. Made me hyperventilate.


I, Mammal by Loretta Breuning. Enlightening. Read all of her books.


The Elements of Eloquence by Mark Forsyth. Fun, funny, flippant. It will spin your writing into a spell generator. (“Spell” as in “I’ll put a spell on you!”)


The Book of est by Luke Rhinehart. Hypnotic. Loved it so much I published it.  🙂


Muscle: Confessions of an Unlikely Bodybuilder by Samuel Wilson Fussell. Wise, well written and deeply revealing.


Making the American Body by Jonathan Black. Entertaining.


Mark Twain: Man in White by Michael Shelden. Love Twain.


The Shack by William Young. Novel.


Rejection Proof by Jia Jiang. Hilarious and empowering.


The Power of Neuroplasticity by Shad Helmstetter. Simple yet beautiful.


Lincoln: Biography of a Writer by Fred Kaplan. Love Lincoln.


Thomas Jefferson: Art of Power by Jon Meacham. Fascinating.


Bill Veeck by Paul Dickson. The Barnum of baseball.


Chronicles by Bob Dylan. Reads like a folk song with Dylan style.


The Most Contented Man by Joseph J. Vitale. My Dad. 🙂


Stuntman! By Hal Needham. Lively read.


The Einstein of Money by Joe Carlen. Insightful.


Not Impossible by Mick Ebeling. Inspiring.


The Power of Impossible Thinking by Yoram and Cook. Life changing.


The Spiritual Journey of Joseph L. Greenstein by Ed Spielman. Astonishing.


And any book by Joe Vitale... 🙂

Ao Akua,

    To me one of the beast reads is Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. Inspiring, uplifting and really makes you stop and think for a while. I can only recommend it to everyone 🙂

    By the way, let me also recommend you my blog: http://loahelpforyou.blogspot.hu/
    which has started this year, so there are not too many posts yet, but I’d love to share my thoughts and ideas with the world, so go ahead 🙂
