Great Books
These are some of my favorite books. All of them are treasure chests. Most of them entered my life as gifts, and came exactly when I needed their contents the most. The "perfect" has been arriving in my life at the "perfect" time for so long now that I'm inclined to think they're being sent.

Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times
by: Thomas Hauser
A hard to put down book about a great, great man. If you don't know why Ali was great outside of boxing, you don't know why he was "The Greatest." Exhilarating.

The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dreams
by: Paulo Coelho
This little book is pure magic. It enters your life by magic and it teaches you about magic. For many years, my true favorite. Read this little fable and seek your treasure.

The Way of the Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Women, Work, and Sexual Desire
by: David Deida
The book that helped me understand how I wanted to define myself as a man. I can't believe this society so overlooks the job of teaching guys how to be men. Deida sets the bar as high as it can probably get, but then again, that's precisely why I think this book is so good.

How To Win Friends & Influence People
by: Dale Carnegie
Cheesy title - sincerely magic book. May it be taught to children and adults everywhere so that we all enjoy one another's company so much more.

Dear Lover
by: David Deida
Okay, this book was written for women, but I've read a lot of relationship books and I think this is a must read for any man serious about knowing how to reach the heart of woman. David Deida defines my ideal of relationship like no other.

The Heart's Code
by: Paul Pearsall
There's a new field (about 10 years old) of research into the energy fields of the heart. It's called energy-cardiology. It's proving to be fascinating (at least by me) and perhaps relevant to the old addage, "Follow your heart." What leads your life - your heart or your mind?

Spiritual Parenting
by: Hugh & Gayle Prather
I haven't found one book that seems to serve as the only book you need to read to understand great parenting, but this one's pretty special. They recommend love, compassion and total respect for our child's identity. And it sounds like they're very great parents.

Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue
by: Neale Donald Walsch
I'm not going to say a lot about this book and I don't know if the author actually spoke to God. But I do know it blew my mind. Thank you Steve for the gift!
Buy
Spiritual Economics: The Principles and Process of True Prosperity
by: Eric Butterworth
Perhaps this is my new favorite book of all-time. Perhaps. My spirit shifted after reading it. Elevated!
Buy
The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment
by: Maria Nemeth
If you need to get your finances in order, I recommend this book over all those drab money management books that ignore spirituality. But this book makes my list because I found it to be a great course in becoming more personally effective with your life and ambitions. Maria's far more than a money-coach, she's a life coach.
