    It may or may not be what you want to hear, but The Bible. Best of luck to you regardless of which book(s) you choose. :)

    Hey, definitely get that book if you feel it MAY help you. Words to live by, I still reference it if I am feeling down.

    Any of Dale Carnegie's books are genius.

    Any of Eckhart Tolle's books are mind-opening. A New Earth was my favourite. I actually enjoyed listening to him read it out loud in the car before I read the book. Extraordinary stuff!

    The best book I have ever read thus far in life would be Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil. The fact that he wrote it in the 1930's and it wasn't published until this century and the reasons why are pretty cool - the world makes more sense, and then you have a choice of where you want to play in it.

    I will second The Bible.

    But beyond that, how about:
    I Dare You by William Danforth (Founder of Ralston Purina)- "All the easy things have been done long ago. Now bring on the impossible!'

    Financial Peace by Dave Ramsey

    Anything by Robert Fulghum (All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten; Uh-Oh; It Was On Fire When I Lay Down On It; et al)

    Roberts Rules of Order - Almost all organizations say they run by Robert's Rules, but very few people actually know what they are. The incredible part is, it is really about making sure everyone who wants to speak is heard and the rights of everyone are protected.

    And the best advice I ever received:
    "Retire at the top of your game." - Dr. Richard Craig, Professor Emeritus of Horticultural Botany, Penn State University

    "Getting two degrees from the same school is intellectual incest! - a retired plant physiologist from Clemson.
