Tim Ferriss is known for trying just about anything, and when he does, he goes all in. In this book, his focus is on outsourcing the unessential so that we can focus on what matters most to our success. If you want to learn to prioritize, delegate more effectively, say “no” and outsource, this book might be for you.

The Millionaire Mind
This book dives deeper into the differences between the way a millionaire thinks than does an earlier book of Stanley's titled "The Millionaire Next Door". It drives home the point that for much of what we achieve, perception is reality and that what we think about and focus on we tend to bring about in our lives.

Thinking, Fast and Slow
There is no question that this book forever alters the way a reader thinks about how we think. Kahneman's important work uncovers the many ways in which our powerful brain serves us and hinder our ability to make "logical" determinations, all at the same time. It leaves us with a mixture of awe and bewilderment, with each chapter delivering insights of sufficient significance as to merit a standalone book.

Jen Sincero's style is irreverent and she's not scared of making it personal (which means it's not everyone's cup of tea). This book is a follow up to her book "You Are A Badass", a self-help type book for those among us who struggle with self-confidence when it comes to getting what we want in life. And who doesn't want to get better at managing their money?

The Alchemist
This book delivers inspiration through storytelling. It follows a sheep herder on his quest to find answers to what seems beyond anyone's grasp. Along the way, the story entertains and makes us reflect on our own path and what it is that we're trying to understand about ourselves and the world around us.

No small task but he gets it done in fun and interesting ways.
Simplify
This book brings home the "whys" behind the pursuit of minimalism. The pursuit isn't for minimalism's sake. It's the pursuit of a better life, one in which we have more time, more attention, more awareness. It's a way to be fully present, unpreoccupied by so much that doesn't matter.
Retailers know why, when and how we buy. They track our behavior online and in their stores to find out the best way to get us to buy, buy more and buy more often. They know what makes us tick and this book helps us understand what influences our buying behavior.
