A Reading List For A Better You

Feb 6, 2016

Books are critical to our growth. Most great people are great readers. At the end of the day the books we read end up making us who we become. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:

I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.

Our quest for a better self is a perennial endeavor and a great book is an incredible companion while we are on our journey to make a better self.

Here are few books that might help you to become a better you.
