Paul Graham (Hackers and Painters) has mentioned that an important read for preparing to start your own business is How To Win Friends and Influence People. I'm happy to report that this gem from 1936 is timeless and truly life-changing. I believe Paul's reasons for the recommendation include: the importance of charisma, general rounding out one's personality, and finding ways to get responsiveness from people by making them feel good.

CARRIN decided that he could trace his present mood to Miller's suicide last week. But the knowledge didn't help him get rid of the vague, formless fear in the back of his mind. It was foolish. Miller's suicide didn't concern him. But why had that fat, jovial man killed himself? Miller had had everything to live for—wife, kids, good job, and all the marvelous luxuries of the age. Why had he done it? "Good morning, dear," Carrin's wife said as he sat down at the breakfast table. "Morning, honey. Morning, Billy." His son grunted something. You just couldn't tell about...
In the great kingdom of living nature, man is the only animal that seeks to poison or destroy his own instincts,
to turn topsy-turvy the laws of his being, and to make himself as unlike, as possible, that which he was
obviously designed to be.
No satisfactory solution of this extraordinary propensity has been given, short of a reference to that--
"first disobedience and the fruit Of that forbidden tree, whose mortal taste Brought death into the world and
all our wo, With loss of E

Hard to believe anything other than luck and maybe fate, never mind a book, can make someone fall in love with you, but oddly enough, Leil Lowndes seems to offer the advice that can do just that in How to Make Anyone Fall in Love with You. The sensation of falling in love comes from a chemical secreted by the nervous system, phenylethylamine (or PEA, as Lowndes calls it, as in "Scientists tell us only PEA-brained people fall in Love"), and the trick is to trigger the manufacture of PEA in your potential love partner, giving him or her the...
A week after our daughter Lauren was born, my wife Bonnie and I were completely exhausted. Each night Lauren kept waking us. Bonnie had been torn in the delivery and was taking painkillers. she could barely walk. After five days of staying home to help, I went back to work. She seemed to be getting better.
Does grammar bother you? Does it inspire ﬁrst boredom, then fear? Since the virtual removal forty years ago of formal grammar teaching from our schools’ standard curriculum, such negative responses have increasingly characterised students and professionals alike. As this lively and accessible book sets out to prove, that is both unfortunate and unnecessary. Not only is grammar an enabling servant rather than a tyrannical set of absolute rules: it can also be fun.
The original book, income and wealth, published by Iwanami Shoten Japanese in 1991. Widely welcomed as a new classical distribution theory, it won the prestigious award Shimbun Nikkei Economic Book the same year.

You Are Being Lied To. It takes some nerve to give a book that title, eh? It came to me very early in the process, when this collection was just a germ of an idea. I did pause to wonder if it was too audacious; after all, I didn’t want my mouth to write a check that my butt couldn’t cash. But after spending several intense months assembling this book, I’m more convinced than ever that the title is the proper one. We are being lied to.
Iwas once asked to give advice to a reader of Self magazine who I will
call Mia. Mia is in her mid-20s, working for a social service agency in
a major city, earning $42,000 a year. Her ultimate financial goal is to be
a millionaire. “I want to live the way I want to live and never worry
about making ends meet,” she says. Mia isn’t thrilled with her job; she
hopes to quit and start a public relations firm.
After years of working with entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, and institutions, I realized that most people have one or more habits that prevent them from being wealthy. For each habit I have created and tested a counter-habit, hoping that this can help individuals live happier. This is a manifesto for individual people, written to address one person at a time. Why do I call them habits? Habits are transparent

They had fearful rows. She became so jealous, even of her own children, that she grabbed a gun and shot a hole in her daughter's photograph. She even rolled on the floor with an opium bottle held to her lips, and threatened to commit suicide, while the children huddled in a corner of the room and screamed with terror. And what did Tolstoy do? Well, I don't blame the man for up and smashing the furniturehe had good provocation. But he did far worse than that. He kept a private diary! Yes, a diary, in which he placed all...
Writing a book like this requires a number of key ingredients. One is the
body of sophisticated and exciting research on reproductive biology and
health from which I have drawn extensively. A quick glance at the list of
references cited provides a good compilation of the work that I believe has
the most to offer as we try to understand challenges to women’s health that
we are facing and will continue to face as global resources constrict,
population expands, and more and more people strive for the lifestyles of
the ‘‘health-rich’’ nations.

My wife and I own a shop in Los Angeles called dr. tea’s. Every day,
people come in just to enjoy a cup or two of tea, maybe read a book, do
some work in a peaceful atmosphere, or chat with friends. Sometimes they
see me in my bright orange lab coat or apron and we start to talk. And they
tell me their troubles. Now, I’m not a doctor, or a shrink, or even a bartender,
but people tend to speak to me about what’s going on in their lives.
Many have a vague notion that tea is...
