Top Five – Personal Development Books

Below I have compiled a list of all the Personal Development books I have read and would recommend you read if you like books of this genre.

I have my current TOP FIVE favorites, which will have Amazon links to each for easy purchase if you are interested in checking them out!

These are more of a slap in the face/ get off your a** approach to personal development because that style tends to resonate with me. If you’re the same, you will love these.
