by Timothy Ferriss
This was one of the first ever self-development books I read in my life. It surely has transformed my thinking and my views on life. I must say, for this particular one, I preferred the hard copy book over the audiobook. It’s got some great tools and exercises to help you redefine your life and to go outside your comfort zone and push your limits. It’s definitely at the top of my personal favourites.

Beautifully narrated and creatively brought to life, this audio book is both, informative and entertaining. The information herein will be life-changing if one can grasp the essence of it. I have gifted this book to many people and listen to it again every few months to remind myself about the great lessons in it. Highly recommend this version of the book, as it’s easy to listen to in about an hour without losing its essence (the original version of The Richest Man in Babylon goes for a few hours).

by Dr. Joe Dispenza
During a time where I could barely get out of bed in the morning, this book has helped me to redefine my purpose and given me new motivation. It teaches why we feel certain emotions, the bio-chemical processes behind the reason for why we subconsciously decide to put ourselves into a negative state and how to break this crushing habit of self-sabotage and depression. This is a book I would recommend to everyone, as it deals with the underlying thought processes and bevaviours that determine our emotional state, and ultimately our actions.

by Stephen R. Covey
Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is one of those books that you can read again and again, and each time learn new things you didn’t pick up previously. This book is full of incredible life lessons that are guaranteed to enrich your personal relationships, in business and personal life. I have read this book four times and will be reading it many more. Highly recommended. This version of the book is a condensed one and also includes the sequel by the same author, The 8th Habit.

Covey’s best-selling business books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, read by Dr. Covey himself. We’ve condensed the content of two entire books into just three hours of audio, but you’ll still enjoy Dr. Covey’s lessons on powerful personal change and how to incorporate his ideas into your life to fulfill your ultimate potential.
