So I'm in my early 20's and have no job nor do I engage in formal study. Sure its easy leaching off my dad and I get a comfortable amount of money from him and doing odd jobs he finds me like mowing people's lawn. I think its time I actually got a life - it was my new year's resolution after all. Theres more self improvement books than I care to know, but filtering out the good from the rest is another story. Theres a lot of smart and successful young people on this forum so I figure this is a good place to ask. Books I have read - How to win friends and Influence people - What every BODY is saying - An ex FBI agent's guide to speed reading people Books I am currently reading - The enterpreter's guide to getting your shit together - Triple your reading speed <- This one is REALLY challenging to me - The memory book: The classic guide to improving your memory at work school and play - The charisma myth - How to instantly connect with anyone So if you have any book recommendations or other tips in general please leave a comment.
