    Just wondering. Are there any really practical or really inspirational books that you personally have found helpful?

    There are three.

    1) Think and Grow Rich....I still have my original copy, which I signed and dated upon completion in 1970.

    2) Psycho-cybernetics...I still have my original copy of this book, which I finished in 1969. It is about worn out.

    3) The Richest Man in Babylon...This book came to me a bit later in my career. I believe the copy in my book case is the only one I have ever owned.

    I say there are three objectives which must be mastered by anyone in any field who wishes to call himself successful:
    You must learn to listen.
    You must learn to speak in public.
    You must learn to handle money.

    When my grandson graduates from high school and sets off to college (he will go on scholarship) he will receive his copy of each of those three books.

    I dream of the day a chicken can cross the road without it's motives being questioned.

    Back in the days when Mr. ABC was working, books by Wes Roberts were widely touted and read by many.

    Overview from Barnes & Noble site:

    Wess Roberts's runaway 1989 bestseller, Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, took the publishing and business worlds by storm. In boardrooms across America, CEOs and managers praised the book's concise, straightforward wisdom, and made it their business bible.

    >snip<

    In Victory Secrets, he applies Attila's wisdom and lessons to the problems of leadership in organizations. If Leadership Secrets helped form the soldiers, Victory Secrets serves as the battle plan for the army itself. Again relying on Attila's pithy maxims, Roberts shows not only how to establish successful management within an organization, but how to lead an entrepreneurial team (the Huns) against a giant, entrenched competitor (the Romans). Victory Secrets is packed with provocative and timely "Attilaisms" on topics ranging from "Cultivating Allies" to "Practical Dreaming" and "Dodging Arrows."
    As enjoyable as it is insightful and instructive, Victory Secrets of Attila the Hun, like its now classic predecessor, is essential reading for managers and leaders everywhere.
    Anyone remember these?
