“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”

    – Steven King

As a writer and self-help enthusiast, I love all books, especially books that teach me something about myself, other people, and our world.

Here are a few of my favorites. Please check back, as I'm always adding to my library and list. 

Atomic Habits

James Clear elevates the concept of habits into a vehicle that can help us change our very identity. For Clear, habits were life saving and helped him rebuild his life and skills after a traumatic injury put him in a coma as a teen.  Practical strategies show us how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. As Clear so cleverly puts it, "Habits are the compound interest of self improvement." Deceptively simple but incredibly powerful.

The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, this is one of those books that I return to periodically and it's message always penetrates a bit deeper each time.

Anatomy of the Spirit

I have purchased numerous copies of this book over the years for friends because it's that good. Using the body's seven centers of spiritual and physical power, Myss synthesizes the ancient wisdom of three spiritual traditions to demonstrate the seven stages we pass in the search for higher consciousness and spiritual maturity. 

You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety. – Abraham Maslow
