Nancy Friday – My Secret Garden, this book really helped me understand how fucked up female fantasies can be. It’s rather an eye opening book.
Art of Seduction – Robert Greene – if you like history, it’s an interesting book. I think R.Green spends too much time circle jerking in his book, but decent read.
The Fine Art of Erotic Talk – can’t recall the author. It’s good for beginner, i found it to be too bland.
The Selfish Gene – Richard Dawkins. It’s not for everyone. After reading this book I was paranoid that all my girlfriends were fucking on the side. But it truly puts Alpha male Beta provider male into perspective. I like Dawkins.
Comedy Writing Secrets – Helitzer – that book just helped me be more funny with girls. While reading you’ll start analyzing jokes. Then it goes away. It literally changed my social life. I started getting “you’re so funny” remarks not only from women but from guy friends too. Everyone loves laughter.
Sway – Ori Brafman – an interesting outlook why people act irrationally. It allowed me to understand women better.
Just about any book by Malcolm Gladwell – Tipping Point, Outliers, etc. He’s an exceptional writer.
Psycho-Cybernetics – various authors, but original concept is fascinating.
Virus of the Mind – Richard Brodie – fucking amazing book that explains why shit goes viral. LITERALLY way before Internet existed the way we know it. I am actually about to re-read this book. Also talks about “memes”. No, not the Advice Animals or Awkward Penguin ones.
What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do The Opposite – DiSalvo – this book opened my eyes to why we do shit we do. It’s an interesting and easy read.
You are not So Smart – David McRaney – this book is not only entertaining but also gives you a lot of interesting psychological mind-fucks media and society uses on you (maybe not on purpose). This book explains social tricks and a lot of misguided concepts you see on TV. After reading this book, I felt a little bit shaken.
Lean Startup – Eric Ries, exceptional outlook on entrepreneurship. Addresses “paralysis by analysis” issue with most startups. If you’re into running your own business, it’s a must.
Power – Jeffrey Pfeffer – this book is fundamental for anyone trying to achieve success in business. It breaks down principles on how to become more influential. Good read.
Tao Te Ching – just read it. It’s not long and it’s a perspective on life. Also if you liked Eckhart Tolle books, that’s along the same path.
7 Habbits of Highly Effective People – Stephen Covey – self explanatory.
Brave New World – Huxley – it’s a sci-fi book that’s becoming very close to reality in modern days.
Whatever your patience can stomach by Ayn Rand. She’s not an easy read, but start with Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. I will see you next year. It is that fucking long.
The Elements of Style – William Shrunk – most of us cannot write for shit. See?
Poking the Box – somewhat motivational.
