The current issue of Morningstar Advisor, a magazine for investment advisors, features a piece entitled “Seven Books that Can Change Your Life,” by author Allyson (The Seven-Minute Difference) Lewis.
Lewis’s list includes: the New York Times bestselling memoir-cum thriller Lone Survivor, the story of Navy SEAL Marcus Lutrell’s harrowing 2005 escape from Taliban forces in Afghanistan; Endurance, a chronicle of Sir Ernest Shakelton’s historic (and near-fatal) 1914 Antarctic trek; a pair of success classics (Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People and George Clason’s The Richest Man in Babylon); a pair of efficiency primers (David Allen’s Getting Things Done and Roger C. Gibson’s standard investment text Asset Allocation: Balancing Financial Risk) . . . and (drum roll) The Go-Giver.
“Books can change your life,” writes Lewis. “Choosing to become a reader is one productivity idea for everyone. If you want to be different tomorrow than you are today, then make sure you set aside time to grow and learn from books.”
Well said — and much appreciated, Allyson!
P.S. And thanks to Gill Wagner and John D. Murry (who signs his name JDM, just like someone I know!) for bringing this to our attention!
