My Top 15 Book Recommendations and 60+ Others Too!

“Will, can you recommend me a good personal development book please?”

I get this question weekly

My usual response to the above question is “what are you trying to achieve or what is your current challenge, so I can ensure I suggest one based on your desire or needs?”

Obviously, I can’t ask you this question.

So I have decided to put together my top recommendations.

I love learning from books. You often get wisdom it has taken the author decades to learn themselves in a matter of days.
