What is the best book you have ever read for motivation and courage?
Both motivation and courage begin with having a strong mindset. In order to accomplish that one has to change their current belief system to a point where they believe they can obtain their goal. There are two books I have read that helped me with this.
1. "Feeling is The Secret" (Ideas That Shape The World) by Neville Goddard.
2. "The Greatest Salesman in the World" by Og Mandino. (This book is just as much about "life philosophy" as it is sales. It's told as a parable set in the time just prior to Christianity.
The best book I have ever read by far would have to be to Kill a MockingBird by Harper Lee.
You asked a question I cannot answer. I have read hundreds of books. Wonderful books that I have forgotten the names of. But three of my current books are, "They Thought for Themselves" by Sid Roth, It is about ten Jews who dare to do the impossoble and succeeded; "Loving God," by Charles Colson. It gives us a new perspective about God starting with a short comment about his conversion and then from the lives of real people we are inspired; "The Holiness of God," by R.C. Sproul is a soul searching book that will cause you to re-examine your life and give you an understanding of God that you never had before.
Read Buddhism books,you will be motivated well. Buddhism is teaching us to improve our spirit and most of lessons are meaningful.
It's called "Something More: Excavating your Authentic Self" by Sarah Ban Breathnach.....This book is amazing.
It's not a single book, but a trilogy. Dave Pelzer's "A child called it" series of books totally inspired me. They made me realise that I shouldn't just waste life, nor give up, as there are so many people out there who have came from less than nothing to success stories. I cried so much during the first book, became hopeful in the second, and cried again in the third, but this time from happiness! Definately recommend them.
I read The Purpose Driven Life when I was teaching and going to graduate school full-time. It was incredibly stressful, but in my hardest semester I took 5 minutes daily to read a short chapter in this book. It refocused how I thought about things- it's not really about me. It was incredibly motivating to me to understand that the silly things that I stressed about normally were really not important in the grand scheme of things.

I decided at the beginning of this year that I would read more but I do believe that, like wine, life is too short to read bad books!I have recently purchased the kindle app on my iphone and am keen to purchase but I can't see the wood for the trees!

What is the best fiction or non fiction book you have ever read?I'm in a constant search for good reads, and I found it infinitely easier and more rewarding if I just ask other people what their favorites are (kinda like asking a waiter/waitress what their favorite meal on the menu is... you can...

What was the name of the worst book you've ever read?Some people point to Moon People. Others mention the numerous post-apocalyptic "Survivalist" tales. Either way, there are tons and tons bad books out there. What's your least favorite?
