Recommended Reading/Listening

As I am often asked to recommend books on particular topics, I thought it might be useful to summarise some of my favourites. I have a personal preference for listening to audio versions, rather than reading, as they utilise dead time while driving.

Settle for Excellence – – Topher Morrison

Book. One of the best personal development books I’ve read. Says what many other “self-help gurus“ say, but in a wonderful way with great insights. Having worked with Topher (no relation) on a one-to-one basis, I am privileged to call him my friend. When he comes to the UK you must go hear what he has to say!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen Covey

Audio/book. Superb – the section on communicating/listening is probably the best “training” audio I have heard. Brilliant for both work and family life.

Maverick – Ricardo Semler

Book. Excellent, easy reading (like a novel). Inspiring stuff if you want radical change in your company.

The Psychology of Achievement – Brian Tracy

Audio. Don’t be put off by the title. He talks about programming for success, goals and improving human relationships. Excellent.

The World’s Greatest Salesman – Og Mandino

Audio/book. Not what you might expect. A wonderfully narrated story (with a religious bent) about a young shepherd boy who receives 10 scrolls of wisdom. Focuses on forming good habits. Not just about selling, but about living positively.

Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Audio/book. As much about enriching your life as your wallet. A bit American and in a few parts a little dated, but very interesting and worthwhile.

Mindstore – Jack Black

Audio. One of the few “published” UK (Scottish) motivational speakers. Describes itself as the “ultimate mental fitness programme”. Very interesting and different, could be hugely powerful if used regularly.

Live Life with Passion – Anthony Robbins

Audio. Title covers it all. How to turn your dreams into reality. Excellent.

Customers for Life – Carl Sewell

Book. The “ten commandments of excellent customer service”. Easy read and very good for anyone involved in sales.

Get Clients Now – C.J. Hayden

Book. A 28-day marketing programme for professionals and service providers. An excellent, easy to read, practical workbook.

Fully Alive, Fully Human – Ed Foreman

Audio. Ten “power habits for making your life a masterpiece”. Business, personal and health issues. Easy listening and humorous.

The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity – Catherine Ponder

Book. Metaphysical Stuff! Some may find the religious overtones too much, but a book packed with practical stuff as well. Produces great results for me!

Wink – Roger Hamilton

Book/Audio. Described as a “Modern Day Parable of Wealth Beyond Words” or as I like to call it a modern day “Wink and Grow Rich” book. Anyone serious about creating real wealth should also check out Roger Hamilton’s Wealth Dynamics Profiling.

Most of the above can be found either at Amazon or Nightingale Conant
