My final post for a while - as people have been asking me for book recommendations, I've put together a list of books I've read this past year. I've been asked a lot about psychology books but I don't dabble too much in the science of psychology anymore - I think it's a weaker version of spirituality, it definitely has it's place but I don't hold it as high as I do the newer things I'm learning. Anyway, here we go:

Psychology/Body Language:

- Neuropsychology: From Theory to Practice by David Andrewes
- What Every BODY is Saying by Joe Navarro
- Undercover Sex Signals (recommended by Drexel) by Leil Lowndes
- Body Language: How our Movements and Postures Reveal our Secret Selves by Julius Fast
- The Body Language Project Dating, Attraction and Sexual Body Language
- Body Language Secrets A Guide During Courtship & Dating by R. Don Steele
- The Body Language of Sex, Power, and Aggression by Julius Fast
- Understand Body Language (Teach Yourself) by Gordon Wainwright
- Body Language 101 Discover the Psychology Secrets by Hanif Raah

Ego/Identity/Spirituality/Life Coaching:

- The Alchemist (this is the book that got me away from psychology/scientific intellect) by Paulo Coelho
- A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
- The Magician's Way by William Whitecloud
- The Last Shaman by William Whitecloud
- The Five People you Meet in Heaven by Albom Mitch
- The Man Who Quit Money
- The Ego Tunnel The Science of the Mind and the Myth of the Self
- The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
- The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
- Daring Greatly - Brown Brene
- Letting Go - The Pathway of Surrender by David R. Hawkins
- Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
- As a Man Thinketh by James Allen
- The Path of Least Resistance - Robert Fritz
- The Four Agreements - by Don Miguel Ruiz
- The Energy of Love - Leta Herman
- The Five Love Languages - Gary D. Chapman

Conversation Books/Question Books: A quick note; I read many of these while I was still struggling with socializing with people. Some of them were good, some of them did absolutely nothing for me. Many of them offer the exact same material and I had an ego/identity problem stopping me from socializing. In the end, it was the books mentioned above and not below that changed my life;

- Peoplesmart
- How to Talk to Absolutely Anyone Confident Communication in Every Situation
- The Complete Book of Questions 1001 Conversation Starters for Any Occasion
- The Fine Art of Small Talk How To Start a Conversation, Keep It Going, Build Networking Skills
- Interpersonal Communication - Everyday Encounters - 8th Edition
- The Small Talk Handbook
- Conversationally Speaking
- How to talk to Anyone: 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships

There you have it - there's every book I've read this year that I felt was worth sharing. Several others weren't worth mentioning.

I'm out,
