I second you on the Conversation with God series. That was some powerful writing by Mr. Walsch. However, I think that's a very deep book for starters.Originally posted by Brickhouse
I second the Alchemist - and if you can tolerate books with a slightly religious slant, I recommend "Conversations with God" Honestly, that book really pushed me to reach for my goals.

Brickhouse, are you a big fan of Walsh's work?
dizzle said:'complications' by atul gawande. he's a surgeon. incredible book. if you haven't read it you should. the whole book is amazing, but the last chapter will blow your mind.
I think that I am going to beat you, because that was the book that I was going to recommend. Now I can't recommend it because I have to be "original".rpost3 said:It's about a shipwrecked boy who's trying to survive on a lifeboat with a live bengal tiger. It's fantastic. Won the British equivilent of the Pulitzer Prize 2 years ago I believe. Also, Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods has me busting out laughing every 5 seconds in public when I read it. Embarassing? Yes. Funny? Definitely.
Hmm... Never read it. Did a quick search and it looks like that thing has been translated into every single language! Whoa.jlee9531 said:The Little Prince...best book ever written.
A Single Shard
"See You At The Top" by Zig Ziglar is one of the best books I've ever read. It has nothing to do with medicine, but is something everyone could benefit from reading.Azjoe said:I am feeling really down about this long process. I need to read something to keep me going. Anyone have any suggestions?
I read that also (The Five People..) it was pretty good...I enjoyed it. Not quite as good as his previous work "Tuesdays with Morrie" though... but that is a really good book.Mossjoh said:I second "The Five People You Meet in Heaven"
