There are so many different books recommended for Personal Development that sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.
I’ve compiled a list of books that I’ve been recommended by business partners of mine and friends, some I have already read and some are on my reading list.
Some of these have been recommended by several people and the ones that haven’t been recommended by several have been recommended by people who’s opinions I value.

These books all link to Amazon in the US, but if you’re based in Canada or the UK it will redirect you to your site.
Most of these books were recommended to me as a network marketer as the company I partner with is very big on helping with personal development. Personally I think we all need a hand with something whether we are lacking in self confidence or are being held back from doing things we want by fear of the unknown.
