As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
Allen's practical philosophy of successful living has awakened millions to discovery and perception of the truth that "they themselves are makers of themselves". Building on the Bible verse "As a man thinketh, so he is", Allen insists that it is within the power of each person to form his own character and create his own happiness.

Mind Power Into the 21st Century by John Kehoe
In this book John Kehoe explains how wanting success will not make you successful if you spend your day thinking about how unsuccessful you are, and how you always mess up. He then goes on to give you practical ways in which to harness your mind to create the kind of life you want through visualization, seeding, affirmations, imprinting and how to pay attention to your intuition and dreams. Through your thoughts, you can change your beliefs, which will change your life. This is an excellent book written in an easy to understand language.

The Luck Factor by Richard Wiseman
Ten years ago Wiseman decided to search for the elusive luck factor. Instead of accepting previous assumptions about genes, upbringing, intelligence, skill and personality, he went directly to the source--analyzing beliefs and experiences of lucky and unlucky people. A national media appeal helped Wiseman and his research team attract a pool of 400 volunteers willing to put their lives under the microscope for three years. The results? A radical new way to look at luck. It turns out that the lucky people in his study were actually creating their own good luck through their mental attitudes and behaviour.

Loving What Is by Byron Katie
"Byron Katie's Work is a great blessing for our planet. The root cause of suffering is identification with our thoughts, the 'stories' that are continuously running through our minds. Byron Katie's Work acts like a razor-sharp sword that cuts through that illusion and enables you to know for yourself the timeless essence of your being. Joy, peace, and love emanate from it as your natural state. In Loving What Is, you have the key. Now use it." -- Eckart Tolle, author of The Power of Now

Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers by Robert Sapolsky
Why don't zebras get ulcers - or heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases - when people do? In a fascinating look at the science of stress, biologist Robert Sapolsky presents an intriguing case, that people develop such diseases partly because our bodies aren't designed for the constant stresses of modern-day life like sitting in daily traffic jams or growing up in poverty. Rather, they seem more built for the kind of short-term stress faced by a zebra - like outrunning a lion. With wit, graceful writing, and a sprinkling of Far Side cartoons, this book makes understanding the science of stress and adventure in discovery.
