I enjoy reading but I it's difficult to find really great books to read. Here are six non-fiction books that have had a big impact on my life. You should definitely buy them, read them, and have your life changed too. Don't worry if they don't address issues that you care about - simply reading them will make you care.

How it changed my life : I stopped eating sugar, flour, bad fats, and other things like that.

I just read this one two days ago and now I've gone vegan. It represents the largest and most comprehensive study of human nutrition and disease ever, and the findings are incredible. If you read this you will want to be vegan. Don't be scared off, thinking, "I love meat, I don't want to change!". The information is there and it makes you not WANT
to eat meat.

Your Focus of Attention

On Mental Models

Your attention is limited. What you place in your immediate attention will occupy much of your thoughts and time. Manage this wisely.

Imagine your attention as a limited two-dimensional space, like your desk or your computer screen.
