Two books that have deeply impacted me are "The Slight Edge" by Jeff Olsen and "The Art of Learning" by Josh Waitzkin. Both of these books attempt to nail down why success happens in a unique manor. If you guys have any recommendations for life altering books please list em.

Some of my favourites that have influenced me the most:
Ikigai Think and grow rich As you think Awaken the giant within The art of stategy How to win friends and influence people Turning pro Quiet: The power of introverts... Way of the peaceful warrior (about 8 years since i red it, but I loved it back then)
I bought Slight Edge after reading this theard, loved it, thanks!
For me, Man's search for meaning by Viktor Frankl. It is an amazing insight showing how to respond to adversities (the author was a prisoner in a concentration camp). Also the autobiography of Theodore Roosevelt, which is someone I always admired.
Thanks for the suggestions! I'm always looking for new books to add to my list. I have read hundreds of books in the last few years (including the great classics How to Win Friends and Influence People, Think and Grow Rich, and The Way of the Superior Man). The book that started me on my self growth adventure was Don't Sweat The Small Stuff...and It's All Small Stuff by Richard Carlson. But the one book that blew my mind and changed my paradigm of life when I listened to it a few years ago was The Game by Neil Strauss (which is how I ended up following Tynan). It made me realize once and for all that you can create your own reality and play by your own rules during your short time on this planet.
My friend Elisia first showed me an ebook reader, the Kindle she bought as soon as they came out. The quality of the screen was jaw dropping - it wasn't anything like a computer screen, but instead actually looked like paper. As amazed as I was with the device, I had no intention of buying one. The form factor was clunky, it seemed like a superfluous device, and it couldn't natively display PDF files, which is the format I tend to read (and publish) in.
A couple months later I was wandering around in the Sony Store and I saw their ebook reader, the PRS-505. It had the same amazing screen that the kindle had, but was much smaller, less than a third of an inch thick. When I found out that it could also natively read PDF files I was tempted to buy it, but was still concerned that it was just a useless toy.
Six months later my friend Vince brought a Sony PRS-505 on the trip to Morocco that he joined me on. I found myself asking to borrow it constantly, just about any time he wasn't using it. If he fell asleep on the bus I'd carefully slide it away from his grip and read on it.
Karen Peebles is the author of many channeling books on the market today. She is in contact with the spirits of her family members who have crossed over into the spirit world, especially her Uncle George who co-authored a trilogy of books with Karen after having ended his life by suicide. Karen Peebles’ suicide trilogy is her most famous set of works and the most popular. Ms. Peebles also has written extensively about alpha brainwave experimentation, which she claims has allowed her access into the spirit world. Her most popular book on alpha brainwaves is Death is the Daybreak.
