This book really changed the way I think about what is really possible. Most of my friends have heard me mention, quote or suggest this book a million times over the last few years but I can't help it because, to me, the things I have learned from this book are really that great.
Yes it's true that the title of the book is an extreme example but there are really great tools and concepts in this book that will change the way you think about what is possible. As Timothy Ferris says in the book, 'Think of it as an exercise in Lateral thinking'. Something that is becoming more and more valuable in this day and age.
Please read or listen to this book here. (there is no shame in audio books)
