Jim Rohn......................................

Faithful readers of this blog will know that Jim Rohn has long been a favorite of mine.  Last week I stumbled across Twelve Pillars, a book he co-wrote.  They call it a novel, but really is just a vehicle for easily conveying his philosophy for living a better life.  If you get interrupted twice, it might take an hour and a half to read.  Of course, one might benefit from re-reading it weekly.
      The hero of the tale says at one point, "Formal education will make you a living.  Self-education will make you a fortune."  He then offers up a reading list, "Books Everyone Should Read," as a pretty good starting point for self-education.  See if you agree:

1.   The Bible
2.   How to Read A Book,  Mortimer Adler
3.   My Utmost for His Highest,  Oswald Chambers
4.   As A Man Thinketh,  James Allen
5.   Seeds of Greatness, Denis Waitley
6.   Seasons of Life, Jim Rohn
7.   The Pursuit of God, Acden W. Tozer
8.   Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill
9.   Power of Positive Thinking, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale
10. Magic of Thinking Big,  David Schwartz
11. Greatest Salesman In the World, Og Mandino
12. How to Win Friends and Influence People,  Dale Carnegie
13. Atlas Shrugged,  Ayn Rand
14. Man's Search for Meaning, Viktor E. Frankl
15. Acres of Diamonds,  Russell Conwell
16. See You at the Top,  Zig Ziglar
17. Seven Habits of Highly Successful People,  Stephen R. Covey
18. Lessons in History, William James Durant
19. The Richest Man in Babylon,  George S. Clason
20. The Story of Philosophy,  William James Durant
