    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is recognized as one of the most influential books ever written. In this seminal work, Stephen R. Covey presents a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional problems. With penetrating insights and pointed anecdotes, Covey reveals a step-by-step framework for living and working based on fundamental principles or natural laws, giving us the security to adapt to change, and the wisdom and power to take advantage of the opportunities that change creates. Translated into thirty-four languages and with phenomenal sales, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been the key to the success of legions of individuals, business leaders and organizations the world over.  CLICK HERE TO START READING!
    Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?

    In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police.

    Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"-filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.  CLICK HERE TO START READING!

    Think and Grow Richpublished in 1937, has been called the "Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature." It was the first book to boldly ask, "What makes a winner?" The man who asked and listened for the answer, Napoleon Hill, is now counted in the top ranks of the world's winners himself.

    The most famous of all teachers of success spent "a fortune and the better part of a lifetime of effort" to produce the "Law of Success" philosophy that forms the basis of his books and that is so powerfully summarized in this one.

    In Think and Grow RichHill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles.  It will show you not only what to do but how to do it. Once you learn and apply the simple, basic techniques revealed here, you will have mastered the secret of true and lasting success. Money and material things are essential for freedom of body and mind, but there are some who will feel that the greatest of all riches can be evaluated only in terms of lasting friendships, loving family relationships, understanding between business associates, and introspective harmony which brings one true peace of mind!  CLICK HERE TO START READING!

    -- You walk into a restaurant and get an immediate sense that you should leave.

    -- You are about to step onto an elevator with a stranger and something stops you.

    -- You interview a potential new employee who has the resume to do the job, but something tells you not to offer a position.

    These scenarios all represent LEFT OF BANG, the moments before something bad happens. But how many times have you talked yourself out of leaving the restaurant, getting off the elevator, or getting over your silly “gut” feeling about someone? Is there a way to not just listen to your inner protector more, but to actually increase your sensitivity to threats before they happen?

    Legendary Marine General James Mattis asked the same question and issued a directive to operationalize the Marine Corps’ Combat Hunter program. A comprehensive and no-nonsense approach to heightening each and every one of our gifts of fear, LEFT OF BANG is the result.  CLICK HERE TO START READING!

    In The Power of Habit, award-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit, contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.  CLICK HERE TO START READING!

    The 48 Laws of Power should be required reading for all new correctional officers.  It is arguably one of the most read books by inmates and prisoners, and frequently turns up on the list of banned books at many correctional facilities.  The reason?  It’s a book about manipulation.

    In the wrong hands, it could cause a fair deal of pain and suffering for others. It shows inmates how to get people to do exactly what they want them to do.  Greene’s “The 48 Laws of Power” has been described as the “bible for atheists,” “chicken soup for the soulless” and, by The New Yorker, a manual on “how to be a creep.”

    However, in the right hands, this book is a primer on how to understand, identify, and effectively deal with manipulation and deceit.

    If you read this book, do so with the intent of understanding your enemy and avoiding those that would use these laws to hurt you.  Know what your enemies are studying – click here to read this book.
