Anyone into Self-Help / Motivational books?

What books or authors (if any) do you like in this 'genre'? Any that have stood out or made a significant impact on your life?

I like the Og Mandino books as well as some by Robbins, Ziglar, and Tony Jeary. On the religious side, TD Jakes is great!

Thoughts?

Check out Deepak Chopra's 'Seven Spiritual Laws... '. Napoleon Hills 'Think and Get Rich' as well as 'Master Keys to Riches' are classic's. If you're into the mystical/natural side of spirituality Castaneda is hard to top. John-Roger & Peter McWilliams books are excellent. 'Life 101' and another titled 'Do It' are easy reads and full of practical wisdom.

He's friends with Deepak Chopra, another of my favorite authors. I bought an audio book by Dyer and Chopra a few months ago. They took turns expressing their views on various things. When on the subject of anger and violence, Dyer did a five minute rant on ban the guns and do somehing for heavens sake by voting for anti-gun politicians etc. etc. The whole speach could have been written by Handgun Control Inc. I wrote Dyer an email saying essentially, that I wasn't happy about him using his book and association with Chopra to push his antigun agenda. Not that he didn't have a right to express his political opinions, only that if he intended to use my money to do it, letting me know on the fly cover would be polite. In anycase, I know better now. That won't happen again. Needless to say he hasn't responded.
