    The Millionaire Fastlane by MJ Demarco.

    Helped me stop chasing money, stop believing in trading my time for money, and changed my entire outlook on wealth. Anyone who hasn't read it, I can't recommend it enough. Probably the best book on wealth I've ever read.

    yeh rich dad poor dad is nice, but I do think its a bit overrated. One of my all time favourites is the Alchemist Its not directly related to money but it did make me see things in a different way. I also really enjoyed Creativity inc by Ed Catmull pixar founder. Tim Ferris also wrote a nice book called the 4 hour work week. That was a good read too. The first half was better though.

    The next book on my to read list is think and grow rich by napoleon hill, its supposed to be a really great book.

    I wouldnt say any book has changed my life, but "BOLD" and "48 laws of powers" and "the lean startup" have been great reads for me in the last year. Being in university and nearing the end of my degree, they have taught me valuable lessons about life. Many might rant and rave about "4 hour work week" but I thought it was a self-help book that was vague and pretty obvious..

    Peter and Jane, because it was more realistic than 99% of the wank I read on the Internet.

    But then, a changing point in my life is when I read Billy Goats Gruff, because after reading this book about these stupid dumb irritating goats, I knew what I wanted to be in life.

    I wanted to be someone who stood up and said. NO. No fuck off dickhead goat, stop walking over my fucking bridge!

    Do not try to act the innocent with me, we both know you are the cunt. Now fuck off goat sheep man kind of thing.

    Very under rated book because it's a bit harsh, but everyone who's recommended it to you did it for the right reasons. I'll say download the book and read it, you'll thank me;)

    +1 for the millionaire fastlane and 4 hour work week. A little older, but Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins changed my life more than any other book.

    Happens that some of the books mentioned; Awaken the Giant Within and 48 Laws of Power are mentioned. Well, I'd recommend the books.

    A book that has changed my life; umh. I think by reading a book, you live the author's part of life and somehow your life changes in unimaginable ways.

    "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) by Corinne Sweet" After 6 years, I still practice lessons daily.
