Why have people from different cultures and eras formulated myths and stories with similar structures? What does this similarity tell us about the mind, morality, and structure of the world itself? From the author of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos comes a provocative hypothesis that explores the connection between what modern neuropsychology tells us about the brain and what rituals, myths, and religious stories have long narrated. A cutting-edge work that brings together neuropsychology, cognitive science, and Freudian and Jungian approaches to mythology and narrative, Maps of Meaning presents a rich theory that makes the wisdom and meaning of myth accessible to the critical modern mind.

The Holy Bible

Is by far the most important and my most read book. It is the basis from which I make my decisions and I believe this is the basis from which all wisdom originates, being the word of God himself. The Bible gives us a plethora of examples, understanding and descriptions of the nature of God and the nature of man. With this we can align ourselves to live in the goodness he intended for us as he reveals his will as we read his word.

Reading

Mark Twain - "A person who won't read, has no advantage over one who can't read."

Jim Rohn -  "Poor people have a big TV, Rich people have a big Library."

Warren Buffett attributes his success to reading and approximates that he spends 80% of his day reading.

Bill Gates is known as a famous "Bookworm" reading about 50 books a year.

 

I particularly enjoy reading because I know that I cannot always spend time around people who are more successful than myself. However, I understand that by reading I am always able to access the wisdom and knowledge of those very same people. Furthermore, I am able to very effectively develop and improve my own self in areas I or others see that I am lacking, or in topics of which I would like to understand.

 

Perhaps you're a reader too, or maybe you would like some recommendations, below are the books I have completed personally. If you have any in common or even some that you have enjoyed that I haven't read. I would love to hear about them. And if you just beginning to read, I would love to recommend the following:
