Today on Twitter and Facebook I asked my followers to recommend a good book that they'd recently read. I got a ton of replies and thought I'd share them here.

  • @blogdesigner: I recently started re-reading "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill because it adds a fire under my ass to push forward in biz
  • @jesshoffman: When Words Collide - Kessler. Cover to cover...again. Why? Because technology makes my writing lazy & law school makes it dull.
  • @techmanchild: Ken Follett is a manchild. Fall of Giants was and is spectacular.
  • @DannyMJohnson: The Help. I know it's a girl book but I LOVED it! Just started the memoir by Michael Oher from the Blind Side...We'll see
  • @pckaufma: "The Next Level" by @ScottEblin - direct instruction on how to live in the moment while moving into the future as a leader
  • @amy_z: I'd recommend Girls on the Edge -"best book on state of girls and young women in America"
  • @andyarnold: The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris. Presents a rational argument 4 morality--w/out myth. Emphasis on "well-being."
  • @SterlingEdSrv: One of my personal favorites is Pastwatch by Orson Scott Card.
  • Carla Marie Ciampa: OK, I just read "By Nightfall" by Michael Cunningham. Fiction. Interesting book about couple at a ho-hum stage of middle-age, middle income, middle class ho-hum life. (Not "rock your world" good, but moments of true insight.)
  • Stephanie West Allen (@idealawg): The new book "Succeed" by Halvorson is the best book I have read on goal setting.
    The author bases the book on research. Best of all, she recognizes that effective goal setting...
  • Robert Blankenship (@rjblankenship): The Art of De-motivation by E.L. Kersten Ph.D. available from It is an excellent look at our economy and management of a business.
  • Larry Port (@larryport): Best book for me of 2010: The Given Day by Dennis Lehane. 2009: The Big Switch, Nick Carr.
  • Ann Penners Bergen: Henning Mankell: The Fifth Woman - Swedish murder mystery writer, very cozy and very interesting at the same time.

I second @techmanchild's endorsement of Ken Follett. Awesome historical fiction. Loved Fall of Giants. I read Think and Grow Rich four years ago per blogdesigner's rec, and the next thing you know I left a steady job to launch an Internet business.

Currently reading Atlas Shrugged. At this point I'm a 3rd of the way through and I get the conceit. I wonder what the remaining 2/3rds explore? It alternates between reaching deeply into your mind and being a bit of a slog.

Thanks Niki for doing this!
