  1. 1. Eric Berne's book ” Games that people play. People who play games ” has already been mentioned, but it is a crime not to include it in this list.
    2. Jack Lewis, Adrian Webster “The Brain-a Quick Guide”. This is for those who skipped biology and psychology, but ran into the biological limitations of their consciousness.
    3. Larisa Parfentiev “100 ways to change your life”. I'm sure you've read excerpts from this book in your vk posts, but they weren't authored. And here is a whole book of already chewed-up conclusions and experiences. It is suitable even for those who are too lazy to think about what they have read: read it, apply it.
    4. Barbara Shar. Any book – they are all about finding a vocation. Everyone will like it more than their own, but I can't yet decide which of the three I would prefer to read.
    5. Greg McKeon “Essentialism”. About rebooting and cleaning up not so much in time management, but in the head and life.

  2. Osho's series of lectures “The Tao: A Path without a Path”. The rest of the books should find you by themselves. Some of the strangest sources have ever found me, and I've learned a lot from all of them, even though I didn't expect this. Someone else's list is not suitable for anyone, only the first book.

    And you can't do Laozi like the first book. Except for Lezi and Zhuangzi, if you really want to read something from this series.

  3. Vladimir Levy's books “The Art of Being Yourself”and” People are Lucky ” taught them how to manage emotions and look at the world in a positive way.Victor Pekelis”Your opportunities, man! “V. S. Rotenberg ” Brain and health”.”Qigong therapy”.No health problems.

  4. Stephen Covey's “7 habits of Highly Effective People”

    Robert Cialdini “The Psychology of Influence”

    Steve Harvey “You don't know anything about men” or “Act like a woman, think like a man”

    Jack Schafer and Marvin Carlins “Turning on the Special Services 'Sense of Smell”

    Vladimir Voroshilov “The phenomenon of the game”

  5. My top 5 books that really and practically taught me a healthy perception of reality:

    1. “The science of self-awareness”, in my opinion, is the best place to start learning about yourself and the world around you;

    2. “Journey Home”, an interesting autobiography, will allow you to deal with most of the philosophies and religions of the world at once.

    1. “Bhagavad Gita as it is” is a book for life, a storehouse of ancient wisdom.

    4. Эволю “Evolution of consciousness” author Khakimov Alexander, allows you to change your attitude to yourself and other people, after this book you can not help but love life.

    5. The laws of fate or three steps to success and happiness-practical techniques, a lot that has been written about it…, in general, all psychology is here at once.

  6. To have or to be? (Erich Fromm)-how not to and how to live this life

    Psychoanalysis and Mysticism (I. I. Garin)-human psychology

    Rich Dad Poor Dad (Robert Kiyosaki)-how to become rich

    Psychology of the Masses (Gustave Le Bon)-how people are managed

  7. Irwin Yalom “Healing from Love”

    Martin Seligman (he has a lot)

    Kelly McGonigal “Willpower” (Mental Resilience Training)

    Salvador Minukhin and Fishman on Family therapy

    Perhaps these are the main ones

  8. Labkovsky “I want and I will”. I helped you understand yourself and your problems. Find solutions, changed the attitude to people. And the most important thing is that we have a problem to solve.

  9. At the moment, I can only name one book – this is “Stream” by Mihai Csikszentmihalyi.

    Mihai Csikszentmihalyi helped me realize the main thing through the Stream: absolutely any activity can and should bring pleasure.)

    After reading this book, you begin to do something useful, learn, work, and appreciate time, not because you have read something motivating (although the book can also work as a motivational tool), but because the author really encourages and convinces, and his arguments are unobtrusive and at the same time reinforced concrete.

    This is a really very useful book, I advise you.

  10. “Transurfing Reality” by Vadim Zeland. This book helped me look at some things differently, from a different angle. I began to understand people more or less better and understand their actions in certain situations. In our world, not everything is as clear as it really seems, and this book will help you understand this.

    “Applied Sucker Science”. A very interesting book about how not to live.

  11. The phrase “taught not to create problems for yourself” immediately reminded me of Eric Byrne's book ” Games that People Play. People who play games.” For me, it turned out to be extremely useful, helped me step over the adolescent perception of the world and rethink my behavior and attitude to certain things. I plan to read it again.
    Carol Dweck's book Flexible Consciousness is accessible and also thought provoking. I don't agree with all the arguments, but the book certainly deserves attention.
    And the last item (five were not typed, unfortunately) will not be a book, but an article, however, its benefits can hardly be overestimated. It has the saying title ” To hell with motivation, you need discipline.” Right here it is in English, but here it has been carefully translated for you into Russian:�vc.ru

  12. I recommend “But I don't have you. How to go straight to your goal.” Interesting, simple and trouble-free motivates to get up from the couch)) or schedule a climb after the end of all this isolation

  13. I specialize in technology startups, content marketing, and venture capital investments. These areas of interest did not develop by themselves — my attention was drawn to them by books and their authors (I have already met some of them personally).

    Getting Real (by 37signals) – about approaches to developing a web application and the principles of creating any technology project.

    The Critical Path (by Horace Dediu and Dan Benjamin) – based on the podcast of the same name on the topic of strategic analysis of the smartphone market, the reasons for the failures and successes of a number of technology companies like Apple, Google and others.

    #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur's Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness (by Gary Vaynerchuk) — based on the YouTube show of the same name, on the topic — everything is clear from the title.

    I think that these examples will be enough to get acquainted with the topic. Now I've completely switched to podcasts. I'll add a couple of them to the top five:

    4. Back to Work (by Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin) — a podcast about productive work, self-critical and humorous attitude to the surrounding reality.

    5. Roderick on the Line — by John Roderick and Merlin Mann) – author's stories from the life of independent musician John Roderick, everyday analysis with humor.

  14. L. Gumilev “Ethnogenesis and biosphere of the earth”

    Yu. M. Lotman “Semiotics of culture”

    E. Norwood “Women who Love too much”

    J. Cameron “The Artist's Way”

    M. Montessori “My method”

  15. Carlos Castaneda – his eleven books in the Sofia edition. These books should be read very carefully and more than once. Then take practice (rather than colorful descriptions) and perform. Don't eat dope, that's not what they're talking about 🙂 Ouspensky “In Search of the Miraculous” about Gurdjieff. These books are for those who have decided to do. But they are often read in their youth as a fairy tale, and then slowly change their whole life.

  16. “Tao” (Lao Tzu) – a lot of small parables, almost proverbs, which allow you to get rid of excess in life.

    “Diagnostics of karma “(Lazarev) – there is a lot of strange, controversial, detached from reality, and probably everything useful I could read from other books, but it just so happened that in a difficult situation it came to me and very correctly corrected my worldview.�

    “Survival course for a teenager “(Dee Snyders) – useful for both teenagers and parents.

    Kozlov's books from “Sinton” – he certainly has a severe preponderance in the direction of reasoning about free sex, but if you skip it, then a really good set of tips for communicating with people.

    But I didn't like Carnegie at all. Although it may help someone.

  17. – Bulimia – food or Life, Irina Kulchinskaya

    – Allen Carr – �An easy way to stop drinking

    – Cola Cola-the dirty truth

    – Chemical dependence

    – On caffeine

  18. Very difficult question, actually. I will name only three.

    1. Mikhail Litvak “The spermatozyod principle”

    A very interesting and, surprisingly for pop psychology, useful publication, which sets out the main problems of communication and ways to solve them in a clear way.

    2. School biology textbook

    This series of books helped me see how complex and interesting the planet is.

    3.�Peter Gelderloos “Anarchy works”

    The book is a kind of legends of modern anarchism, telling that there are alternatives to modern society.

  19. Turbo Gopher
    Only without fanaticism and practices. Read the interesting took, uninteresting put on the shelf.
    If you do not salt energy from space in three-liter cans, then this is the right amount of skepticism

  20. Norman Doidge “Brain Plasticity”

    Martin Buber “Me and You”

    Irwin Yalom “Mommy and the Meaning of Life”

    Fritz Perls “Ego, Hunger and Aggression”

    Clarissa Pinkola Estes “Running with the Wolves”
