(Slideshow) Top 10 Self-Help Books of All Time

Forget the old concepts of retirement and a deferred life plan. There is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. For living more and working less, this book is the blueprint. A really new kind of thinking about where you invest your time and what is the most effective way to do it.

“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.”

    Great list. But if you are talking about the top 10 self-help books of ALL TIME, surely Napoleon Hill’s Think And Grow Rich beats most books on this list. I’ve read a few of these titles though and it is a good list.
