Earlier I recommended Marcus Buckingham's 'Go Put Your Strengths To Work' as a business motivation book, but all of his books are good life guides as well. 'Go Put...' had me virtually in tears because he says what I've tried to say for 30 years. Although it's $23 for a logon code, Tom Rath's 'Strengths Finder' is good to take. I'm starting to read 'The Soul Code' by James Hillman, a rebuttal of the mechanistic physiological paradigm of current psychology. Also: 'Cognitive Surplus' by Clay Shirky, 'What The Dog Saw' by Malcolm Gladwell, Ayn Rand, Anais Nin, Friedrich Nietzsche, Anton LaVey, and Aleister Crowley.

...and www.TED.com!

I tend to gravitate toward the religious/spiritual books authored by pastors that I look up to...Joel Osteen is one, Steven Furtick also just came out with his first book. I just finished reading "The Life You've Always Wanted" by author and pastor John Ortberg and really found that inspiring.

It depends what exactly you want to get better at. There is Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth, which is more general, there's Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus which talks about relationships. The resources section of this site will give you a better idea. I just got 'Why...A Guide to Life's Toughest Questions'
