Atul Gawande argues that we as a society are more educated and more trained than we’ve ever been before. So why do we still fail? We have access to incredibly complex information but it’s our inability to deliver that information that’s causing us grief. He suggests a simple solution: a checklist.

5. Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.

Daniel Kahneman’s book focuses on the way we think about things. By analyzing the processes behind intuition, decision-making, and reactions, he lifts the curtain on how we process information as well as showing us the reasons why we assess certain situations incorrectly.  You’ll never think the same way again after reading it.

6. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.

Malcolm Gladwell’s book focuses on successful people. But too much has been written about the habits of successful people and how to emulate them. Instead, Outliers tries to focus on how where we come from contributes to our success. From why Asians appear to be better at math and what it takes to become a billionaire, Gladwell tackles them all.

7. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Napoleon Hill has spent a lifetime examining what makes a successful man, analyzing the lives of titans of industry like Andrew Carnegie and Henry Ford. By studying these men, Hill developed his “Laws of Success” – a philosophy that has taught thousands of people how to become a winner. This updated version includes tips derived from the success of billionaires like Bill Gates.
