Getting Ahead of the Game
If you're in search of self-improvement, the one thing I have really found to be boosting myself is Tyler Durden's "Real Social Dynamics". It's an audio series, but I find that to be the best in improving self game rather than technique.
I do also have Dale Carnegie's book, although I have not started reading it yet. I also have the Stylelife Challenge, and then a load of more audiotapes, which includes Cory Skyy's "Magnetic Mindset" and 50 Cent's "The 50th Law". I have listened to bits of the 50th Law and I also find it to be pretty good. Not as good as Tyler Durden's stuff, but still ranking up high.
What I like the most about audiotapes is that you can listen to them while walking, driving, doing chores, and every other which thing. So far I'm halfway through Tyler Durden's 20 hour (take a few maybe) lecture series, and the only times I have listened to it is when I have been walking to and from classes. Another thing to add: I started listening to this about two weeks ago, knocking out about a half an hour to an hour a day.
Although books are nice, they are not the only place where you can find great information. Audio tracks are nice because all you have to do is listen and absorb.
