Recommended Posts

Although I have my own ideas, I wanted to solicit ideas from this board on book recommendations for young professionals, undergraduate and older high school students.  (Traditionally, I will send my kids and nieces and nephews book recommendations for the summer.)  Last year it was  Power by Pfefer and Influence by Cialdini.

I'd recommend Victor Frankl's "Searching for meaning". It's short, but very good, containing some very useful life lessons.

 

I'd also recommend 7 habits of effective people. It would be an advantage to read it (and use these principles) early in life.

Anything recent by Seth Godin is probably quite interesting to them:

Especially Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? How to drive your career and create a remarkable future and The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly? come to mind.
