One great man said that “you should not get your daughter married in such a house where they don’t even have five good books.” Many of us want to read good books but do not know which book will give what value. I Bhavin.J.Shah Personal Transformation Coach, will tell you today about 22 books from my life’s experience. And every book is a life transforming book. Read my full blog and if possible purchase the books because one line of one book can change your life. Before I go ahead, I want to tell you that including my house and office I have more than 5000 books, not because I like to read but because when I was small, my father had a rule that whenever he used to go out of town, he never brought toys, clothes or chocolates. The only thing he use to get for me and my siblings was books. This is the reason behind my position today. He developed the habit of reading in us.
Let us start with some books –
1. Jonathan Livingston Seagull
This is book is based on a story of a bird named seagull. He wants to live a different life then what other birds lived. This book has been so successful that a movie is also made on it.

It is translated into many languages and I highly recommend this book.

It is one of my favorite books. This book is the root and king of motivational world. Without reading it no one can ever be a motivational speaker. One of my favorite author, speaker and a human being, Stephan R. Covey has written this book. He has seen that after the year 1950 the word motivation has come in existence and after that people started giving motivational speeches. He thought that from 1800 – 1950 whoever became great, how did it happen? He studied the lives of such people like Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein and many more and from that he took out common seven habits that made them great person. More than five crore copies of this book are sold. It is translated in almost all languages of world. I highly recommend this and it is no less than a Bhagwad Gita.
5. Unposted Letter
This book is written by an Indian Author, T.T Rangarajan also known as Mahatria. In this book he has given small-small articles which somewhere or the other represent our lives. I will give you a small example, one man was giving a party and in that party many invitees were there, everybody came and were dancing and one person asked the host that, “Why are you giving a party?” He replied, “Today I gifted Mercedes to my wife and she crashed it, that’s why I am giving the party.” They stopped dancing and said, “What are you saying? She crashed a Mercedes and you are giving a party!” He said, “Yes, another Mercedes can come but my wife can’t, she is alive and nothing happened to her.” Like this many other examples are there in the book. One of the best books for reading. If you will read even one chapter daily then also you will be very happy.

7. The Four Agreements
This book is such a book that shook me from inside. Life’s four such agreements which can make your life the best.
