The Bonfire Book List

Published August 9 2022

Updated August 12, 2022 – the list of Steven Pressfield’s LifeChange/Achievement Books has been added

 This article will be updated twice a month until all of the various books lists mentioned below are published. As these various updates occur they will be noted above. 

I have read 100s and 100s of books in my life and reading books is one of the two disciplines that have most helped my to change my life and make my story extraordinary. Stay tuned for info about that second life changing discipline coming soon! 

Below is a comprehensive list of the top 25 or so books that I recommend for those who want to upgrade their lives. #YouCanUpgradeYourLife

If you are a Bonfire Trailblazer, or building a brand, or building a business, pursuing life change, or battling for a long held dream –  the books listed below will help you to Go Live The Life You Imagine.

I break this “list” down into the one book you need to read if you are only going to read just one, and then my top 25 books for those wanting to upgrade their life.

Below the top 25 list is a second list of additional books that I have read that have been helpful to my own LifeChange journey.

I encourage you to read through the books listed below and read the ones that speak to you. I also encourage you to Read One Book a Month. Pro tip – reading 10 pages a day will finish most of these books in less than 30 days. 

Books in Specific Categories 

In the next few months I will also have books listed for those recovering from trauma, books about the polyvagal theory, books for those who are grieving , books about emotions, books about branding, books for introverts, books for entrepreneurs, books for content creators, and the LifeChange/Achievement  books by Steven Pressfield.

 

Please Note: I  have read each one of these books listed below and while I don’t agree with everything in any book –  if a book is listed here  – I found it to be helpful.

You will find that that books below are listed alphabetically.
