Books That Changed My Life 

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.

Very soon I will be adding an article to the Spark to Bonfire website that has a list of the 50 plus books I recommend both for my Bonfire Trailblazers, as well as for people who are wanting to upgrade their life and/or pursue life change & go live the life their heart longs for.

Below is a list of the books (19 so far) that have had the greatest impact on my journey.

These books are more or less listed in the order that I first read them.
