Which is/are the most USEFUL book/books that you read?

They can be about all: psychology, religion, phylosophy, history etc.

 

The last one that I read and found very interesting was : "The Art of Persuasion" by Robert B. Cialdini. 

The author explains the psychological mechanisms of persuasion. Studies show that most of the tactics used by the specialists of persuasion fall into six basic categories: reciprocity, commitment and consistency, social proof, liking, authority and scarcity. To recognize them can be useful in every day life.

To Revoluciòn. Thank you very much for your comment. I have always been interested in history and socilogy so it can be a good suggesntio for my next book :)

A long time ago I read following interesting books:

1. "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carneigie.

2. A book about inductive and deductive logic in Urdu language, I don't remember the title.

3. Game, Set and Math: Enigmas and Conundrums.

4. Learn German in three months. (I started learning German from this book)

5. A few Chess learning books.

Recently I read "Simplify your life" (in German), a book with lots of practical tips on how to organize oneself.

Currently I am reading, "Puzzles to puzzle you" a book of mathematical puzzles.

Otherwise I am not a habitual book reader.

the most important book I've read in my entire life is the holy book Quran

 

48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

Two books I learned a lot from:

1. Good to Great. by Jim Collins

2. Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. By Daniel Pink. 

There're a lot of books but the book which inspired me is 'Making culture' book. And now I'm about to read 'men from mars women from venus' for John Gray.

To Nacir - thank you for the interesting list. I am a "follower" of minialism and semplification too.

To Malhadyan - I am sure it is and I hope to have the opportunity to read and understan it.

I always love your discussions, this one in particular makes me feel I should be reading more, there's so much to know! - Keeping in mind much knowledge doesn't necessarily bring much understanding :)) - Annie
