My favorite kind of books are personal growth books. I love to read about new ways to improve myself and my life. I want to share with you my list of top ten books that will change your life.

They’re more convenient than physical books and there’s just something so inspiring about listening to the author read their book to you in their own voice. If you’re into personal growth as much as I am, get ready to add some of these books to your reading list!
This is the first personal growth book I read and I highly recommend it to everyone. Even if you don’t think you need to grow, you should still read it. This book teaches you how to effectively communicate with and influence others. Through this book, I learned how to cultivate genuine friendships and how to be more empathetic. The biggest thing I have learned from this book is how to get people to agree with my way of thinking while still being respectful towards them. I’ve read this book several times and have embedded the advice deep inside my brain. It’s a must!
