Have you read any of them already? If so, let me know your thoughts.

You probably haven’t spent a day without being bombarded with messages to consume more.
They are everywhere, promising to fill the void within you.
Affluenza exposes the rise of consumerism and reminds us of what is truly important. It looks at what got us here and how to reverse the damage done to live happier, more fulfilled lives.
Does your brain create consciousness, or does consciousness create reality?
This book is quite a mind-bender. It explores paranormal phenomena observed in scientific studies, the idea of past lives, and the possibility of one consciousness.
All claims are backed by either scientific studies or vast amounts of proof, making them hard to dismiss.
If taken seriously, this book can make you kinder and happier.
Do you believe ageing is part and parcel of life? We are born, we live, get old, sick, and then die.
But what if we didn’t have to age and get sick? What if we could get older without experiencing any nasty side effects?
Imagine a world where you would never have to see your loved ones suffer from diseases like dementia, Alzheimer’s, and countless more bought on by old age.

The Price of Tomorrow looks at how we can use technology to improve our lives and escape this rat race.
I have been lucky enough to find this book in my early twenties. However, if you are already in another decade of your life, then perhaps you can recommend this book to a twenty or thirty-year-old in your life.
It explores the choices you make in your twenties, from your first job to marriage and kids.
You might have been told your twenties don’t matter, that you should explore and find out who you are before settling down, but this might not be entirely true.
The things you do in your twenties can define how you spend the rest of your life.

Did you know men and women experience heart attacks differently? Unfortunately, the symptoms we are told to look out for mainly apply to men, so countless women don’t realise when they are having a heart attack.
The Richest Man in Babylon was one of the most influential finance books I’ve read.
It is quite short, and despite being released almost 100 years ago, the advice is as applicable today as ever.

Each of these books changed at least one aspect of my life. I hope they can do the same for you.
