I am a book person and I love to read. I am always searching for new books and new suggestions of what to look for. I admit that I love a good self help book! One of my favorite is the Artists Way by Julia Cameron, which is not a "traditional" self help I guess..... any way any suggestions for me? Would love to hear from you!

I'm a big fan of Eckhart Tolle. The two books I am familiar with are "The Power Or Now" and "A New Earth".

Personally I am more of a book "listener" as I tend to get more out of them this way and in the case of Eckhart, his voice adds a soothing calm. I can also multi-task (drive car/walk on treadmill/cook/do work around the house or yard/ rest with eyes closed laying on couch).

Eckhart also has a great Youtube channel...

I'm sure a search of books on Amazon under those subjects would show favorites and biggest sellers. Not to knock things here, but that will show the results of a huge audience that won't be present here.

Not sure if its "new age" or not, but The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer is one of the best books I've ever read.

Are there modern recommendations that takes social media and other changes in society into account? I've been reading a self help book, and I kept thinking that so much of it seems like outdated thinking.

I remember reading "The New Inquisition" by Robert Anton Wilson in the Eighties and being entertained by his unique point of view.

I like the M. Scott Peck books and particularly the Alice Miller (psychologist) books. They have been full of good guidelines for living for me.
