This is version 3 of my post about 2 years ago. Take your time and digest. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need some guidance. Removed some books that the community agreed is not as helpful. Added new notes to some titles. Addition of some new titles. I'm sure most, if not all of you know the importance of reading. It's been drilled into our heads since the first day of kindergarten. Reading is a cornerstone of our education. I personally really enjoy reading, and I hope most of you learn to enjoy it as well.
Reading increases your value, not just as a man but as a human being. Whole books filled with knowledge and years of experience compiled for you can be bought or borrowed yes, for free! People live, learn, and experience and put pen to paper to document their findings for the world to see. Yet most don't tap into this vast fountain of knowledge. I can keep going on and on but I'm sure you get the point. I like to re-read these books once a year to "keep the saw sharp.
Read and digest the sidebar, and when you're ready, come back for more to continue your journey. Some books have different stances on the same subject, as with everything in TRP and life, take with a grain of salt and apply to your life accordingly. In this edition, I've added a genre and priority ranking system. The ranking system goes as such: P1 - Must read. P2 - Must read after P1. P3 - Read after you've internalized most of TRP principles.
P4 - Read when you have time and want to continue your education. P5 - Not a huge priority, read when you have the time to keep your saw sharp.
Feel free to let me know what you think of the ranking and if it should be changed.
