There have been many excellent books that have greatly influenced what I
believe and how I behave. I try to spend at least some time every day
reading or listening to the audio version of a book that will improve my
life in some way.

“Whatever your mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.” – Napoleon
Hill
当你的脑力构想来任何事物,并宠信能促成其。-拿破仑·希尔

When I first started my career, I spent a large amount of time reading
software-development–focused books. Now, I spend more of my time reading
books that have a wider application.

American born Napoleon Hill is considered to have influenced more people
into success than any other person in history. He has been perhaps the
most influential man in the area of personal success technique
development, primarily through his classic book Think and Grow Rich
which has helped million of the people and has been important in the
life of many successful people such as W. Clement Stone and Og
Mandino.
美国落地之拿破仑希尔给认为相对于历史的其他人,引导了双重多人遂。他有或是当个体成功学领域最为有影响力的人选,他的经文书籍《思考致富》在中起及了最主要作用,这本书都帮助了上百万人口,而且在不少成功人士–比如克莱门特斯通同奥格·曼狄诺–的命遭受装有重要位置。

I’ve made it a habit of asking any famous or highly successful person
who I’ve met what one book he or she would recommend that everyone
should read. Through this quest, I’ve uncovered many impactful books
that have literally changed my life.

Napoleon Hill was born into poverty in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the
Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. At the age of 10 his mother died,
and two years later his father remarried. He became a very rebellious
boy, but grew up to be an incredible man. He began his writing career at
age 13 as a “mountain reporter” for small town newspapers and went on to
become America’s most beloved motivational author. Fighting against all
class of great disadvantages and pressures, he dedicated more than 25
years of his life to define the reasons by which so many people fail to
achieve true financial success and happiness in their life.
拿破仑希尔以1883年降生让弗吉尼亚州怀斯县英镑河边上之单间小屋的贫困家庭。他的妈妈当他10载之时光死亡,两年后他大又结婚,他改成一个坏叛逆的男孩,不过倒是成同各类好突出之汉子。他于13秋起撰写,为“记者山”,一份小型的乡镇报纸,最终成长为美国最为被欢迎的作者。通过战胜各种不同程度之阻止和压力,他吃了逾25年来查找导致多丁在实现财富自由和摸索在美满着败诉的缘由。

In this chapter, I’m going to give you the list of the best and most
influential books I’ve ever read—both on the software development and
non-software development side.

During this time he achieved great success as an attorney and
journalist. His early career as a reporter helped finance his way
through law school. He was given an assignment to write a series of
success stories of famous men, and his big break came when he was asked
to interview steel-magnate Andrew Carnegie. Mr. Carnegie commissioned
Hill to interview over 500 millionaires to find a success formula that
could be used by the average person. These included Thomas Edison,
Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, Charles M. Schwab,
Theodore Roosevelt, William Wrigley Jr, John Wanamaker, WIlliam Jennings
Bryan, George Eastman, Woodrow Wilson, William H. Taft, John D.
Rockefeller, F. W. Woolworth, Jennings Randolph, among others.
以这里面遭他当做同名叫律师和记者实现了英雄的成功,他的早期记者生涯资助他不负众望了法学院的就学。毕业后他受分配去作一多元著名人士的中标故事,当他失去收集钢铁巨头安德鲁·卡耐基的时节巨大契机到来了,卡耐基先生委托希尔去收集500大抵个富豪以便去发现能够下被老百姓的中标公式。被采访人的起托马斯·爱迪生,亚历山大·格雷厄姆·贝尔,亨利·福特,盖茨埃尔默,查尔斯·施瓦布,西奥多·罗斯福,威廉箭牌JR,约翰·沃纳梅克,威廉·詹宁斯·布赖恩,乔治·伊士曼,伍德罗·威尔逊,威廉·塔夫脱,约翰·D·洛克菲勒,FW伍尔沃斯,詹宁斯伦道夫,等等。

Self-help and inspirational books

He became an advisor to Andrew Carnegie, and with Carnegie’s help he
formulated a philosophy of success, drawing on the thoughts and
experience of a multitude of rags-to-riches tycoons. It took Hill over
20 years to produce his book, a classic in the Personal Development
field called Think and Grow Rich. This book has sold over 7 million
copies and has helped thousands achieve success.
他成为了安德鲁·卡耐基的顾问,通过借鉴众多建的成功人士的想法跟更并以卡耐基的援助下他找到了中标学原理。它吃了希尔20基本上年成功了《思考致富》这本开,一照经典的个人成长领域书籍。这按照开卖来了700多万份,帮助了数坐总算的总人口遂。

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield (Black Irish Books, 2002)

The secret to success is very simple but you’ll have to read the book to
find out what it is!
成功的私房是非常简单的,但是若必去看这按照开去找到成功之秘。

I’ll start with one of my favorite books of all time. This book gave
words to a frustration I long held in regards to work and why it’s so
difficult to just sit down and do it.

Napoleon Hill passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful
career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success.
His work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the
cornerstone of modern motivation. His book, Think and Grow Rich, is the
all time best-seller in the field.
透过漫长而成功的创作、教学、演讲关于成功法虽的职业生涯后拿破仑·希尔过世让1970年11月份。他的私房成功树立了同样所丰碑,当代定性是及时栋丰碑的水源。在他谢世之前《思考致富》是成功学领域卖出量最多的书。

In this book, Pressfield identifies this mysterious force we all
encounter when we sit down to try and do anything meaningful. He says
this force, resistance, is the secret and ambivalent destroyer of all of
our attempts to traverse from a lower calling to a higher one.

Perhaps no other success book has influenced more people than Napoleon
Hill’s Classic Think and Grow Rich. Since it’s introduction in 1937,
millions of copies have been sold around the world. It still remains one
of the top selling books of its kind.
生或不会见重来另成功学书籍能够过拿破仑·希尔的藏图书《思考致富》影响到的口。自1937年出,数百万份早已销售往世界各地。它依旧是同类产品中最为畅销的图书之一。

Just by identifying this common enemy within us, we start to gain power
over it. If you’re having trouble with procrastination or just finding
the motivation to go forward and do what you know you should be doing,
you’ll find this book immensely useful.

Several years ago I came across a biography of Hill on a PBS show and it
was an eye-opening adventure into the life of a man whose days were not
the smooth sailing I had always assumed they were.
几度年前自己当PBS频道看到了有关希尔的传,这是一个先生连无顺利且使得人稀起来眼界的身进程,以及时之前自己经常以为他的成功是轻且简单的。(这句翻译不好,请见谅)

How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie (Reprint-
t, Gallery Books, 1998)

Napoleon struggled against a myriad of obstacles throughout his life
many of which were brought on by some of the earlier choices he had
made. I can’t count the number of times he became broke and penniless
following a highly successful venture gone sour. His personal life was
as spotted as his financial life and a recounting of that could easily
consume a full book.
以破仑挣扎翻越了生早期他的挑选带的居多绊脚石。我非克统计他打响创业后又破产并同样贫而雪的次数。外的个人在该经济的生活历程和故事可轻松的填写满一本书。(翻译不好。。。)

This book is another one of the most influential books I’ve ever read.
This book changed my personal views in many ways and has helped me
achieve success in dealing with people that I hadn’t thought possible
before.

I would have thought that my discovery of his many flaws would cause me
to lose respect for him, and thus doubt the veracity of his teachings
that have influenced me for more than twenty years. But it is quite the
opposite. Having listened to the struggles of this very human man has
given me a whole new perspective of respect, even awe, of the incredible
resilience and persistence that he displayed repeatedly against
sometimes massive odds.
自身当然当自之发现他重重夺缺点后会见跌我对客的尊崇,进而怀疑他的傅都影响自身之超二十年之实在。但是完全相反的。在纵了就段老人性化的冲刺历程后让了自身一个全新的看法去尊敬,甚至是敬畏,他多次呈现出底教人难以置信的随意和偏执令他当僵持着据为己有了大气优势。

Before I read this book, I was a staunch believer in negative
reinforcement to modify the behavior of others. I felt compelled to
enforce my own strict disciplinarian standards on others. I believed
that when someone was wrong, it was important to tell them so; that the
best way to motivate a person was through the threat of punishment.

I now understand that he didn’t write about some theory of how to think
and grow rich. He wrote from experience his numerous experiences and the
experiences of America’s most successful.
现在本身知了他写的未是有什么样错过思辨致富的肤浅理论。他的文字来于外的阅历,他的成百上千更,这是美国极其成功的涉。翻译的坏。。。

After reading this book, my views changed 180 degrees. I realized that
negative reinforcement was almost completely futile—that the only way to
get people to do what you wanted was to compel them to want to do it.

While the casual observer would believe that this book is only about
making money, those of us who have studied it for years know otherwise.
It’s about a better way to live a rich life. And for that I am grateful
that Napoleon gave so much of himself in order that he might leave us
with this incredible work.
对于粗心的读者会相信当下本书仅仅是关于什么致富的,这些我们早已修了连年。这按照开其实是关于什么还好之了上富足的在。对于当下同一触及我那个谢谢以破仑留下了这样多成功经验,而非是带在他的别致之更去我们如果失去。

If there is any book on this list you must read, this is the one. I
firmly believe everyone should read this book. I’ve read it at least a
dozen times, and every time I go back and read it again, I gain a new
insight.

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (Wilder Publications,
2007)

This first time I tried to read this book, I put it down in frustration.
The second time, I got a little further, but again thought the book was
a bit too crazy for my liking. Finally, after speaking to multiple
highly successful people who recommended this book—some who completely
attributed their success to it—I decided to read it again.

This book is a little strange. It basically purports that if you believe
a thing and you hold onto and reinforce that belief, it will become
reality. I’ll warn you, there isn’t much science to this approach. The
book doesn’t even try to come up with the science to explain it, but by
whatever means this works, I’ve seen it work in my life and many others
will swear by it as well.

The idea of a mastermind group actually originates from this book. There
are many other important concepts in this book that will help you to
learn how to change your own beliefs, which may have a powerful effect
on your life.

Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz (Reprint, Pocket Books,
1989)

In many ways this book reminds me of Think and Grow Rich, but a
scientific version of it. This book was written by a plastic surgeon who
discovered that when he changed people’s faces, it actually changed
their personalities. This caused him to do research into self-image and
to discover some important ways that our self-image has the power to
completely change our lives for the good or the bad.

I found this book to have some very good insights on how the mind works
and how it affects our bodies. This book is full of all kinds of
practical applications of methods to change your attitude, your
self-image, and your beliefs for the positive.

The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale (Reprint, –
Touchstone, 2003)

This book is a bit religious, so be forewarned, but the overall message
of this book is very powerful. The idea that positive thinking can have
a profound impact on your life is one that I adamantly subscribe to. If
you’re trying to develop a more positive attitude, this book can
certainly help you do that.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (Reprint, Signet, 2005)

You’ll either love this book or hate it, but either way, it will make
you think. This book is fiction—and it’s long at around 1,200 pages—but
it asks some very serious questions about life, economics, and work.

Software development books

Code Complete by Steve McConnell (Microsoft Press;
2nd edition, 2004)

This book completely changed the way I wrote code. After I read this
book was the first time I felt like I was writing and understood what
good code was. The examples in this book are primarily written in C++,
but the concepts transcend any individual language.

This book is a complete guide to writing good code and structuring that
code at a very low level. While many software development books focus on
higher-level design, this is one of the only books I’ve found that
focuses on details like how to name variables and structure the actual
code inside of an algorithm.

If I ever own a software development shop, this book will be required
reading by all developers I hire. This has definitely been the most
influential software development book I’ve ever read.

Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftmanship by Robert M-
Martin (Prentice Hall, 2008)

Reading this book was an absolute joy. Code Complete taught me how to
write good code; Clean Code refined that knowledge and helped me
understand how to take that knowledge to a complete codebase and design.

This book is another book I consider required reading for any software
developer. The concepts in this book will help you to become a better
developer and to appreciate why simple and understandable is better than
clever.

Head First Design Patterns by Eric Freeman, Elisabeth Robson, Ber- rt
Bates, and Kathy Sierra (O’Reilly Media, 2004)

It might seem a bit strange that I’d recommend this book over the
classic Design Patterns book, but this book does an excellent job of
making design patterns approachable and understandable.

Don’t get me wrong, the Design Patterns book is a great book and
introduced the idea of the classic design patterns in software
development, but this book does a much better job of explaining them. If
you’re going to read one design patterns book, read this one.

Investing

The Millionaire Real Estate Investor by Gary Keller
(McGraw-Hill, 2005)

If I had to recommend one book on real estate investing, this would be
it. This book explains exactly why real estate investing is such a good
idea and how to get rich from it, and it gives you an exact plan for
doing so.

This book contains plenty of charts that show you exactly how real
estate investment pays off over the long run and it isn’t filled with a
lot of “fluff.”

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki (Demco Media, 2000)

This was another life-changing book for me that changed the way I looked
at money and finance. This book changed my view of how money works and
what it means to have a job and work for someone else. After reading
this book I clearly understood how important it is to create assets and
to reduce your expenses.

My only complaint with this book is that it doesn’t really tell you how.
Still, there’s valuable advice in this book—and Kiyosaki’s entire Rich
Dad
series—and I’d highly recommend it.

No-Hype Options Trading: Myths, Realities, and Strategies That Re-
eally Work by Kerry Given (Wiley, 2011)

Lots of financial books promise ridiculous returns and make outrageous
claims, but this one doesn’t. Instead, it presents the facts and helps
you realistically understand how options trading works and some
practical strategies you can employ to make money, along with the
inherent risk those strategies will incur. I’d highly recommend this
book if you’re looking into getting into options trading, or just want
to understand it better.
