These are some of the books that have influenced me most and that I recommend often to others. I'm very attached to these books; they are like friends to me. They have given me a view of life that has proven over and over how richly life can be experienced and inspired me to enjoy all the wonderful blessings that this universe has to offer. It is my hope that you can enjoy them with as much pleasure as I have. My gratitude to the authors for the wealth of ideas that they have bestowed upon us all.
