10 books that will expand your brain

Business card books:  These are books like "How to be a leader". They establish the author as an expert. The author then uses this book to get speaking gigs or coaching or consulting gigs. These books usually suck. Don't read one. But nothing wrong with writing one. In fact, writing one might be desperately important to your career.

Books that should be chapters:  A publisher will see an article somewhere like, "12 ways to become smarter" and say, "that should be a book". Then the writer mistakenly says, "ok" and he has to undergo the agony of changing something that was a perfectly good 2000 word article into a 60,000 word book. Those books suck. Don't read one. And DEFINITELY don't write one. Unless you want to waste a year of your life. I wasted 2004-2009 doing that.

Braingasm books: Here's my top 10 list of braingasm books. Books that will raise your IQ between the time you start and the time you end. By the way, there are more than 10 of these books. This is just my TOP 10. Although not really in that order. It's hard for a small mind like mine to order these. [Note: I KNOW, Jeff, that I have a monthly book club. Don't yell at me! But this is separate. That's 10 books A MONTH. This is my top 10 of ALL TIME, although it might change. In fact, I know it's going to change tomorrow. I'm reading a good book right now. Sometimes it changes everyday.
