What Book Has influenced You the Most?

So the other day, I dropped my boy off at the airport – he’s about to take on the second semester of his freshman year of college. And then he made the bold statement and prediction that he’s about to aggressively go after his studies! 

“2020 is my year,” he boasted… “so if you have any motivational books or information, send them my way…” It was exactly the posture a man wants to see his son have toward his challenges.

So, naturally I gave him the old “attaboy” statement; I wanted to share a few pearls with him right away. Beyond Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” I wasn’t able to think of one…

So, help me out here – what books have really influenced you to achieve your best performance, particularly as a young man?
