Without further ado, here are Tai Lopez’s top 100 book recommendations. You definitely need to check these out, buy as many of them as you can, and start reading!


1. Managing Oneself – By Peter Drucker

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: with ambition, drive, and talent, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession, regardless of where you started out.

In Managing Oneself, Peter Drucker explains how to do it. The keys: Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself by identifying your most valuable strengths and most dangerous weaknesses.


2. Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind – By David Buss

This book examines human psychology and behavior through the lens of modern evolutionary psychology.

Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind, 5th edition provides students with the conceptual tools of evolutionary psychology, and applies them to empirical research on the human mind.


3. How to Win Friends & Influence People – By Dale Carnegie

Millions of people around the world have improved their lives based on the teachings of Dale Carnegie.

In How to Win Friends and Influence People, he offers practical advice and techniques for how to get out of a mental rut and make life more rewarding.


4. The Selfish Gene – By Richard Dawkins

Professor Dawkins articulates a gene’s eye view of evolution. A view giving center stage to these persistent units of information, and in which organisms can be seen as vehicles for their replication.

This imaginative, powerful, and stylistically brilliant work not only brought the insights of Neo-Darwinism to a wide audience. But galvanized the biology community, generating much debate and stimulating whole new areas of research.


5. The Lessons of History – By Will & Ariel Durant

Will and Ariel Durant have succeeded in distilling for the reader the accumulated store of knowledge and experience from their five decades of work on the eleven monumental volumes of The Story of Civilization.


6. Kon Tiki – By Thor Heyerdahl

“Kon-Tiki” is the record of an astonishing adventure across the Pacific Ocean. Intrigued by Polynesian folklore, biologist Thor Heyerdahl suspected that the South Sea Islands had been settled by an ancient race from thousands of miles to the east.

He decided to prove his theory by building a boat using the materials that would have been available to those pre-Columbian sailors and duplicating their legendary voyage.


7. Civilization & It’s Discontents – By Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud enumerates the fundamental tensions between civilization and the individual. The primary friction stems from the individual’s quest for instinctual freedom and civilization’s contrary demand for conformity and instinctual repression


8. When I Stop Talking, You’ll Know I’m Dead – By Jerry Weintraub

A fast-talking wise-ass from the Bronx, Jerry Weintraub became a millionaire at 26 by handling some of the biggest acts in show biz, most famously Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.

The last of the great Hollywood moguls, Jerry is probably best known as the producer of such classic films as Nashville, Diner, Oh, God! and The Karate Kid, as well as the more recent Oceans 11, 12, and 13, which have together grossed over a billion dollars.


9. The Story of The Human Body – By Daniel Lieberman

This ground-breaking book of popular science explores how the way we use our bodies is all wrong.

From an evolutionary perspective, if normal is defined as what most people have done for millions of years, then it’s normal to walk and run 9 -15 kilometres a day to hunt and gather fresh food which is high in fibre, low in sugar, and barely processed.

It’s also normal to spend much of your time nursing, napping, making stone tools, and gossiping with a small band of people.


10. The One Thing – By Gary Keller

You want fewer distractions and less on your plate. The daily barrage of e-mails, texts, tweets, messages, and meetings distract you and stress you out.

The simultaneous demands of work and family are taking a toll. And what’s the cost? Second-rate work, missed deadlines, smaller pay cheques, fewer promotions-and lots of stress.
