    I like a good self help book. Ideally nothing with too much in the way of long scientific passages since I just won't get through it - any recommendations? In particular anything relating to:
    • Making friends/forming social relationships
    • Making good/healthy life choices
    • Getting the life/future that you want

    Looking for inspiration :D

    Byron Katie is good! And maybe Wayne Dyer.
