Self Reliance

"Self-Reliance" is more of an essay and less of a book - written by Ralph Waldo Emerson and first published in 1841. The essay argues that individuals should trust their own instincts and beliefs, rather than conforming to societal expectations and values. Emerson encourages you to embrace your individuality, take risks, and pursue your passions, even if it means going against the norm. The book is a call to self-reliance and a celebration of individualism, inspiring readers to think for themselves and forge their own paths in life.

Man's Search for Meaning

This classic is a memoir and self-help book written by Viktor Frankl, first published in 1946.

Frankl argues that finding meaning and purpose in life is the key to mental and emotional well-being, even in the most challenging of circumstances. The book has become a classic in the fields of psychology and self-help and has inspired many readers to find meaning in their own lives.
