10 books that have helped me become a better man!

“Give yourself unto reading. The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read.”

– Charles Haddon Spurgeon


I will not tell you what you “should” read to help you become a better man. I’m not that wise. I will only tell you 10 of the books that have helped me become a better man. There are many more books that I could add to this list, but tonight as I glanced over my library, these 10 definitely stood out. Amazon links provided.
