“Pay attention to him and his material, you will be glad you did.”

~ Bob Proctor, best-selling author and star of The Secret.


It’s vitally important that you read books. As Mark Twain wrote, “The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.”

And many would agree that “personal development” books are the ones to focus on if you’re trying to improve yourself, your position in life and your quality of life.

But which ones should you read? There are tens of thousands to choose from.

Vic Johnson, a veteran personal development author, speaker and trainer, answers that question for us in “Self Help Books: The 101 Best Personal Development Classics."

From an 1,100 page “encyclopedia of success” to a 28-page speech that became a classic more than a hundred years ago, Vic identifies the publication dates of the classics, the major theme(s) of the book and then some solid reasons to add them to your reading list.

Along the way he also shares valuable anecdotes on his personal lessons learned from these authors (some of whom have mentored him).

This is quick and easy reading that takes the guesswork out of choosing the books to add to your library as well as helping you prioritize your reading.

No matter how successful you think you are … there’s always room for improvement … Vic Johnson has put together a list of classic volumes, some I’m familiar with and some … I’m happy to say … I’ll have to look for … perhaps at Amazon … my Kindle can always use more good news.

Worth more than 99 cents!

Okay, one reviewer said they could gather the same information by just searching the internet. I’ve done a LOT of searching, and there are three titles I discovered in “The 101 Best Personal Development Classics” that I have NEVER heard of! Not gonna give it away, but they are books I will definitely get and read ASAP! The other thing I like about this little gem is the brief synopsis Vic gives about each book listed. A huge help to me. Thanks, Vic. I’ve been a fan for a long time. You never disappoint.

Excellent Guide!

I purchased this on one of my famous 99 cent download sprees and was pleasantly surprised! Vic Johnson has beautifully compiled the best in the Personal Development literary genre. It’s a short read, which is great because you’ll be very anxious to get started on some of his recommendations. This guide saved me lots of time & money and I’m very happy to have stumbled upon it. Highly recommended download!

Vic Johnson has been inspiring and mentoring people for years. His new book is an excellent list of the key works in the self-development field. The introduction is quite revealing, showing his roots and giving a ‘5 top’ list. The educated person reads quality books. Worth a read.

Vic Johnson has compiled a list of the books that have been the most influential in his life. Among his 101 reviewed volumes are books with several different themes; the power of the mind, time management, personal relationships, reducing worry, how to make a sale, how to use your mistakes for success, and get the most out of your reading material, classic compilations of inspirational stories and more. These are all more recent classics written from 1854 to 2002. You will probably be familiar with some of them, like Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People and Who Moved My Cheese — already on my favorites list. Other inviting titles in this list appear to be much less well known. You certainly can’t get them from Google with a snap.
