]"Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill[/U][/B][/COLOR]
-A MUST MUST ABSOLUTELY MUST read book about pretty much how to use the most valuable asset you will ever have - your head.
GREAT READ, THE GREATEST PHILOSOPHY OF SUCCESS!!!
"The 48 Laws of Power" by Robert Greene. It will give you an edge in this cut-throat business. Also, I recommend its sister book, "The Art of Seduction". Make no mistake...it's not about sex. You will see how seducers get what they want, be the courtesans or politicians. recognize when you're being played or courted for someone elses purposes.
