Know what I mean?
The Alchemist" Paolo Coehlo
"Tuesdays with Morrie" Mitch Albom
"Five people you meet in heaven" Mitch Albom
"The Prophet" Kahil Gibran
Not "self help" books as such Harry, but books of great wisdom and learning.
ALL your answers are there my friend, but only if you choose to ask the right questions............. and trust me..............some of those questions bloody hurt.
Edit.... actually Mr Coelho has written so many fantastic journeys...google and choose, but for me, The Alchemist will always be his finest moment.
