Listing of books does not necessarily mean endorsement of every concept in the book.

Pscyho Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz

One thing not taught in schools is how the human mind works. In this book, Dr. Maxwell Maltz does an excellent job of explaining how the human mind works through goal setting. You are already setting goals for yourself whether you know it or not, and your subconscious mind is working on fulfilling those goals along the natural lines that God created for the mind to work. (When reading any book dealing with goal-setting or positive mental attitude, be sure not to fall for the deception of the eastern religions that "I am God." This absurd view is sometimes an unspoken premise of positive mental attitude-type books. However, the positive mental attitude type books often teach how the mind works in a very helpful and useful way.

Alternative Science by John Milton

This is an interesting book about the battles scientific inventions pass through as they are being accepted. As Orville and Wilbur Wright flew the first airplane over their fields -- no one could get the local papers to even go out and investigate. It took President Theodore Roosevelt to send a military investigator to break the story! And a number of current scientific controversies are explored. Very interesting.
