    Nice list, I’m going to add choices #2 & 3 to my booklist. I’ve been taking an interest in self-help books.

    You should also read Peace from Broken Pieces by Iyanla Vanzant. Perfect Peace by Daniel Black should be considered an African American classic.

      Those two books were on another reading list Clutch did last year. Perfect Peace was an amazing read!

  • I read Platinum last year. It is a great book; I couldn’t put it down. Diamond Life will be on my list of must reads this year!!
