5 Must Read Inspirational Book of All Time

Reading brings knowledge & with knowledge comes power. As Edward Bulwer-Lytton said in his novel “A Pen Is Mightier Than A Sword”, just like that, reading books can teach us more than what we learn browsing the internet. People are inspired by the acts of other people. Bravery, knowledge, motivation, strength etc may be what inspires you. But you would never know the true inspirational story behinds one man’s/woman’s success until they say it to you through their own words.

Inspirational Books

And this is where the knowledge empowered in books comes into the play. Yes, you might have heard an inspirational story of a person on the internet, through videos or blogs. BUT to dive into the feeling of the inspiration that they felt, you have to hear it from their own writing.

So here is a list of inspirational books, that you should read from.  Know the true meaning of inspiration from the writers own words.

5 Inspirational Book that You Must Read:

1. Oh the Places You Will Go By Dr. Seuss

A book that disquiets the challenges that one have to face in the journey of life. This is an inspirational book for those who have switched to a new life, which may be after college, or a loss, or a decision of changing one’s life. In a small glimpse, the book talks about a character who left the town on his/her own. And traveling through places, the books talk about “The Waiting Place” which is a place where the character has been waiting to reach and for something to happen. The book concludes with an open end of the character being the reader’s own thoughts.

The narrator talks about life-changing tips (“life hacks” as modern people would say) which will help you be inspired. The book teaches the reader about how not to be assumpting, to try the best in every aspect, not to take a loss or anything personally and to be appreciable with the word you speak.

A book worth reading a million time, hope you enjoy this book to the fullest. This book sold over 5 million copies in the US itself and was translated into 48 different languages. The book was said to be brought out as a movie but Pausch turned it down saying “there’s no reason to do the book, but if it’s telling the story of the lecture in the medium of film, we already have that”.
