    These books however will give you the framework that you need to take action: 1. The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield. The most important book I’ve ever read, and the book that has helped me most to build successful businesses, write a book and create an authentic and fulfilling career. It has allowed me to break through my inner resistance.
