Books that are based on interviews of successful people virtually tell the same stories with the same life lessons. These are the kind of books that are based on personal anecdotes. Motivational books give you a perspective on the world, culture, and about yourself at an age rather than letting you dive into conventional self-help novels. This is one of the few things all the successful people and leaders have in common. You can do the same if you want to find inspiration and wisdom to move with your life forward.
