Well there are a few more....
Earl Nightingale's Greatest Discovery: By Earl Nightingale
Here Earl tells of (at the age of 12) , wandering the endless librarys of Long Beach, California trying to find why some people are getting what they want and why others aren't. Then one day he discovers an amazing book and in it he say's, the magical answer is presented. It is so powerful a discovery that Earl spends the rest of his life telling people about it. He even STARTS the audio book industry on a single recording about this 'secret' which he names:
'The Strangest Secret in the World'. (tape available still)
I have read this and heard the tape over a hundred times and each time it would bolster my work and mind. Although at the level the idea is at, it is true, there are higher levels where it becomes transcended and remains a truth of lower order. Where duality stops - Oneness is.
Another really useful book is: Creativity for Life by Eric Maisel...I may have recommended this one before but that is because of its importance among books for artists and writers. Though I have published in two countries 6 books, and sold every last copy, I still am amazed at the largeness of what there is to learn about creating. Most of my books I made by hand, yet people only know it when I tell them. They usually are fascinated that such a fine job of book making can be done by a single person, let alone while watching tv, or chatting with friends. But Creativity for Life by Eric Maisel is well worth sending for from lets say Amazon.com where you can buy a used copy for around a few bucks. The author has more than 30 books he has written and is considered to be one of the most informed today, in the US about creativity. Covering moods and madness (very eye opening) , obscurity and fame, creative block's (of which I never have had for some strange reason) , love of craft, perils of isolation (which I have known all my life) , and social interactions. This work is comprehensive and should certainly be read by all readers who tend to create. He speaks with knowledge in this work of Goya, Stravinsky, Willie Nelson, Elbert Hubbard, Cocteau, David Merrick, Chekhov, Truman Capote, Arthur Hailey, Paul Simon, and Jack Lemmon to name just a few of the creatives. I promise you that if you get his book and read it, it will be of great comfort and joy to you.

Gone are the days when children played,
So happily, with no regrets,
All were so contented, and none ...
