Does anyone have recommendations for self-improvement books written by Asians/Asian-Americans? By self-improvement, I mean any book that has caused you to reflect or positively impacted your life to include philosophy or leadership.

Laura Huang’s new book Edge is good. Any of the Robin Sharma books are classics. Not specifically leadership books but Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong and Sigh Gone by Phuc Tran are amazing thought provoking books. Jim Kwik has a best seller out. Eric Siu has a boom coming out next month: Leveling Up. Connect w me on IG if you want to chat further. @jerryjwon

Thought-provoking was the phrase I was looking for! Thanks for your recommendations :)

Started reading Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong. Hit home for me.

I wouldn’t classify this as self improvement but “this is not a t shirt” by Bobby hundreds is pretty inspiring / a good read IMO. I find it encouraging for Asian Americans who gave up any creative aspirations to follow the safe route of business/Law/med etc. to hear his story of dropping out of law school to start a clothing brand. Haven’t read double cup love by Eddie Huang but fresh off the boat was a good read too, just didn’t have the same effect on me
