These have been some of the books in which I have found courage and inspiration. I have divided them into three groups (environmental, social and personal development) to make it easier for you to find those that interest you most. However, don’t forget that each pillar depends on the other. The environmental, the social and the spiritual are completely interconnected.
Finally, remember to always read them with a critical spirit accompanied by common sense. Make them yours in your own way, doubt everything. Don’t believe anything without slowly maturing it with you.
I sincerely hope that this list will be useful to you.
