Many people believe that diving into a self-help book is a big undertaking -- that somehow working on ourselves requires the perfect setting for optimal impact and retention. Sadly, this keeps some amazing books at arm’s length from a lot of people who would benefit from them. What if you tossed out the ‘perfect setting required’ belief? I have. My preferred travel reading is almost exclusively personal development. Why?

I have devoured each of these titles on a plane, train, or boat. I hope you pack one on your next trip.
