If I were to choose authors whose work relates to each of the book in the series, I would name Ayn Rand and Aristotle for the first book. Not only did each provide groundwork for philosophy, but also Ayn Rand explained the real concept of the hero and leader. Concerning the second book, which is science and theory of the mind, [...]
Some of the best-known books on leadership include: Think and Grow Rich (Napoleon Hill) The Greatest Salesman in the World (Og Mandino) Awaken the Giant Within (Anthony Robbins) The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Stephen R.

People construct houses that stand longer than 80 years. They start out with the idea of one day either selling the house or leaving it to [...]
