5. The catcher in the rye:
You will not find many people who haven’t read this book. All successful people across the board adore this novel. J.D Salinger’s book about a young man who is having trouble coming to terms with his identity and growing up is a powerful look into how difficult it can be to find oneself in the midst of so many other people’s depictions of who you should be. The lesson that can be taken away from this book is that confusion is bound to happen when you are still figuring out what it is you want and who you want to be, but you should never lose the essential parts of who you are in the process.
