Mastery, by Robert Greene
This is without doubt one of the best books I have ever read. Written by Robert Greene (the author of the 48 laws of power), this master work of a book de-mystifies the process of attaining mastery in any chosen field of endeavor. Rather than romanticize and/or sugar coat the process of attaining mastery, it goes into great depth showing the very practical steps required to complete the journey. From mastering the technical aspects of your chosen discipline to mastering your own emotions and interactions with other people, this book covers every last relevant detail. If you are serious about getting to a stage of mastery in your chosen discipline, this book is an absolute must read. It will be one of the best investments you make… hands down!
