Meditations — Marcus Aurelius

Nothing beats this, and it’s my first recommendation to everyone.

Not only was Marcus Aurelius one of the greatest Roman emperors, he was also one of the greatest philosopher kings.

This book is his personal diary (never meant to be published) and gives us a great insight into how the most powerful man on the planet wanted to live his best life.
