What are some of your favorite non-poker books that have helped your poker game?
I have quite a few, but I will name three :) What are yours?
Sorry for the Amazon links..it’s just easy to post and has all info there..I am not getting any kind of money from sales or clicks etc, I personally wish amazon didn’t rule the world! They are just darn efficient, lol ok back to topic.

1. Work Clean: The life-changing power of mise-en-place to organize your life, work, and mind,
https://www.amazon.com/Work-Clean-life-changing-mise-en-place-organize/dp/1623365929

I posted about this in a separate topic. It breaks down to life organization and prioritizing.

A beautiful book that has helped me for every situation in life, it is a book of reflection and learning about nutrition, comprehensive awareness applicable to everything including Poker. Regards
"Sugar Blues is a book by William Dufty that was released in 1975 and has become a dietary classic. According to the publishers, over 1.6 million copies have been printed" "Dufty uses the narrative form to delve into the history of sugar and history of medicine "

These help in theory, for me they help tremendously but may not work for every single person, the idea is to explore what has helped each that they have read:)

It doesn't matter what books you read, it matters what you take from them for yourself. You can read a children's fairy tale and get more value from it than from a scientific treatise.:)

I don't read poker books, but I prefer watching videos. Unfortunately, I just don't have enough time to read such books.

Sticking to the OP's criteria of non-poker books that help your game...:)

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
The Art of Thinking Clearly by Rolf Dobelli

For a hybrid book that is as much about pyschology, luck and life as it is about poker, I would recommend The Biggest Bluff by Maria Konnikova
