For readers that are trying to become the most successful versions of themselves, Amazon has released a new version of the company’s “100 Books to Read in a Lifetime Series“. The new list is all about Leadership and Success, and topping the charts at number-one is the new project from Sophia Amoruso called “#Girlboss”.

The book has become increasingly popular since its big debut, Netflix has partnered with Kay Cannon and Charlize Theron to turn the autobiography into a comedy series. Fans will remember Cannon from her enormously popular “Pitch Perfect” franchise, she will serve as showrunner and Executive Producer on the new series.

Also on the list are Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” and Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project,” as well as a few other standouts like Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” and Mitch Albom’s “Tuesdays with Morrie”. Quite a few of the books have been made into movies, including this year’s Oscar contender from Michael Lewis called “The Big Short”.

Readers will also find popular leadership books including “Freakonomics” and “Strengths Finder 2.0,” which is one of Amazon’s all time best selling books, included in the roundup.

“We chose books to help people plan for their futures and/or deal better with their present. The same book won’t work for every situation, or every person, so you’ll see titles sitting beside one another that might not normally share shelf space,” said Chris Schluep, Senior Books Editor at “It was definitely a fun list to put together. A lot of people at Amazon are interested in these types of books, so there was a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from. Personally, this was my favorite 100 Books list to compile.”

We added the Top-Ten below to get you started. You can find the entire list of all 100 books to put on your personal reading list here on
