Short but powerful and inspirational. A great introduction to the wisdom of Yogananda.
Also a book that would be part of the most important canon of spiritual guidance... This book gives guidance and healing, affirmations and practices that address nearly all of the daily afflictions I can encounter...
This is the kind of book you can read from cover to cover in just a day or two. I also go back to it again and again... more during times when I need it.
I read a passage to start my day everyday. It will help you to understand many things.

Yogananda = Insight (positive and rich that will put a smile in your heart).

Very lightweight uplifting book. I used to read this book couple of pages a day in the morning - and it used to make a lot of difference. Highly recommended for reading in today's high stress, extreme competition world!
This is one that will probably live on my bedside table alongside "Markings" so I can refer to it over and over again... essentially a collection of quotes from Paramahansa Yogananda.
This book is filled with wisdom. Perfect to read a passage here and there.

This is the only book one really ever needs, and that's saying quite a lot.
