100 Books on Motivation, Self Help & Personal Improvement to Find on a Bookshelf

Watermarked PDF

This is a collection of genuine books that are suitable for a modern setting, or its post-apocalyptic aftermath, that can be used to flesh out a bookshelf, allowing the GameMaster to give examples of what books can be found if asked. These books cover a range of subjects that fall broadly into self help, personal improvement and motivational.

Each book entry gives its name, author(s), publication year and some brief details of the contents. The publication years range from the 19th century to the 21st, with the majority being at the latter end of the 20th century and onwards.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
