Mindsight, Daniel Siegel — True stories of real profound changes and healing. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy, Louis Cozolino — in my opinion, probably the best book for coaches out there, although he focuses on therapists
Coaching with the Brain in Mind, David Rock and Linda Paige — I use this for reference. It’s very detailed and complex and perhaps not an easy cover to cover read, but I find it very helpful for looking things up.
The Brain that Changes Itself, Norman Doidge — wonderful true stories of “neuroplasticity” and astonishing ways the brain can find new ways to do things.
Incognito, David Eagleman — also an easy to read book, lots of true stories about how we know what we know.
My Stroke of Insight, Jill Bolte Taylor — a wonderful book about right brain/left brain, written by a neuroscientist who had a stroke. Also TED talk:
The Art of Changing the Brain, James Zull — this may be the best book on learning and the brain for educators.
Your Brain at Work, David Rock — good for leaders, very business focused.
The Buddha’s Brain, Rick Hanson with Richard Mendius — a great introductory book on the brain that weaves in mindfulness and Buddhist wisdom and includes practical tools for personal development.
In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, Gabor Mate — fabulous work on the neuroscience of addiction.
The Master and His Emissary, Iain McGilchrist — amazing, powerful work on the right and left brain. The RSA video is also fantastic and only 11 minutes or so:
Scientific American Mind and Psychology Today
