I'm not sure about the training books. I really like Purposeful Primitive @Abdul Rasheed already wrote about. I like the Pavel books but I can't pick a favourite, and I think a bigger, more holistic book by him could be in order.
Fiction wise I believe I will have to go with Cyberiad by Stanislaw Lem. I like a wide variety of books but Cyberiad stands out to me.
As for non-fiction, I would suggest classics and Charles Dickens. Masterful, vivid description of characters and environment. I think of such books as "training" for our brain. To improve our attention span, intelligence, vocabulary, patience and what not. Give Bleak House a try, its a wonderful murder mystery. Audible makes it even more awesome.
strength: all Pavel books, especially the old one, when he still used the word "comrade". so many joke is now still being used in Vietnam. And i wander why Soviet never send any kettlebell for their ally. but i disgress.
other: i like novels. i live a boring life, so i love aventures. Alexis Zobra gave me inspiration, so did War and Peace. And i love Geogre Ohsawa books, he is like Pavel- a sensei to me. Anyone serious about Macrobiotics should read his work
