David recommends Whatever You Think, Think The Opposite by Paul Arden. It mostly comprises stories of bad-decisions that in the long run proved to be good; people finding out that the secret is letting yourself risk and tread new water no matter the (illusory) danger, ultimately reaping all the rewards. In the end, being different from others also means deciding irrationally, for everyone else tries to be rational and make decisions like that too.
