Not sure it’s for everyone, but I’m sure it improved my way of thinking. It’s a book called Drug of Choice by Mark van Stratum, https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06X9C6MJ6/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=...

In many ways him and I came from similar backgrounds, only his situation was in many ways more harsh. Losing his one arm as a kid, growing up in a bad neighborhood in Holland, becoming a drug dealer, everything in his life was heading the wrong way. But he managed to pull himself together, leaving the country, training himself to achieve the most amazing life.

I read it without knowing anything about it, which I can recommend (so sorry for these first spoilers, but there’s so much more I won’t spoil).

I’ve also read Mans Search For Meaning, recommended in 12 Rules For Life. Also good, I agree.
