1. Philosophy: The Open Society and Its Enemies of Karl R. Popper. Although those are two Volumes (I and II) the topic is the same. In the first Volume Karl Popper makes a brilliant analysis of ancient philosophers (Plato and Aristotle in particular) and how they influenced our culture till those day. In the second Volume Popper focuses on Hegel and Marx and how they influenced modern times ideologies. Although Popper is the only modern philosopher with a scientific approach the open society is a harsh critique to how those philosophers’ interpretation of the world lead eventually to the birth antidemocratic ideologies. Believe me when I say that this is one of the most mind-blowing texts ever written. In addition Popper’s style is very simple and captivating.

how did it change my life? Popper is one of the first philosophers which look at other philosophers with a skeptical eye. Once you read Popper you realize that also Plato and Aristotle were men and as such they made mistakes. Therefore, you don't take anything for given anymore.

2. Neuroscience:  Soft-Wired How the New Science of Neuroplasticity can change your life – Dr. Michael Merzenich PHD. This book is going to open your mind on how our brain actually works. You will see many myths that you believed true throughout your life bust in the pages of “Soft-Wired”. The book is brilliant since it explains the new scientific findings but also how to improve your life through neuroplasticity. It is really a guide on how to live.

how did it change my life? Adter reading Soft-wired my belief system shifted. I no longer believed to be a fixed individual. In other words I realized that DNA plays a dismal role compared to life and experience. And if you are willing to put the effort you can change yourself at any time in life. Empowering!

3. Non-Fiction: The Black Swan – Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Taleb is going to open your eyes on many topics and human biases. If you read this book carefully, eventually you will understand things about yourself and society in general that you did not notice before.

how did it change my life? It made me realize how humans are biased. Join the modern skeptics!

4. Fiction – The Divine Comedy – Dante Alighieri

Absolutely the best work ever written by any account. Dante Alighieri mixes fiction (he travels through hell, purgatory before reaching heaven) with history. Indeed in this fantastic journey he encounters many historical figures. His guide throughout this spiritual journey will be the Latin author Virgil that he defines as great master.

how did it change my life? Reading Dante is like going back in time and meeting many of the greatest ancient authors and mythological characters. It makes you discover a world that you did not have idea existed. Enlightening!

5. Autobiographies: Anwar El Sadat: In Search of Identity an Autobiography.

The amazing, inspiring and heroic personality, Sadat (former Egyptian president eventually assassinated) tells his story that seems more a tale than a real story. Sometimes reality exceeds fiction and this is one of those cases.

how did it change my life? Sadat story gave me strength. We realize that our everyday challenges are nothing compared to the ones Sadat had to face throughout his life.

Selfish.... generally this word is associated with the bad behaviour of on individual
But is it really bad?
Not really because word self means ourself
Self.... it's the reason of all our relationships
If we don't exist then is it possible that there would be any relationship associated with us? 
The answer is no....so accordingly being selfish is a need 
Something which matter is the meaning of 'self' in your understanding...
Whether according to you it simply means 'you' or it may means 'your family' or 'your relatives' or 'your loved ones' or all your surrounding environment
So now it's good to be a selfish provided that what's the meaning of your 'self' in your understanding

EROSION OF SELF

That moment I just felt life is temptation
It starts.. 
My erosion of self

That moment I shed my tears in front of everyone..
And hope to find a hand over my shoulder of someone..

I felt like a flower which covered with snow.
 struggling inside but externally it glow.

You met me once and left me for your laws
 I started digging myself for my unknown flaws..
 ‎

How can one develops his or her sense of humor :

1. Ability to laugh at self
 
It's amazing how genuinely funny self-deprecatory jokes can be. If you're a serious brooding person who thinks that you're better than the world, forget this genre. But you'll be losing a lot.
 
2. Being able to take things lightly
 
This is the foundation from which you can take off into the world of humour. If you usually get worked up over every single little thing, chances are you're going to struggle to crack a joke. Let's face it; you'll be in no mood to think of anything funny.
 
3. Enjoy being the cause of laughter
 
Almost every single funny person I've ever met has this trait. There's a certain pride and selflessness that's part of being able to make people laugh. When you get addicted to that 'high', you'll be digging out every opportunity to make people laugh. There're not too many better things in the world than seeing people around you uncontrollably laughing at something funny you said.
 
4. Educate yourself
 
The lesser topics you know, the lesser genres of humour you can explore. There's a reason why all people with a great sense of humour are informed and intelligent. It takes much exposure to the outside world to be able to make most jokes. If you're a quiet, silent guy, who likes to shield himself in the darkness of your room, you won't have too much room to play with. Literally.
 
5. Learn from the experts
 
Watch humorous movies. Watch stand-up comedies. Watch funny soaps. The trick is not to watch with the ulterior motive of trying to learn the art. I always tell people who want to learn English to avoid watching films with that motive in the back of their head. It's when you truly immerse yourself and enjoy something that your mind automatically picks up certain things. This way, the whole exercise also stops seeming like work.
 
6. Enjoy conversations and experiment
 
Face it, you can't say a joke if you don't enjoy conversations. Learn to be open-minded, and talk and listen to people. The more you talk, the better you'll get at it. Similarly, the more you joke, the more you'll discover your area of strength. Experiment. Try various genres. Word play, sarcasm, slapstick ... you'll figure out based on people's reactions what your strength is. The more you play, the better you'll get. Also, remember: There aren't too many things in the world that you cannot joke about.

7. Timing: Strike when the time is right. You need to know when is the opportune moment to unleash the humor Kraken. 

8. Quick thinking and Wordplay: "Most important part of English language are punctuations. They are the ones which differentiate 'I helped Uncle Jack, off a horse' from 'I helped Uncle jack off a horse'".

The Chronicle of irony and sarcastic humour:

There's two main types of bad sarcasm.

The first kind is where no one knows you're being sarcastic. This lands you in a real life Poe’s law where you need to convince people after the fact you were being sarcastic. Not funny.

The second kind of bad sarcasm is where you need to completely change the way you say something just so people know you're being sarcastic.

True sarcasm, the mastery of sarcasm, is where you are able to make it obvious you're being sarcastic, while saying it like you're serious.

The only other thing to master once you've got that is targets. Be sarcastic towards someone who you know is going to not only get your sarcasm, but find it amusing. If you can insult someone and make them happy at the same time, you've got it.

Irony is a form of humour that in a funny way describes a situation in which the outcome is opposite to that which was expected. It is often used as a tool within a satirical or sarcastic construction.

Satire is a means of humorously ridiculing a group of people by mimicking their activities in a way that reveals and exaggerates their faults and flaws.

Sardonically a form of mocking insult, it is a cynical, disdainful jibe.

Sarcasm is a form of insincere speech which on the face of it appears to suggest one thing whilst quite clearly implying another. Sarcasm critically relies on its delivery to be effective.

So irony is a humorous incident, sardonic a contemptuous disdain and satire and sarcasm are humorous constructs that may make use of irony and sardonic phrasing.

Any and all can be used in conjunction with each other; a satire can make use of irony and sarcasm, a sarcastic response can be based around a satirical concept.

Simple?

When using sarcasm there are critical factors that must always be considered. The first to understand is that while sarcasm is fundamentally an insincere response or proposal, it is most effective when all parties (though not necessarily the target) are aware of its underlying truth. So it has to be sincere in its insincerity; you are deliberately lying and letting others know that you’re lying.

The second point and one that requires practice, a certain amount of acting skill and a little mischief is the delivery. Without a polished delivery, the sarcasm, however well thought through and funny, will fall flat on its face and its user open to ritual slaughter. The traditional, ‘true’ delivery is a deadpan, matter of fact response without inflexion or emotion (Basil Fawlty), this has over the years been added to by an overly polite, courteous and brightly positive version that embellishes and exaggerates the point being made (Blackadder). Finally there is a self-pitying, defeatist declaration of the situation one find one’s self in (Victor Meldrew). Both can be either abrupt or quite verbose, it doesn’t matter and should be tailored to suit the occasion.

The third point and one that would seem obvious is that it has to be funny.

Do not over use sarcasm as this will dilute the overall effect, but do use, as explained with satire and irony or preferably a sardonic and pithy riposte.

Finally and crucially it ‘really’ should be used with care as, if used with an overly aggressive or insulting manner and without fair consideration and compliance for the chosen target it can become too hurtful and a device more typical of bullying.

As outlined by Jake Williams in his answer ‘If you can insult someone and make them happy at the same time, you've got it’.

P.S : Sarcasm can be dangerous, try at your own risk! (Saying this from my personal experience)
