While it's not necessarily a strictly copywriting book, one of my favorite books of all time is called This Is Earl Nightingale.

I've mentioned in the past this book was written by Earl Nightingale who kind of "by accident" founded the self help book industry. 

I LOVE this book, and feel it's helped me immensely over the years.

The best part is each chapter is between 2 and 4 pages, so you can open up the glossary to any issue you're having and read about it:
