    Hey guys looking for good books about business or marketing that I can read - nothing to do with education eg textbooks and I have read all of bransons and Steve jobs (Walter isaacson) books. Thanks and looking forward to your suggestions. Sorry but no other topic where this would fit :(

    Thanks will see if they have it in my local book store. They are the ones who should be learning IM with no online catalogue.

    Not sure if you want anything that's not related to making money so I'll stick to the books I am going to read and have read :

    - The Narrow Road - Felix Dennis . Heard great things about it, going to read it.
    - The Millionaire Fastlane. Definitely read it, its great.
    - Think and grow rich. Absolutely good book.
    - Ayn Rand's books, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged are mind blowing. Probably the two books you would wanna read if you don't want to read anything else that I mentioned.
    - The Magic of Thinking big. I finished it very recently (two days ago) and I have to say it has made quite an impact on the way I think. Its a great read.
    - Stuff by Dan Kennedy (Recommended to me by my friend, going to check it out soon)
    - Stuff by Zig Ziglar
    - Stuff by Brian Tracy.
    - Driven from Within by Michael Jordan. Which my username is inspired by as well. You'll get to read exactly how Michael Jordan thinks, its not exactly about making money but he talks a lot about winning and the mindset behind it in general. Its as much a book about brand Michael Jordan as it is about his time playing in the court.


    I'm currently reading Man's search for meaning personally. Reading is a great habit and you shouldn't limit yourself to just money consciousness stuff but you know surrounding yourself with such books for a short time can have great results.

    +1 to this one, one of the best (if not the best) business book I've ever read.

    You can get it on Amazon for about $9 I think.
