    I recently read 2 books - "rich dad poor dad" and "think and grow rich"
    These totally opened my mind.

    Any other literature someone could recommend me ?

    * Any good books for salesman ?

    Please share opinions

    spare time and watch movies, btw who has time to read nowadays...?! it's a luxury man
    i hardly read anything besides the news & IM ebooks
    it's just me, but i never understand people who can really enjoys a book, if i start reading, my head starts to heart after one hour (no, there's no problem with my eyes)
    movies can be relaxing, but books not for me

    Lots of good books out there.

    For sake of relevancy, what about: Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely

    One of the most interesting and valuable books I have ever read. Basically shows you techniques to get, win, take, steal ... anything you want.

    i find this book to be very boring! dunno if it's just me didn't really like it.

    anyway I think you should focus more on taking action from what you have learned (Think and grow rich mainly)
    or re read it every few months.

    people intend to read a book and move on and in few months they are just like before.

    Red Storm rising by Tom Clancy. Good one for when you want a break from the self help stuff.

    The richest man in babylon. If you are a fan of King James english an ye olde style stories, this is a great read. If you aren't fond of reading, get a .mp3 of the book.

    That is an outstanding book. I read it years ago, put the principles in action and if I didn't want to work right now, I wouldn't have to.

    Yup, this is a great book, I highly recommend it too...also all Seth Godin's works deserve a read. And this is something I really enjoyed: "SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance" by University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and The New York Times journalist Stephen J. Dubner. ;)
