Whats your favourite book about entrepreneurship and personal development?

My favorite one is The One Thing by Garry Keller and right now I'm reading a very interesting one:

Little Black Book of Entrepreneurship
Most of books of entrepreneurship and personal development talks about success people or stories. This one talks about failures, so you dont fall on them. Its good to know success stories but also, is good to know where people fail.

Also I like Unlimited power by Tonny Robbins.
One of my goals in this next 2020 is to ready at least 15 books.

Books are important, they teach you and they can motivate you when the motivation is hard to find.

I dont use to read in the past since the school didnt show me the correct books. But since I bought my first one, I cant stop reading and learning.

Reading is so important, If you dont trust me, ask Bill Gates or watch his documentary x) or whoever who have success, most of them use to, and actually read a lot.

My favorite self-development books:

-- DotCom Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Growing Your Company Online by Brunson, Russell

-- Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Tracy, Brian

-- Change your Life before Breakfast
-- Rich Dad Poor Dad
-- Rich Dad's CASHFLOW Quadrant: Rich Dad's Guide to Financial freedom
by Kiyosaki, Robert T.

- Think and Grow Rich: The Landmark Bestseller Now Revised and Updated for the 21st Century by Hill, Napoleon

(I love reading books, but this year is my first experience with self-development books, I've read just these books, and I suggest Robert Kiyosaki's books, he's my favorite until now)

I used to read a business/mindset book every 7-10 days but stopped about 3 years ago when I realized I was using it to procrastinate on taking action.

A healthy reading habit can provide some great insights.

Here are a few that have really helped me in my journey so far:

Personal MBA - I read this every few years, distils a lot of high-level business concepts amazingly.

The Millionaire Fastlane
(Go with his new one Unscripted) - Helped me stop looking for short term gains and start investing and building actual business assets.

The Miracle Morning
- Helped me refocus after I bought my first house. I was feeling lost because I had worked for 4 years solid to make it happen. A bit woo-woo, but having a structured morning is something that's stuck with me though.

Don't Make Me Think
(Steve Krug) - Makes you think like a web UX expert and have real empathy with your users and visitors.

How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie

This book helped more in my personal life and meeting strangers. Can have people crewing my ear off in minutes.

Good luck with your goal EL!

I really appreciate if you can make me a very very short resume about what they talk in their books.

"The hard thing about hard things" took my attention.

No way, you read Illusions? I thought I was the only that has ever read that book (an incredible piece of literature).

For those wanting a good read, here's a free PDF of the book.

Ace on the RIver, An Advanced Poker Guide. Its a short read and really focuses my game. I always win after reading this book. Need to reread every couple of months to stay grounded.

.

Messiah's Handbook: Reminders For The Advanced Soul sits right by my mouse. ;)

Illusions was a life-changer. Don Shimoda will forever be my hero. Nearly all of Richard's other books as well (Jonathan Livingsotn Seagull, A Bridge Across Forever, One, There Is No Such Place As Far Away). I used to brainstorm with Richard et al. in a Compuserve forum years ago. Good times.

Yep. Barry is an outstanding poker player and a helluva human being. Zen And The Art Of Poker is another good book.


There's a good "Phil Ivey" book I read quite some time ago but I can't remember the title.

By him or about him? I don't think Phil has written a book (or will).

Not sure if it's available in English, but it's called "LEGO" and it's about the whole history of LEGO, and goes really in-depth about the business side of it.
