My Top 5 Re-read Business Books List
Category : Positive Psychology
At the risk of sounding corny; I LOVE BOOKS. I am also IMMENSELY grateful to all the people who write them. Through them I have transformed my inner self. I know the results may not be obvious to others but that doesn’t even matter because, well, I learned it doesn’t. From books. Go figure.
Through them, I get million dollars worth of advice for $20. Forget the crazy Zambian Kwacha-to-dollar exchange rates, its still far cheaper than consulting those experts personally. I get years and years’ worth of research results for just a few bucks. I would buy the book for $1,000 and it would still be a few bucks. But most books I get for around $10-$15 on kindle, about $20-$40 for hard copies mostly because I have to pay for shipping too. So anyway, I think I have read enough upto this year. So for the remaining two months and possibly into early next year, am re-reading my favourites. Those I have found most useful and practical. I am sharing them here:
- The E-myth revisited by Micheal Gerber
Do you want to create order in your small business so that you have less stress and are able to scale? This is a must read. I would add Work the System by Sam Carpenter but for the life of me, I couldn’t get through a chapter of the re-read so I stopped but its also great for the same purpose.
- Good to Great by Jimmy Collins
Show me a successful anything and I will show you great leadership. The role of great leadership cannot be over emphasized in business or group success. Am a big fan of great leadership and success so yeah this book is definitely on my re-read list
- How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie
‘The bigger the dream, the more important the team’. I think this is a Robin Sharma quote. You won’t achieve much without getting the full corporation of people. This book teaches you this extremely important skill
- The Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma
There just had to be a Robin Sharma on this list. Part personal, part business book. Man, I love his work. World class. World class mastery. Being your best self. It all begins with you, being a great human being. Doing what really counts in your life. I totally have to re-read that book.
- The Lean Start-up by Eric Ries or The Four-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris?
Ok, I know this is probably cheating when you say top 5 but end up listing 6. Anyway I couldn’t decide between the two so obviously am re-reading both. Tim Ferris’ book is about working less, producing more. Eric’s book is about the minimal viable product concept, great for start ups.
There you go. FYI my actual re-read list is longer. I have others for personal and spiritual growth but if you have a great recommendation for me, comment or you can email me(firstname.lastname@example.org) or whatsapp +260 975-022-655
PS: I have re-read the Science of Getting Rich by Wallas D. Wattles, also Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill but I thought adding them to this list would be somewhat of a null point.
