There are some books that change a person perspective. By changing that perspective, they change a persons life. These 4 books have helped me grow tremendously as an individual and business owner. There’s an old saying that goes something like “Success depends on which books you read and who you surround yourself with”. I agree, somewhat. It’s also a lot of hustle. To put it plainly, these books are awesome.
A friend recommended this book to me when I was 19. It’s a thick book, 1069 pages to be exact, but well worth the journey. I remember ripping through the pages because the story was so interesting. Who is John Galt? Read Atlas Shrugged to find out!
This is another amazing novel by Ayn Rand, and also (like Atlas Shrugged) a brick to read. The book will remind you a lot of your life and how some people are “real” and others are just blowing smoke all day. I actually did a review of The Fountainhead earlier this year.
The Way of the Superior Man
The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida is one of the best books I’ve ever read. Although it can be tough to read Deida’s style of poetic writing, the book speaks volume about being on your purpose. Haters will either say this book is new age or mushy, but actually it is neither. The book is sheer amazing-ness. Despite the title, some girls I’ve met really like this book.
REWORK by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson (the founders of 37Signals) is about new business. It actually really takes down old business tactics, like planning and meetings. I knocked this book out on a 3 hour flight. It’s a page turner and filled with all kinds of information to look back to.
