Books

Every book on this page came directly from the mouth (or fingers) of a successful entrepreneur. This is not a deep dive of best-seller lists. This is a list of books that made real impact for an entrepreneur, whether personal or in their business.

Two cool things come from that.

  1. You know the books contain useful knowledge for entrepreneurs, so you already have a higher confidence of a good ROI
  2. You get to cut through the noise of which book had the best PR team and right to which book has the most impact

Did a book not on this list make a huge impact for you? Let us know below.
