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