Best Books for Entrepreneurs. Some of them are in the category, “must-have”.
Your pc monitor or tablet certainly work as a reading platform, but our eyes read paper material much easier.
Today I will make a list of some of the best books for entrepreneurs which helped shaped me, and also guided me into the entrepreneurial world.
But first let me ellaborate on the subject of why.
Why one should read books on top of all the information which is laid out online:
First off, less clutter.
Better for the eyes.
And also usually more sustainable information. This depends on what you read of course, but stick with me here.
There are many books to choose from and many authors to follow.
First let me start off by mentioning the first of the best books for entreprenurs I remember reading over and over.
If this is the first time you hear about his book and you consider yourself an entrepreneus or simply want to start a small business but lack some guidance and/or vision, then this is for you.
This book takes you far back into the depths of your mind where you visualize and suggest ideas ready to be materialized.
It gives you a mental direction with focus on the task you have set yourself out to do. With this you will have more focus.
And yes it is a MUST HAVE in your collection.
I cannot write about how much this book meant to me because it really is priceless. I have it in written form and on audio. Been trough it several times.
The second of the best books for entrepreneurs is on fire in terms of thinking like a free individual in a fast pace is DRUM ROLL:
This book is very different than most of what you have read in the past, I would assume.
If you are familiar with it then great. If not, you should. This one should be in your collection AND you should follow Tim Ferriss on FB as he posts a lot there about his lifestyle.
And the lifestyle… Is very free. For some controversial. For others, a mind opener/blower or whatever you want to call it. That’s when you can’t put the book down and are getting intrigued by the “off the hook” approach to getting you to enjoy life at low cost, STILL living luxurious and without boundaries and willing and wanting to explore every aspect of life .
Totally another MUST HAVE for your collection.
The third of the best books for entrepreneurs in this post is called “The Ultimate Sales Letter: Attract New Customers. Boost Your sales.”

It’s in the title. Proven Formula for creating an efficient salesletter.

The fourth of the best books for entrepreneurs is called “Words that Sell: More than 6000 Entries to Help You Promote Your Products, Services, and Ideas”

Found it to be of interest even though it touches shopping network ads.
It’s about those commercials you see on tv. You know from the shopping channel.
Insights from this book can be used elsewhere in advertising also.
Very good read.
The Seventh of the best books for entrepreneurs book is called “Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!“.
For those who are new to the game and have not heard of it before… The author is Robert T. Kiyosaki. Get to know him here:Who Is Robert T Kiyosaki?
The story of a kid growing up listening to two fathers. One poor and one rich.
The choices are obvious in some instances, financially, what decision should be made by either one of the two if faced with the same financial dilemma.
Observing this gives you an insight into making smarter choices for yourself.
Book number eight of the best books for entrepreneurs is called “Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions”
Interesting book from Dan Ariely. Get to know him here: DanAriely.com
…Gets into the mind of consumers. When we go out and buy anything we are in a particular mode.
We can predict this but we as far as I can tell we have trouble letting it go completely.
Still reading this one.
Number 9 out of 10 of the best books for entrepreneurs is called “The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business”
Harvard Business school in ONE book. Written by Josh Kaufman. You can visit his site here: JoshKaufman.net
Still reading this one. Impressed over all of the nuggets so far.
Marked so many pages for later reading and writing. Valuable.
The Tenth and last one on the list of best book for entrepreneurs is called “How to Practice Suggestion and Autosuggestion”
It’s an oldie but goodie.
Using brain power, thoughts… You can set yourself in a different vibration. A different mindset if you will. This book is old but covers the study of what you can call self hypnosis.
Author is the late Emil Coue.
I like this one a lot.
It was one of the first books I read on the topic.

Some would say 10 Books for Entrepreneurs is not enough, ever. And I totally agree.
The best books for entrepreneurs are the ones that resonate with you and your desires and make you fired up and makes you take action.
These books do that.
There are more quality books out there but as mentioned, this is an excellent selection for anyone going into entrepreneurship and wanting to have the best start.
If you want to keep on growing then the list should only get bigger.
Take notes of the books in your community. The ones with the highest reccomendations from your must trusted peers would do.
That is, if you cannot find them on Amazon for yourself… There are always some nuggets hidden from your sight so go elsewhere also.
Be sure to TAKE NOTES WHEN YOU READ instead of skimming trough the book for a quick read only to re-read it later and take notes then.
Best way to digest and program the tactics inside these gems would be to take notes activlely.
