We know that an entrepreneur’s mind is occupied with so many thoughts and his or her time has to be split between the business, which takes a lot of time and family and friends, who want you for themselves. But you still have to read a bit, to be in the loop and to learn from others.
So we propose you a list of 5 books which you should read this spring. Come on, there are at least 6 weeks before summer starts, and hey! you can extend the period and read them during summer too.
- Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers by Tim Ferriss.
This book, written by the one and only Tim Ferris, author of The 4-hours work week, is an interesting read since Ferris interviewed more than 200 of the world’s most recognizable figures in business, sports, academia, the military and every other industry on his show. Financial Times says “Tools of Titans… is the perfect read for obsessives wanting to boost their new year productivity.”
- Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble by Dan Lyons
This book was an instant new York Times bestseller, and of course, it was. Written by a seasoned journalist who left his job to work with Hubspot, takes us into the world of “devilish angel investors, fad-chasing venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and ‘wantrapreneurs.’”
- Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger
Berger in his book studies anything that goes viral and identifies the basic principles that operate when something goes viral. This book is engaging even though you might think that some of its ideas are pretty obvious, in turn, it is an interesting anatomy of how something can become viral.
- The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson.
We’ve heard people saying this is one of the best books they’ve read. And we have to admit, the title sells this book to anyone. And if you read this article written by Mark Mason, we bet you are curious to see how the rest of the book is. As good as the article, we tell you. And the fact that this book teaches us how to embrace our fears, our faults to begin finding the courage, and honesty, that we need using a language that could be called raunchy, just to give it a bit of humor keeps engaged.
- Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike by Phil Knight
This book is recommended by Bill Gates. And that would be enough, but the truth is that this book is so well written, so exciting and interesting that you really miss a great read. Especially that Knight tells us his story, warts and all. It is one of the best choices for those who want to head into business since it is such an inspirational book.
