    I’ll edit this in the morning with a properly formatted recommendation, or two (or three).

    For now just an observation...the first 2 books were mindset/personal development books, yes, very important.
    I’d love to see more business focused books for the next one.

    Influence by Cialdini, Zero to One, Lean Start Up...something along those lines. I think those will garner some great talks amongst the collective here.

    Actually, I’ll just format it now, and yes, it’s a little mainstream, however, it’s importance cannot be overstated.

    How to Get Rich by Felix Dennis

    It's one of my personal top 3 business/philosophy books. It's very similar to the Millionaire Fastlane in some aspects and unique in some other aspects (for example, the author cautions against losing yourself when pursuing wealth).

    Marketing/Business gurus have good advice. Their tactics can work...IF you are in a position to effectively use them. 98% of people NEVER will be in this position and thus listening to business gurus is a total waste of time. If you have bad focus, bad work habits, and a bad brain you will never ever be able to compete and building a business will never be possible. If your brain, body and focus is weak, you will be stuck and poor.
    If you fix these things, building a business becomes easy.
    If you are agree please like this post.

    My recommendation is ‘The Power of Habit: Why we do what we do in life and business’ by NY Times journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Duhigg.

    258C11D1-B84F-476F-9ABA-074D738733CC.jpeg

    The Power of Habit is an easy read on one of the most important factors in accumulating wealth and in attaining success in any field.

    This book describes the habits that keep people on the Sidewalk, Slowlane and how to change your habits so you can reach the Fastlane and an Unscripted lifestyle.

    In other words: A must read for any fan of The Millionaire Fastlane and Unscripted who wants help in realizing his or her goals.

    Bruce Lee: A Life

    Not a self-improvement book, just an objective biography about an interesting guy who lived an interesting and exciting life.

    It would be interesting to read it and see what life lessons we all take away from it.

    I've read several of Holiday's books, and enjoyed them all. This one's next on my list. From Amazon:

    The book that Inc. says "every entrepreneur should read" and an FT Book of the Month selection...

    How did the movie The Shawshank Redemption fail at the box office but go on to gross more than $100 million as a cult classic?


    How did The 48 Laws of Power miss the bestseller lists for more than a decade and still sell more than a million copies?

    How is Iron Maiden still filling stadiums worldwide without radio or TV exposure forty years after the band was founded?

    Bestselling author and marketer Ryan Holiday calls such works and artists perennial sellers. How do they endure and thrive while most books, movies, songs, video games, and pieces of art disappear quickly after initial success? How can we create and market creative works that achieve longevity?

    Holiday explores this mystery by drawing on his extensive experience working with businesses and creators such as Google, American Apparel, and the author John Grisham, as well as his interviews with the minds behind some of the greatest perennial sellers of our time. His fascinating examples include:

    • Rick Rubin, producer for Adele, Jay-Z, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who teaches his artists to push past short-term thinking and root their work in long-term inspiration.
    • Tim Ferriss, whose books have sold millions of copies, in part because he rigorously tests every element of his work to see what generates the strongest response.
    Seinfeld, which managed to capture both the essence of the nineties and timeless themes to become a modern classic.
    • Harper Lee, who transformed a muddled manuscript into To Kill a Mockingbird with the help of the right editor and feedback.
    • Winston Churchill, Stefan Zweig, and Lady Gaga, who each learned the essential tenets of building a platform of loyal, dedicated supporters.

    Holiday reveals that the key to success for many perennial sellers is that their creators don’t distinguish between the making and the marketing. The product’s purpose and audience are in the creator’s mind from day one. By thinking holistically about the relationship between their audience and their work, creators of all kinds improve the chances that their offerings will stand the test of time.

    Dennis' book explores some similar topics, but there's plenty more that MJ hasn't covered in his book.

    You'd assume that a book with a title "How to Get Rich" is yet another, generic business book, but in fact IMO it's more of a philosophical book - exploring not only how to get rich, but also perhaps why you shouldn't pursue riches or when to stop obsessing about wealth and shift your focus to something else.

    It's part a how-to book with some really solid advice, and part a cautionary tale - meant to make you think about business, money, and life in a different, more educated and conscious way.

    I see several votes for Felix Dennis's How to Get Rich.

    Although I've already read it, it was such a pleasure to read, i'm down to do it again.

    For a guy who was worth half a billion dollars, he had such a chill jolly attitude, and it really shows in the writing.

    I'd vote for this book to be next, why not :)

    You can win by Shiv Khera . Excellent book .
    I felt so motivated by this book that I scored 99/100 Marks in Maths in Class 10 and stood 1st in my district . I have it with me even now. Good book .

    https://www.amazon.com/You-Can-Win-step-achievers-ebook/dp/B00HQE51N4

    Few Excerpts from the book which I like very much :
    -"Fritz Kreisler, the great violinist, was once asked, "How do you play so well? Are you lucky?" He replied, "It is practice. If I don't practice for a month, the audience can tell the difference. If I don't practice for a week, my wife can tell the difference. If I don't practice for a day, I can tell the difference.""
    -Nothing will take the place of persistence. Talent will not : Nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent . Genius will not : Unrewarded genius is a proverb. Education will not: The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
    -If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it wouldn't seem wonderful at all. --Michaelangelo
    -We need to learn from nature. The duck keeps paddling relentlessly underneath but appears smooth and calm on top. Once when Fritz Kreisler, the great violinist, finished a concert, someone came up to the stage and said, "I'd give my life to play the way YOU do." Kreisler replied, "I did!" There is no magic wand for success. In the real world, success comes to doers, not observers. A horse that pulls cannot kick; a horse that kicks cannot pull. Let's pull and stop kicking. Without hard work there is no success. Nature gives birds their food but does not put it in their nest. They have to work hard for it. Nothing comes easy. Milton rose every morning at 4 a.m. to write Paradise Lost. It took Noah Webster 36 years to compile Webster's Dictionary. Even small accomplishments require hard work and are better than big talk
    -Does Lockheed organization have a reason to believe positively? You bet. Several years ago Lockheed introduced the L-1011 Tristar plane. In order to ensure safety and test the strength of the jetliner, Lockheed exposed the plane to the roughest treatment for 18 months, costing $1.5 billion. Hydraulic jacks, electronic sensors and a computer put the airplane through its paces for more than 36,000 simulated flights, amounting to 100 years of airline service, without one single malfunction. Finally after hundreds of tests the aircraft was given the seal of approval. * There is every reason to believe that this plane would be safe to fly, because of all the effort put into preparation.

    Its about embracing vulnerability and imperfection. Can have a huge impact on males who were raised to believe vulnerability is weakness. Definitely popular but not main stream.
