Not "business" but extremely helpful in business:

The Art of War by Sun Tzu
Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

Yeh ok , and how many corporations are you guys the executive officer of?

None? Maybe instead of reading about business you should engage in it. Thats all i'm saying.

Read "do the work" pretty short , doesn't pull punches , for some people the resistance is something obvious like too many video games. For plenty of folks its piddling around on entrepreneur forums and reading books about systematizing and outsourcing and all that.

Get a business that makes money and then read a book neccesary to solve a problem , I guarantee if you have a break through and make a solid company 95% of all that reading wont have applied.

Heres a little reality check , without opening the book can you summarize the...lets say 3rd to last book you read? What did you read in june and how did that apply to your journey? What about may 2018?

Your keeping notes right? Maybe flashcards?

No? , My thats a lot of wasted time.

Whats thats saying? "If more information was the answer we'd all be billionaires with six pack abs"
Was silently thinking this but not so aggressively. But then again I don't know who OP is and where he is in his journey so I'm not going to judge.

Most important thing is to just start. Pick up the millionaire fastlane and just do the stuff it tells you. Like literally do what it tells you today, action on it. Instead of just storing information for a time when "you might need it".

Im guilty of it. Looked though my watched youtube videos and maybe about 1.5 years ago I was watching content on how to hire and fire employees, yet I didn't even have an idea, let alone employees or profit Pure insanity when I think back, but when you're taking in information it feels good and feels like you're making progress.

I recommend "Business Adventures", more about investing but full of inspiring business stories.

Here are some in the Sales and Marketing category

System Secrets by Ken McCarthy (about online marketing)
The System Club Letters by Ken McCarthy (about business in general)
Overdeliver by Brian Kurtz (about direct response marketing)
The Secret Of Selling Anything by Harry Browne (best sales book I've read)
Ben Settle's Villains Books (3 short books on persuasion)

A couple general ones:
Obvious Adams (a great short story)
A Technique For Producing Ideas (about using the subconscious mind)
How an Economy Grows And Why It Crashes by Peter Schiff (a short story with illustrations about how our economy and monetary system work)

These are all books I'll be returning to over and over again. Hopefully I can spread the good word to a few people.

Something that escaped a lot of you ( maybe, maybe not ) is that many people use the word "read" in place of "I actually just listened to it on audio".

I am not saying everyone does, but I learned a lot of people that claim many books a month ( 3-5 ) are actually listening to them and not reading.

Does it matter? No. But just letting this out for those of you wondering how it is done. For some reason they still state they "read" when in fact it's audio books.
