“There is no friend as loyal as a book” – Ernest Hemingway
When I read Harry Potter series, I was in a dreamland I must say. I used to read every line and then imagine myself how it might have looked like. Even when reading The Da Vinci Code there was this curiosity as the story built up. This is about fictional novels, but when it comes to personal finance or entrepreneurship books I think it is very difficult to keep the readers engaged. But even there some of the authors have managed it brilliantly. I would love to share some of the book that I have read so far and these books in one or the other way have changed my life for good.
The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
The millionaire next door made me realize some important statistical data. Very neatly put up. It is all about statistics collected on a long run and the approach people have used to become successful. Not sure about the authenticity. Still a very good book.
Stay Hungry Stay Foolish & Connect the dots by Rashmi Bansal
Series of life stories woven together. I bet, you will start hating your paid job and dream about starting a new business and be successful entrepreneur. And there is no harm in dreaming, always dream big only then you will progress. Of all the books, these are the best 🙂
16 Personal Finance Principles Every Investor Should Know & Jago Investor by Manish Chauhan
When it comes to personal finance, I love to read books by none other than Manish. His books are worth the time and money you spend on them. When I say worth the time and money, I mean for a short duration of 4-6 hours you can complete reading the book and then in the same duration you gain a lot. I just love when this knowledge transfer takes place. I urge, all of you to spend some time reading these two books that were game changers for me personally. Hope these books do change your life!
The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses by Eric Ries
This book was honest, articulated and humorous. Loved every thing on this book. This book is amazing for those starting a company, those who already own a company and those thinking about making that move.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.
After all the hype surrounding this book, I read this book last week. Am having mixed feeling on this – I felt the story, characters and narration was flat and there was no emotions at all. Felt too dramatic. Nonetheless the message is quite awesome. Only problem for me was narration. Hope you guys think otherwise.
My Backlog –
Zero to One, The Intelligent Investor, Science of getting rich, Men Women & Money. Hope I will be able to read these as well. Have to make up some time 🙂
Well!! these are the must reads that I would say will bring new thought process in all of you. Gain knowledge, gain money. Cheers to money!
