    My old boss (worth approx $50M) used to swear by the lessons in a few books,
    In no particular order;
    The secret
    The richest man in Babylon
    How to win friends and influence people
    The 7 habits of highly effective people

    Iv read them all myself (as most people have let’s be honest) and recommend everyone read them for lessons on success.

    OUTSTANDING Book i am currently reading —Highly Recommended: Tools of TITANS -The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons and World-Class Performers – by Time Ferriss; Forward by Arnold Schwartzenegger – who starts off by declaring: “I am *not* a self-made man.”

    Outstanding …

    As a man thinks that
    The science of the mind
    The law of success in 16 lesson
    The hero and the outlaw
    Think and grow rich
    How to win friends and influence people
    The richest man in Babylon
    The strangest secret
    The science of getting rich
    Wealth keeping it in the family
    Family fortune

    You don’t only read about success. You need to also how the generation wealth are protecting their wealth. And start to create the mindset for and a long-term wealth builder.

    But it is not only reading it once than your done. I have read these books for years and even have the audio version on my phone and computer

    Even now I have the financial freedom I still listen to them and reading them for the last 10 years.

    Only 15??
    Well, here are the ones I’ve read in the last year (probably more than 15):

    -“Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill is kinda foundational.
    -“Outsmarting The Devil” by the same author may change your life – well, any & all of these can/WILL.
    -“A Happy Pocketful of Money” by David Cameron Gikandi is EXCELLENT…
    -“The New Psychocybernetics” by Dr. Maxwell Maltz is life-changing.
    -“Zero-Resistance Selling” also by Maxwell Maltz.
    -“The Secret” by Rhonda Byrnes is a good short read.
    -“The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles is an OLDIE (1910), but a goodie.
    -“The Leader Who Had No Title” by Robin Sharma will make you the BEST in your organisation.
    -“The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” also by Robin Sharma is a great fictional piece incorporating timeless truths woven throughout.
    -“Extraordinary Leadership” by the same is good too.
    -“Do The Work” by Steven Pressfield is FANTASTIC.
    -“Ask & You Will Be Given” by Esther Hicks is AMAZING
    -“Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki will help change the way you think about money….
    -“Sam Walton: Made in America” by Sam Walton helped me see some of the traits of running a business in a competitive marketplace…
    -“Grinding It Out: The Story of McDonalds” by Ray Kroc is inspiring.
    -“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey is gr8!
    -“How To Win Friends & Influence People In The Digital Age” by Dale Carnegie & Associates is a 21st-century take on a 20th-century MASTERPIECE…
    -“The Magic of Thinking Big” by David Schwartz is key…
    [How many is that??]
    …these are all some of the books I’ve read in the last 18 months… GREAT STUFF!
    On Deck is definitely
    -More by Esther & Jerry Hicks,
    -“The Code of The Extraordinary Mind” by Vishen Lakhiani
    -“The Richest Man In Babylon”
    -…and others I can’t think of at the moment…

    I’ve read THE WEALTHY BARBER and THE WEALTHY BARBER RETURNS, they are well written and very easy to read, they are full of good information on developing wealth no matter what where you stand in life. I would highly recommend them, David Chilton has been in the personal finance advising business for over 30 years and knows what he is talking about.
