Reading is underrated. And if you are an entrepreneur, it is almost a must. And why? Because, it helps you gain perspective, better understand your markets and develop an entrepreneurial mindset. One need not always read non-fiction or business-related stuff to come up with a creative solution. There are hidden gems even in fiction and fantasy.
Let’s have a look at some must-read books for Entrepreneurs:
1. Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance
The definitive biography of one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time. Ashlee gives the reader a first-hand account of Elon’s accomplishments and a deep glimpse into what he is on a personal level. He is not God. He is just human like any of us. Better one who strives to play God to change the trajectory of humanity forever. A must read for first time entrepreneurs for loads of inspiration.
2. The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg
A simple yet powerful narrative of why habits form and what we can do to overcome them. Charles uses real-life examples to captivate the reader and you will end up engrossed in all the scientific evidence that’s presented in simple language. If you are looking to break an old habit or form a new one, this is one book you should be reading right away.
3. Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
The story of a young man who embarks on a life long journey to discover the ultimate truth. Although the title may mislead you to assume it’s a book about The Buddha, it is more of a fictional account of the spiritual enlightenment of a man and the process he had to go through to achieve it. Lots of entrepreneurial lessons hiding in there if you can read between the lines.
4. Rework by Jason Fried
A few minutes into the book and you will find ideas that are extremely weird and unacceptable to the clogged brain. Filled with bite-sized pieces of advice, you’ll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank, and tons more counterintuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you.
