Hmm. I couldn't find it but I did locate this post. Probably not exactly what you are looking for but it's a great list of ideas nonetheless. Good luck!!
I can probably give you 3 books that I have read and I would recommend -
1. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
2. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
3. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I'm hoping that two out of ten books that Dan was referring to is what I mentioned here. Good luck.
Thanks for the suggestions James.
I'm not sure about the "ten." Are you familiar with Dan's recommended reading list?
This year I'm reading the book of Proverbs every single month. I've heard of other people doing this, so I decided to try it to. The other stuff is good, but nothing compares with wisdom straight from God Himself.
My list includes:
The Art of War by Sun Tzu
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill
Good to Great by Jim Collins
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (read it from a philosophical angle rather than a fiction angle)
I haven't read The Alchemist but I will definitely check it out.
But my opinion is if you are looking to only read 10 books then you aren't reading enough. Sometimes I will read a whole book and only get one little morsel that made the whole thing worth it.
I have Jim Collins and Robert Kiyosaki's. I have only read parts of it. I thought Robert's book was the expanded version of The Richest Man in Babylon since they talk about the same concept.
To add to one of the books from Dale Carnegie is Stop Worrying and Start Living.
I just recently finished Automatic Millionaire and Start Late and Finish Rich by David Bach. Good insights and applied several techniques from the book, especially the latte factor. I would also recommend those.
Just read a book every month and you'll be ahead of 99% of the population in a couple of years.
