How to Win Friends and Influence People

More than 80 years since it was released, this book is still rated in the top of all chosen recommended book lists in all chosen media, no matter book rating sites, publication media or online bookshops. In 2011, the book was listed by Time Magazine as one of the most influential books.

In his book, Carnegie explains that success comes from the ability to communicate effectively with others.

 

He provides relatable analogies and examples, and teaches you skills to make people want to be in your company, see things your way, and feel wonderful about it.

 

The skills Carnegie teach you include:

  • Six ways to make people like you

  • Twelve ways to win people to your way of thinking

  • Nine ways to change people without arousing resentment

 

In an interview with reporter, Billionaire investor Warren Buffett says one of his very best investment in life is joining a course taught at Dale Carnegie, who is the author of this book.

 

The book’s advice has helped thousands of successful people in their business and person lives. You are probably the next billionaire, achieve your maximum potential by learning from Carnegie.

The Intelligent Investor

Across many of our selected sources, The Intelligent Investor is listed on the top of all best investment books. No matter professional investor or general public, they all find this book is very influential in investment.

Many of us agree Benjamin Graham is the greatest one in value investing. He wrote two of the founding books in neoclassical investing, The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis. These two books are recommended by many investment gurus as well as receiving a lot of good ratings from general public.

Graham graduated from Columbia University and eventually founded the Graham-Newman Partnership. Warren Buffett is one of his students.

 

Buffett comments on Graham’s book, The Intelligent Investor, “If I hadn’t read that book in 1949, I’d have had a different future.”

 

Since its original publication in 1949, Benjamin Graham's book has remained the most respected guide to investing, due to his timeless philosophy of "value investing", which helps protect investors against the areas of possible substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies with which they will be comfortable down the road.


Over the years, market developments have borne out the wisdom of Graham's basic policies, and in today's volatile market, "The Intelligent Investor" is the most important book you

Phil Knight is a co-founder of Nike Inc., a multinational athletic footwear and apparel corporation, is ranked at No.340 in 2018 Fortune global 500.

Knight was a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He’s firstly with Coopers & Lybrand and then Price Waterhouse in 1965. Prior to work in Nike Inc (formerly known as Blue Ribbon Sports), he’s an Assistant Professor at Portland State University.

Knight is a legend while he was a ‘part time’ entrepreneur during the time working as auditor in professional accounting firm. Then, he was also an Assistant Professor but he quit the job very soon and grow the company into one of the biggest athletic apparel companies in the world.

As mentioned by Inc. Magazine, “Back in 1965…… Knight, only 27 at the time, was an auditor with Coopers & Lybrand in Portland, Oreg. After work and on weekends, he’d load up his station wagon with Japanese sneakers, drive to local track meets, and hawk the sneaks from his tailgate.”

 

In 1965, Knight applied for a position of an accountant and got recruited by Price Waterhouse. He met a big influence to his life – Delbert J. Hayes, who was the leader of his team. Hayes guided Phil in the job which allows Knight to understand different kinds of company’s financials and how they go under, and how the ones that survive flourish.

 

Hayes is one of Nike’s first employees which contributed a lot to its development.

Shoe Dog is a book written by Knight to tell his story.

Candid, humble, wry and gutsy, he begins with his crossroads moment when at 24 he decided to start his own business. He details the many risks and daunting setbacks that stood between him and his dream - along with his early triumphs.

Above all, he recalls how his first band of partners and employees soon became a tight-knit band of brothers. Together, harnessing the transcendent power of a shared mission, and a deep belief in the spirit of sport, they built a brand that changed everything. 

A memoir rich with insight, humour and hard-won wisdom, this book is also studded with lessons - about building something from scratch, overcoming adversity, and ultimately leaving your mark on the world.

 

Knight also shares in his book he only hired nothing but accountants and lawyers to lead the company in early days. The reason behind is these professionals are “proved that they could master a difficult subject. And pass a big test. Most also demonstrated basic competence. When you hired an accountant, you knew he or she could count.

The $100 Startup: Fire your boss, do what you love and work better to live more

To start your own business, you only need $100.

Do you believe it?

The book’s purpose is not telling people how to make “passive income” fast so that you can quit the rat race. Instead, the book talks about real business which be started with only $100 that help you to pay the mortgage, send your kids to school and afford that yearly holiday.

Through a study of more than 50 cases, Chris Guillebeau, who is an author, blogger and speaker, shared with us how to:


- Earn a good living on your own terms, when and where you want
- Achieve that perfect blend of passion and income to make work something you love
- Take crucial insights from 50 ordinary people who started a business with $100 or less
- Spend less time working and more time living your life

 

Michael Ellsberg, a contributor in Forbes, comments the book is a wonderful book as it tells you how to do a real business while you don't need an MBA or a huge investment to do it.

 

If you are looking for a book on how to change your 9-to-5 life into a passionate entrepreneur, it is the book you cannot miss.
