A couple of days ago, I made time to search for inspiring books. Not novels this time, but books on business, entrepreneurship and personal growth.
It seems like I'm not the only one, who was out to have an inspiring read during vacation time :)
I started my search on Facebook. Here I found several friends asking people for book inspiration for the summer. On LinkedIn people were also more than ready to share their best reading experiences.
On my own book shelf, there were already four books waiting for me:
4 Hour Work Week and Tools of Titans by Tim Ferris
Sprint - Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days by Jake Knapp
Business Model Generation - A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers
by Alan Smith, Alexander Osterwalder & Yves Peigner
Here is what my friends are recommending in the three areas:
Start With Why - How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action by Simon Sinek
Hooked - How to Build Habit-Forming Products by Nir Eyal
The Success Principles - How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield
The Compound Effect - Jumpstart your income, your life, your success by Darren Hardy
The Way of F**k It - Small book. Big Wisdom by John C. Parkin
Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy by Sheryl Sandberg
