Think and Grow Rich

By Napoleon HillHill best business books

‘Put your foot upon the neck of the fear of criticism by reaching a decision not to worry about what other people think, do, or say.’

After researching in excess of 500 self-made millionaires, Hill wrote this timeless personal finance book in 1937. Rarely mentioning the terms ‘money’, ‘wealth’ or ‘finance’, Hill’s guide focuses on the importance of mentality above anything else.

Encouraging self-assessment, Think and Grow Rich describes psychological barriers that hold you back from earning fortunes and teaches you to ‘think your way to success’.

Outdated terminology has been faithfully updated to ensure that Hill’s tricks of the trade are kept accessible to a new generation of readers.

Business Adventures

By John Brooks

Brooks best business books

‘To set high goals, to have almost unattainable aspirations, to imbue people with the belief that they can be achieved—these are as important as the balance sheet, perhaps more.’

Endorsed by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, Business Adventures is a charismatic and detailed insight into building a strong business.

Brooks is famed for using in-depth explanations featuring compelling characters in order to convey business lessons. You won’t find listicles or ‘how-to’ passages, instead you’ll discover entertaining and informative chapters detailing the keys to success.

Bill Gates insists that, ‘Business Adventures remains the best business book I’ve ever read’.

Be Obsessed or Be Average

By Grant Cardone

Cardone Best business books

‘If you’re looking for someone to coddle you and make excuses for your lack of success, you’ve come to the wrong book.’

Cardone believes that our preoccupation with work-life balance has given us an excuse to be mediocre. Be Obsessed or Be Average is a reflection of his work ethos; it’s all or nothing.

As a self-made multimillionaire, radio and TV personality, and owner of the Whatever It Takes Network, Gardone knows what he’s talking about. Advising readers to harness obsession and use it to their advantage, this book doesn’t sugar-coat what’s required to get rich.
