Books

I’ve been reading a lot lately, almost a book a week, all business related, mostly finance, marketing and investing. I am indeed learning a lot! :) I am looking at buying a house in the next 6 months and so trying to learn as much as I can, as fast as I can. I wake up every morning at about 6am and read for about an hour or so, its amazing how much energy I have these days! I generally like my sleep, but not so much at the moment, I prefer to read.

Last week I finished reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. This book was great to read and very insightful, I highly recommend it!

I am currently reading Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi I am almost finished (this book is also highly recommended) and wondering what book should I read next? any recommendations?

    "Richest man in Babylon", I'll bring it in on Friday :)

  • My book pile is SO HIGH right now and when you mentioned Never Eat Alone it went straight into my Amazon wishlist (slight addiction)

    I love Love is The Killer App by Tim Sanders
    Purple Cow by Seth Godin
    Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko
    Permission Marketing by Seth Godin
    ProBlogger by Darren Rowse
    The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss

    Ugh that's all I can think of off the top of my head!

  • Hey Samm,

    Great your reading heaps, no matter how old you are you never stop learning. Rich Dad poor dad is fantastic... I went to one of his seminars quite a few years ago now,it really puts things into perspective. Robert has quite alot of books on the
    market so if you get the chance read some more. See you next Wednesday.

  • My fave books/authors are

    Tim Winton (esp Dirt Music/The Turning)
    Patricia Cornwell
    Bryce Courtenay (esp April Fool's Day - amazing book about his son who had
    haemophilia and contracted AIDS)

    Also like Marge Piercy's 'Woman on the Edge of Time' - read this in Uni studying literature - feminist literature at that!

    Good photo books - Best Business Practices for Photographer by John Harrington, The Business of Studio Photography (ER Lilley) and Marcus Bell's book Master's Guide to Wedding Photography.
