A lot of people ask me how do I read a lot of books? how do I find the time to do that? And it’s pretty much about productive speed reading but here’s the problem with that; Without absolutely any information at all 80% of books that I’ve read are not useful. In fact, you don’t really have to read them, they might add some value into your life if you read them but it’s quite limited if you’re not a big fan of books then there is absolutely no reason for you to read them because almost all of these books talk about the same thing sometimes it seems to me that they simply copied from each other seriously sometimes I read an entire book and there is not a single new idea that I haven’t came across before in similar books so it’s literally a waste of time, to be honest so I thought I’m going to save you that time and tell you what exactly you have to read the five books that I’m about to share with you are probably the only books that you ever need to read I’m not exaggerating I might not be the best-qualified person to talk about this but the past seveneight or even more years I literallyread hundreds of books about all sortsof things starting from how to makemoney from how to negotiate and a lot of other things and I think everything thatI have read can be beautifullysummarized into these five books becausethese books are not simply deliveringinformation but rather they are givingyou a practical guide on how to applythem in real life you can apply thelessons right after reading the book infact if you don’t read these books you will literally suffer a lot in your life you will waste a lot of your time on things that you could easily avoid I think I have given you enough introduction so far so let’s just start with.
1. The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene
This is one of the books that had a pretty big impact on my life. I know that a lot of people view this book pretty negatively, in fact, some people even see this book as pure evil. But, like it or not, this is the best book that’s ever written on social intelligence. This book will teach you everything you need to know about how to deal with people, how to make them like you respect your work for you admire, you make people do what you want a lot of people might say don’t you think that business books are more important and as really is no because business is simple get a product and sell and this book is going to teach you how to do that how to persuade people how to negotiate and every other thing that you need to know so the lessons that are taught in this book aren’t only about business but pretty much everything else that’s about dealing with people.
2. Rich dad poor dad
Is by far the most influential group in my life and there is a pretty strong reason behind it it completely changed my understanding of money and wealth I was always interesting that money likemaster fuel but it wasn’t clear to mehow to achieve that it was pretty muchmore like a dream until I like my handson this book because it helped me tothink about the practical plan on how Iactually can achieve that this bookisn’t going to tell you
astery by Robert Greene
this book is unique of itskind it will confuse with your life ifyou don’t know what to do with your lifethey’re simply not motivated then this is the book you have to read it willteach you how to find your passion andhow to master your passion at the end ofthe day we all have to master somethingto achieve some level of success whathappens usually is that your passionabout something you start doing that andyou don’t see any results and then youstart losing motivationand this book is going to tell you whyand how to avoid that in fact if thereis one book you will read out of thislist then beat this one and these threebooks will help you to achieve the kindof success that you usually think aboutit’s more about money fame and this kindof stuff the kind of success that we can inspire the way because we can see thatin other people and we want the samething for us as well but there is a different kind of success internalsatisfaction which is way much more important that the materialistic success look what’s the absolute goal of life why do you want to make a lot of money why do you want to achieve mastery why do you want to have great relationships what is the final goal simple happiness as long as you’re happy as long as you feel happy you’re successful that’s all that you want out of life right and guess what you can be happy without themoney and everything else, in fact, you can have all the money but still notfeel happy for salty it just might not make sense at all and that’s why I want to suggest to you two books that will explain to you why so these are more spiritual kind of books which I think are far more important than the first three books I just told you about.
4. The shortness of life by Seneca
It’s going to change your perspective about life completely. After reading this book you will start appreciating every single small little thing in your life, such as the fact that you breathe. Did you even know that you breathe although that is just a small thing that you don’t pay attention talk we simply cannot live without it when you read this book you will learn how
5. Mindfulness for beginners
it’s basically about stoicism and it’s a very short and practical book simply written and beautifully summarized.
There are actually many other books that I wanted to include in this list, such as, The 50th law, the seven Habits, the power of habit, and many more…
But, these five books are much more important and valuable than any other books. You must read this book even if you hate weeding and if by any chance you’re too busy then check out my videos on how to read fast then we’ll definitely help you to read faster and if you want to learn more about these books before reading them I’ve done separate videos about each of these books which you can find in the description of this video except the mindfulness for beginners which I will do in the future and now it’s your turn to tell me what’s your favorite book which one do you think is the most important in this list let me know in the comments below.
