When was the last time you read a good book? It will be extremely beneficial for you to make reading a habit. A book a month, perhaps? It’s quite reasonable. Fifteen minutes a day would do just fine. In a month, you would have spent more than seven hours reading. I would call that a commendable achievement.
Of course, you can say you don’t have time. This is the common pretext. But how often do you skip meals? So why feed your body and neglect your mind? If you are inevitably committed, you can surely manage five to ten minutes a day.
When you open a book, you dive into a pool of refreshing experiences that can do the following: call up a part of you that has been inert for a long time and open your eyes to possibilities you never could have imagined or unlocked on yours.
Reading makes you a better person than you already are. It enlightens you, improves your attention span, makes you observant, and increases your ability to tolerate antithetical viewpoints without necessarily accepting them.
You can begin to discern realities that previously eluded you. You become more composed and also empathetic as your level of thinking increases.

It’s a good. Curtis James Jackson III, aka 50 Cent, the rapper, actor, and business mogul, collaborates with world-renowned author of The 48 Laws of Power, Robert Greene, to publish this insightful work of literature.
The 50th Law explains how you can emerge victorious in the face of fear and seemingly insurmountable challenges.

This is a book for budding leaders and for those who want to take control of their lives.
This is yet another masterpiece by Robert Greene, Mastery is the fifth book in the author’s oeuvre.

5. Rich dad, poor dad
Ah! This one is popular, a timeless bestseller by Robert T. Kiyosaki. It explores what the rich teach their children about money that the poor always fail.
Robert Kiyosaki recounts his life growing up with two father figures: his biological father (the poor father) and then the father of his best friend (the rich father). He talks about the impact they both had in his life and how he became the success story he is today.
6. The richest man in Babylon
This is a book that I really like and that I will always recommend. George S. Clason comprehensively describes the golden strategies for creating, accumulating and retaining wealth.
If there is a book on financial literacy that someone should read and re-read, this one should be at the top of their list.
In my opinion, TRMIB is a must read for everyone from 6 years old to retirement age. Although the book was first published in 1926, it remains highly relevant and engaging in its practical teachings and creative deliverance.
Bonus Book: Since you’ve made it this far, I’ll leave you with a suggested additional reading: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth, by T. Harv Eker. It’s a brilliant book that will wake you up from your unconscious mental slumber.
