Money and Investing
MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom - by Tony Robbins
A very thorough work by Tony Robbins on investing and it gives a very good general overview as well as some more detailed ideas and thoughts (some parts are specially focused on US residents and their tax and retirement system).
Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! - by Robert T. Kiyosaki
A clear perspective of differentiating factors between the rich and the poor - read, learn and execute!
Think and Grow Rich - by Napoleon Hill
An amazing book that you can read over and over again, not specifically on investing but the end result will be wealth (in one way or another) if you use this book as your guiding star. It is truly brilliant even though it was written quite a few years ago.
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine - by Michael Lewis
Michael Lewis is a brilliant author and he knows the market extremely well. This book takes us behind the scenes of what happened during the financial crisis 2008 and how some people made billions during that crisis...
The Intelligent Investor - by Benjamin Graham
A very comprehensive book on equity investing, which goes into details on how to look at financial statements etc. Would recommend some prior knowledge in finance but the book is very interesting for value investors.
The Little Book That Still Beats the Market - by Joel Greenblatt
Joel Greenblatt has written a very easy to read book about the stock market and made simple comparisons and reasoning on why and how to invest in stocks. In the western world today (2017) it is trickier to find the same "value" in companies as valuations in general are looking somewhat stretched due to extremely low rates and a stock bull market.
The Master Key to Riches (Dover Empower Your Life) - by Napoleon Hill
This is a variation of Think and Grow Rich but more of a guide, however if I were to choose only one of the two, it would be Think and Grow Rich.
The Richest Man in Babylon - by George S. Clason
Another great and classic read, which is short and very easy to read. It will give you clear ideas on how to keep your money and how you can make them grow, even if the examples sometimes are a bit dated. A nice short read that still makes you think!
The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life - by Alice Schroeder
Warren Buffet is a true legend within the investment world and this book about him and his life is quite comprehensive so if you are into investing, you should read this book!
Unshakable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook - by
Tony has interviewed some really successful investors and tried to condense it into this book so that we can all benefit from their experience. If you can learn from the best, you should! Though, I would probably read his other book Money Master Game first as that gives you a very thorough run through and if you would only read one of them, I would probably go for the first one but this is still a great book!
Sales and Marketing
The Sell: The Secrets of Selling Anything to Anyone - by Fredrik Eklund
When it comes to sales, Fredrik Eklund is a genius in terms of how he has approached the concept of sales. In his book, he explains in a clear and simple way how you should be thinking and behaving in order to be an extremely efficient sales/marketing/relationship person. There are many obsolete books on this topic but Fredrik is hitting the head on the nail again and again in this book so if you want to improve your skills, get his book.
How to Win Friends & Influence People - by
This is another classic which is still so valid in today's environment. The book will tell you how to attract more people into your life, how you get people to like you and how to influence people to see things your way. A brilliant classic.
A hands-on book with lots of examples and spaces for you to write down your thoughts as you read. Message is clear, start to think and act like a "winner" in every aspect of life and you will never be the same again. A very good read which I feel is spot on again and again in terms of how we should think and act to become successful at whatever we want.
