You must be surprised at just how much the world’s richest entrepreneurs read. The renowned investor Warren Buffet used to read 1,000 pages every single day when he was building up a carrier in investing. Another business magnate with a 10-figure net worth said once that in his whole life, he didn’t come across any wise people who didn’t read all the time. So, you can say that reading is a vastly important habit that entrepreneurs need to develop.
But that does not mean that you read ten hours a day every day. It is impossible to grow a successful business with your nose stuck in a book for half your waking hours. It is because you need to apply as you learn. You need to set apart a specific amount of time for reading and then need time to digest tons of useful information. Following are the few best books highly recommended by billionaires of all times to help with your personal growth, investing, marketing, and many other genres:
