What are the best business management books for entrepreneurs? What are the best selling business books recommended for entrepreneurs? What books did i read to become so knowledgeable about business and investing? Well, I advice you read on to find out. It is no longer news that the reading culture is dying among youths of today.

Most people today would rather spend not less than 5hours on social media or watching TV than reading. In fact, people don’t read nowadays and this is a very sad development. Now as humans, one of the greatest assets we have is our brain and our brains can only give out what we put in it; and one of such ways of equipping our brains with information is by reading.

“Be as careful as to the books you read as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter.” – Poxton Hood

“Be a life long student, read as many books as possible.” – Nelson Mandela

As an entrepreneur and investor, I want to honestly state that I wouldn’t be where I am today if not for the books I read. Books are the reason I am an entrepreneur today and books are the reason why I am a success today. When I started out as an entrepreneur, I had no idea, no money, no skill, no experience and no mentor. Almost everything I know today about business and investing, I learned from reading books.

Now on several occasions, people have asked me to recommend books to them; this article is a response to such calls. So without wasting your time, below are the some of the books I have read, that got me to where I am now. Some of these books are in my private study and some are in electronic format.

“Study the past and you will know the future.” – Chinese Proverbs
