We’ve all heard the common stats that the average American reads about one book per month, but the average CEO reads 4–5X that amount.

Is it a coincidence? Probably not. It gives people knowledge and a new perspective.

Warren Buffet, for example, spends 80% of his time reading. Grant Cardone says that a book may only cost $10–20 but can unlock an idea worth millions.

Here are a few that I’ve read (in no particular order) that have had a significant impact on my life.
