    The list of top 10 inspiring books for entrepreneurs. Books are food for the soul and an entrepreneur needs to be careful what he feeds his soul. Here are a list of timeless classics and best-selling books that people across the world have found useful to motivate themselves and grow as entrepreneurs.





    Jack Canfield is best known for his Chicken Soup for the Soul series. In this book, he mentions the 25 Principles of Success – that have been a common thread among the most successful people from all walks of life. This will top the list in Collegefallout’s books for entrepreneurs.

    “Simplicity is a complex form of sophistication“. The best selling book “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson, M.D. is a simple book and yet, reveals the most profound truths of life.

    I am sure that this book would not require an introduction to most of you reading this list. Admittedly, one of the most popular books for a person who aspires to get wealthy. It was first published in 1937 during the Great Depression and it still continues to be among the most best-selling books in the world.

    A very well known personal finance book that talks about the extreme difference in the thought patters of someone who is enroute to be a millionaire and someone who is stuck in a rat race. It is inspirational and definitely worth a read.

    Losing My Virginity autobiography book review of the business book by the Virgin entrepreneur Richard Branson.

    This awesome book by Guy Kawasaki is definitely a must read for anyone starting a company.

    The 4-Hour Workweek is how it’s all about making enough money to be happy (and then spend the rest of your time living your life) instead of making as much money as you can. This book will make you re-think a lot of your assumptions about priorities and life.

    Thanks for posting. I read rich dad poor dad and started on Think and Grow Rich. It's interesting that many of the same concepts are presented in both books. Hoping to read the 4-hour work week soon.

    I think the best book to read is the one that you write yourself filled with your own experiences and struggles and then later go back to it, read it and learn from it.

    -Those are interesting books though.

    Is Richard Branson's book well summarized by his quote "Screw it, let's do it!"?
