I am an avid reader and read a wide variety of books to enhance my ‘cognitive horizon’, ‘focus’, and communication skills. I can confidently say that these are the books that you shouldn’t miss and definitely read in your lifetime. I read about 40–50 books a year and a good mixture of both non-fiction and fiction. I like to read books though which I learn something useful or if I enjoy the book. I always tell people that there are millions of books out there, if you don’t like them move on to the next book. I am extremely particular about the book that I chose and read. I love the concept of reading a book that makes me think about the different viewpoints and angles of the book.

7) The compound effect by Darren Hardy
How to win — every time! The no.1 strategy is to achieve any goal and triumph over any competitor, even if they’re smarter, more talented, or more experienced. Never really thought deeply about the significance of compounding although it’s a concept one deals with in one’s daily life. It can be taken for granted as a result. This book crystallises the idea that by setting targets and then starting with a small actionable step, the end result can be amazing. The concept can be applied to absolutely everything. Be warned it not only acts for positive rewards but also negative results should one take negative small action. I consciously live by the concept now as it forces you to think about what you wish to achieve, and that instills commitment rather than blindly acting or reacting. Great book.
6) Good to Great by Jim Collins
Good to great summarises the findings from extensive research into what makes certain high-performing companies outperform their peers. The findings are both interesting and capable of being replicated by any company that wishes to improve performance.
This book is very concise and full of interesting case studies. It was one of the few occasions when I wished the book could have been a bit longer.
Well researched, well written, well done!
5) The Almanack of Naval Ravikant: A Guide to Wealth and Happiness — Eric Jorgenson (Author), Tim Ferriss (Author)
Getting rich is not just about luck; happiness is not just a trait we are born with. These aspirations may seem out of reach, but building wealth and being happy are skills we can learn.
So what are these skills, and how do we learn them? What are the principles that should guide our efforts? What does progress really look like?
The Almanack of Naval Ravikant is a collection of Naval’s wisdom and experience from the last 10 years, shared as a curation of his most insightful interviews and poignant reflections. This isn’t a how-to book or a step-by-step gimmick. Instead, through Naval’s own words, you will learn how to walk your own unique path toward a happier, wealthier life.
4) The psychology of money by Morgan Housel
The most compelling personal finance book I’ve read. An easy-to-follow blend of psychology, philosophy, and statistics, which effortlessly simplifies what is usually a complex subject.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to feel more in control of their financial future and to sleep better at night.
In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money and teaches you how to make better sense of one of life’s most important topics.
3) Guide to Investing: What the Rich Invest In That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! by Robert T. Kiyosaki
Investing means different things to different people, and there is a huge difference between passive investing and becoming an active, engaged investor. Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing, one of the three core titles in the Rich Dad Series, covers the basic rules of investing, how to reduce your investment risk, how to convert your earned income into passive income, plus Rich Dad’s 10 Investor Controls.
2) How to become a people magnet by Marc Raklau
Marc Reklau reveals the secrets and psychology behind successful relationships with other people. Success can mean something different for each person, there is one common denominator: other people.
The most successful people, quite often, aren’t the ones with superior intelligence or the best skills, and the happiest people most times aren’t smarter than we are, yet they are the ones who have the greatest people skills.

1 )Atomic Habits by James Clear
People think that when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions: doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early, or holding a single short phone call.
James Clear has a way of presenting information and ideas in a way that just seemed to instantly make sense to me. I struggle to stay focused reading even a few pages if a book isn’t interesting — and I finished this book in two sessions across two days. My brain felt like a sponge and just soaked up the information with ease. Definitely, a must-read and top book in all recommendations.
That’s all folks, and hope you would enjoy the recommendations. Please, do not forget to subscribe, clap and comment. Follow me for more recommendations and many other interesting topics.
