Best Free eBook & Why

33 replies
What do you consider the best free ebook, and why?

I will go with the Public Domain version of Think & Grow Rich because it has so many foundational principles that have stood the test of time.

        You're joking. . .
        Not really. No matter how much you read, you'll never be able to really know it all. You must always strive to get better and study to become so.

        Basically I was implying that you shouldn't indulge in an "I know it all" attitude and always challenge yourself. The books that will make me better at what I do are those that I haven't read yet. Those I have already read have indeed helped, but if I want to evolve I must always look forward. Plain and simple.

        Regards,
        George

        P.S. Sorry for the grammar nazi bit.

          Of course it's not the information you get, but the actions you take in connection to the information, and therefore you could argue that only books you have read matter.

            Touche.

            Finally a fellow philosopher.

            The fine print however is that I don't think in terms of how books help, but in terms of how will they help me. And that's a world of difference.

            In the end though you are right. Knowledge does not equal action and realizing/acting upon this is perhaps the most important thing that IM'ers can do. To misquote Neil Morgan from another thread floating around here: "Stop procrastinating and go make yourself some money".

            Best regards,
            George

              This reminds me of a word that I first heard in The 4 Hour Work Week, Procrastabating. I love that word because it is blunt and you know exactly what it refers to. Right now, for me, it probably means posting these "fun" threads on the Warrior forum instead of taking massive action to accomplish a giant goal. I better get back to it

    Definitely Machiavelli's "The Prince" - I read it back in high school and, along with Sun-Tzu's "Art of War" consider it not only a classic, but mandatory reading for any businessman facing competition (that is to say, practically every businessperson).

      Me too considering how old it is it still makes my spine tingle.

    Hey, sure agree with you Think And Grow Rich got to be the best...besides the books written by my mentor that actually make you question why on earth would
    he give them away for free! Everybody's giving loads of ebooks for free it's almost
    sickening, but the ones given by my mentor actually drew me to him and now I am on a life changing journey...it just happened...now I know I have found the way. As most can tell you, it's hard to go it alone on the internet if you really want to make money, so I really feel lucky ;-)!

    I'd say "The Science of getting Rich" by Wallace Wattles.

    It's certainly one of those books that makes you stop and change the way that you look at things.

    Think and Grow Rich? That is very funny. Have you ever studied Hill's life? He thought and thought and, well, was a wage slave for Clement Stone. But of course that was after he drained the bank accounts of several wives and in-laws.

    However let me ask, by foundational principles did you mean the "transmutation of sex" or the "meditation for input from the universal mind?"

    I think I'll stick with "The Secret."

    Just kidding, how about a real business book by someone who was actually successful? Just saying.

      Mate, I hate to say it, but there's a crapstorm heading your way.

      As for books, I usually follow my grandma's advice about priests: "Don't do what the priest does, do what the priest says".

      And speaking of The Secret, it only takes 4-5 minutes to get it, which I kindly invite you to spend watching the next video (BEWARE metal ahoy)

        Thanks geegel for this useful post.
        We must not concentrate on what the priest is doing BUT ON WHAT HE IS SAYING. Therein lies our progress.Tnx

    Thanks. I know but someone had to say it. I can hear Jack in "A Few Good Men" screaming "you can't handle the truth."

    Someone here has said that the only way to succeed is accurate thinking - that we can make excuses or make money but we can't do both.

    TAGR has a cult like following. I get that. However if the creator of the system cannot himself succeed with it I'll look elsewhere. Do you want Jack Welch advising you or a failed CEO from GM for example?

    TAGR has good principles inside - like focus, dedication, commitment and hard work. However to my knowledge there isn't even actual proof that Hill did his Puff the Magic Dragon 50 year trek. In one way TAGR is like the US Constitution: everyone says they love it but few have actually read it. TAGR (at least the original version) was full of mysticism, dubious science and the cultural baggage of its time. Has anyone tried to transmute some sexual energy recently? Is that in your business plan? It's not in mine for sure!!

    To each their own. You can pick a substantial book (Like "The Prince" or "The Art of War," both also mentioned here), or you can read Dianetics, oops sorry meant TAGR. That's why they make 31 flavors at B&R.

    At the risk of sounding like I'm sucking up, Paul Myers wrote a great little ebook called the "Need to Know" ebook.

    I found the section on wantpower to be enormously valuable in my business. That section helped immediately clarify some vague notions I had that were already working for my business, but not as well as they could have. It was like going from a dim, flickering lightbulb to a brand-new halogen bulb.

    Add me to the "Think and Grow Rich" bandwagon lol. Its absolutely one of the best books I've ever read (along with "The Richest Man In Babylon"). Amazing how a book that was published long ago still holds true today.

    On a side note, I found "Think and Grow Rich" for free in an audio version, which came in handy with an iPod and plane trips lol.
