What books are you reading?

137 replies
I read at least a couple books on marketing, persuasion,
copywriting a month. Sometimes I re-read things I've
read before.

Here are 3 I've read recently:

1. "The 4-Hour Workweek" - Timothy Ferriss - over-rated. It has some
provacative ideas in it but if you've been around IM for awhile much
of it won't be that informative. Recommend you get it from the library
rather than buy.

2. "The Twelve Factors of Business Success" - Kevin Hogan, Dave Lakhani, Mollie Marti -
simply awesome book on what success really requires. Questions and dissects
the common homilies and really gives it to you straight. Very critical-thinking
oriented. This is one I'll be mailing to people in my coaching program.

3. "The Closers" Ben Gay III, James W. Pickens - easily the most intense
and controversial sales/persuasion book I have read. It's ethical but it
discusses dirty tricks too. Treats the sales process like a battle, very
much like Art of War type stuff. If you read it with an open mind it can
take your thinking/ethics to a whole new level. If you are a knee-jerk
person about what is "right" in selling and business you might over-react
and throw it across the room. Not for wimps. High recommended but
advanced - if you do sales and need to be better it's good. For curiosity
seekers it probably won't make a lot of sense to you and might cause
you to perceive salespeople incorrectly.

    I'm not reading marketing books at the moment, although I share your opinion: for who
    is working in the marketing arena it is of paramount importance to be informed, to read
    regularly and as much as possible (not at the expense of doing marketing rather than
    just reading about it ;-) and also to re-read the best book you've read, which maybe
    you read too long ago... it's easy to forget stuff and quite hard to know that you're forgetting
    something!

    But in my case (not working in marketing any longer) right now I'm reading:

    * Hardcore diaries - by Mick Foley (wrestler and author of 4 bestsellers)
    and
    * Various reports by John Pilger, the BEST investigative journalist of these days, bar none.
    In fact, possibily the last real investigative journalist still writing...

    Last week I read Integratin Marketing by Mark Joyner and next week I'll read "Need to
    know" by Paul Myers. Even though I don't do marketing anymore it's still a hobby I
    enjoy reading about ;°)

    Ciao,
    Saul

      For business I've really enjoyed-
      Ready, Fire, Aim- By Michael Masterson- Highly recommended for any entrepreneur, especially those looking to break through glass ceilings with their companies and products. His chapter on creating an OSS was worth the price alone.

      Also really enjoying Influence.

    Currently I'm reading Social intelligence by Daniel Goleman, great book, though I only read 40 pages yet. It's very scientific, so if you're not interesting in reading a scientific approach to social intelligens, don't pick it up, because it's dry with many facts you have to remember.

    the book I read before that one was Paulo Coelho's "The Alchemist", a fantastic book. He manage to twist personal development in a fantastic story, I really enjoyed it and have read it several times already.

    For the record I love 4 Hour Workweek.

    Currently reading:

    Bob Proctor - You Were Born Rich - type of book you want to read over and over again.

    Also reading Buzzmarketing.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[576511].message }}
  • GeoffCruz is right-- 'How to Get Rich" By Felix Dennis is one the best I have read. The best thing about it is that this man is seriously rich and the book is finally written by someone who's been there and done that.

    The others I had read recently are :

    Rich dad's Series -- Almost all of them.
    Getting Things Done -- By David Allen
    Wild Swans - Jung Chang ( Read this if you want to know what pain and endurance is and what it takes to live through trouble)

    I am an info absorber so the books I am currently reading or re-reading are:

    1. Scientific Advertising by Claude Hopkins

    If you want to learn everyday basic ways to persuade people in advertising then this is the Bible. I am half way throught the short copy but have learned so much about advertising.

    2. Neuromarketing by Patrick Renvoise and Christophe Morin

    This book is amazing is how our brains respond to advertising. It talks about the 3 types of brain (formed through evolution) and how to advertise to the primal brain which ultimately makes all decisions. It gives step-by-step instructions on how to persuade people with advertising.

    3. Watchmen

    I.....must....finish.....this.....by.....Friday. Awesome!

    I always like Robert Ludlums novels. Especially the Covert-op series. I would highly like to recommend the following Ludlum's Cover-op Series books and explore the thrilling life and the challenges and struggles that Jonathan Smith, Randi Russell, Peter Howell, Marty Zellerback and the rest of the group faced as they prevent bio-hazards threats being deployed and released in the world.

    1. The Hades Factor
    2. The Cassandra Compact
    3. The Paris Options
    4. The Lazarus Vendetta
    5. The Arctic Event

    Loved these stories.

    So I went to Barnes and Noble last night to have some hot chocolate. I picked up the book Instant Rapport by Michael Brooks and read the whole thing straight through. Although it was written in 1989 it is very insightful. It is about NLP and human communication. I learned so much about communication and people that I am thinking about using some of the ninja tactics in copy and maybe turning it into a course. You should check it out.

      I read 4 hour week and it's cool but a bit over-rate.

      One of my favourite books is 'Ask and is shall be given' by Ester Hicks. Actually, imo anything by EH is worth devouring.

    themindvoid,

    Most people have to read Think And Grow Rich 2-3 times to really pick up the message and let it sink in.

    I suggest you grab yourself a copy of another Napoleon Hill book. It's called "The Laws Of Success In 16 Lessons" Originally it was a 16 volume set and in the last 10 years or so, it was compacted into a two volume set and just recently, it was finally published as a complete single volume.

    It covers all of the work that Napoleon Hill did interviewing over 500 successful people about the exact reasons of their success. The work is cumulative of all of that research, interviewing and data and is a great read.

    Grab it at amazon for 10 bucks...

      Hello,

      Sun Tzu said that it is necessary to know yourself and know the enemy to be successful in your battles.

      I am into spirituality - especially Buddhism. I would recommend that people start meditation to get to know themselves. A good book to get started is The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh. I have read that book many times

        Most books on success, personal development, business, marketing, etc I read from 2000-2005. Tony Robbins, Donald Trump, Richard Branson (Losing Mr Virginity, great biography). And similar books.

        From 2005 onward its been more serious books. Charlie Munger (warren buffetts partner) has a good reading list in the back of his book, Poor Charlie's Alamanack. A few that I've read from that list in the last few years are...

        -Guns, Germs and Steel. Excellent book about why the world is the way it is. Very provacative if you havent been exposed to it. Why has Africa always been poor? Why did the Europeans succeed? It has to do with plant life, animals, grains....all the way to guns, germs and steel in the modern world.

        -How the scots invented the modern world. Not outstanding, but it won't put you to sleep if you didnt like history in school.

        Also, Jim Rogers books are great, Investment Biker, Adventure Capitalist. Investment Biker was published in '92 I think, but he talked about some of the problems the US is having now.

        -Mark Levin's book, "Liberty and Tyranny" was one of the best political books I've ever read. Its not propaganda or sleazy. Its not like Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, or other political commentators. But great overview of how we got to where we are in 2008/09.

        Inspirational books I'm sort of out of. I'd rather study success on my own, and come up with my own theories. Like with Claude Hopkins (My Life in Advertising/Scientific Advertising), I'd rather go through a 2 volume set like that and draw my own conclusions. He worked 18 hour days for 30 years or something. The equivilant of 60 or 70 years today. Do you think he knows a thing or two. And he can teach you a thing or two. Some of the sentences in My Life in Advertising/Sci Advertising, are so profound, its an injustice to skip over them lightly. Books like that require you to think about the magnitude of what you just read and the implications.

          I just finished House of the Spirits which was a good book, and I'm glad I read it, yet I feel like I wasn't moved by it as much as I should have been. I found the narrative detached, so that I did not feel immersed in the emotions and feelings of this story, although the last 50 pages were the most intense, and ironically, my favorite part of the book although it was upsetting to read about.

    I've read tons of books in the past on success. I actually haven't read any recently. You know, all the classics. Napoleon Hill, Anthony Robbins, etc.

    Here are a few that I read in the past year
    - Einsteins Dreams
    - Think and Grow Rich ( for the 5th, maybe more time )
    - 7 secrets to success - Stephen Covey
    - Insurance Commander
    - Over the Top - Zig Ziglar
    - The Bus - Jerome Bettis
    - Millionaire Mind
    - Never eat alone
    - The Secret
    - How Full Is your bucket
    - The Shack
    and probably a ton more, this is just on the top of my head

    I liked the Shack. A friend recommended it to me. It was nice to read an actual relaxing book rather than a "business" book. I didn't have to think much and there was a story to it.

  • My all-time favorite in the personal development field is Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz (I recommend the Dan Kennedy version.) It's a great combination of the science of success (from an experienced medical doctor) and practical tips on how to get better results in your life.

    I've just re-read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. He provides some great insights into why we sometimes resist doing the things we need to do and how to overcome that feeling.

    Best regards

    Look at the books by Dr. Tim Irwin. He is a new writer. His first book was about his experience running with the bulls in Pamplona and uses that as a metaphor for succeeding in business. His most recent book is more of a self-help book in which he analyzes 6 CEOs in the past two years that have failed miserably and why.

      The book shows you how he used social media to build his brand and create a very successful business. It's also written in the exact style that Gary speaks in: Honest, brash and gregarious.

      It's a great read and only takes a couple of hours as it's short and to-the-point.

    All - Reading these books is instrumental in your success. The provide me with inspiration and a drive to keep moving forward. I take from each a nugget or two and apply them to my life and my business.

    My latest read: "When good intentions run smack into reality"
    Author: Brian Klemmer

    It talks about obstacles that often prevent us from obtaining what we want. It talks about the power of keeping your word - and using that to build lasting relationships in both your personal and professional life.

    Just read "Doing Good Works" by a fellow warrior, not going to push any advert here, he asked me through a common thread to review it for him and I was impressed with it very much. It has a bit of everything, from motivation to realizing potential, a tad of the author's personal experience and true to the title, how to use your time, money or anything that you can give towards doing some good deeds for people.

    As a side note, a lot of good material comes out of our fellow warriors in general, yes it's hard to separate as there are many book writers here but there are definitely a lot of creative individuals among us here.

      I thought Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker was a great read.

      It all about why we are brought up from a young age through parenting & schooling to believe exactly what we're taught & to except a future type of lifestyle through programming.

      He goes through the techniques of reprogramming your mind to except new challenges & potential new wealth & to get rid of all the previous negative thoughts & programming.

      It's an excellent book & has to be read at least twice to fully understand how to, go about changing your thought processes & negativity & turn in it into something very powerful & rewarding.

    Just read "Law of Success in 16 Lessons" by Napoleon Hill - found it in eBook version at only 4.97 at napoleonhill-lawofsuccess dot com

    Napoleon Hill's The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons answers every question you could possibly have about what it takes to be successful.

    The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons has over 1,100 pages of success secrets from 500 of America's most successful people of all time. It took 20 years to write but you can start learning from it soon.
    Commissioned by Andrew Carnegie and given personal introductions to the likes of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell and hundreds of others, Napoleon Hill's research and study of successful people made him the best-selling success author of all time.
    Of all of his works, none have ever matched his landmark The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons. First published in 1928, these sixteen lessons became the world's first comprehensive philosophy of personal achievement.
    In Napoleon Hill's own words: "The purpose of the Law of Success course is to enable you to find out how you may become more capable in your chosen field of work. To this end you will be analyzed and all of your qualities classified so you may organize them and make the best possible use of them."

      I think - no i believe that you need to be rich inside of you before to be able to get rich outside....To illustrate this : imagine a tree - with apples - some of them are really nice but most of them are not good - then the gardener decide to cut all the branches where apples are not good...stay only the best apples...Hey sound nice, isn'it? Wrong next season the same tree produce the same apples - some are really nice but most of them are not good...
      The gardener ask Why is possible? One voice in the middle of the sky say to him : Because fruits come from the root...not from the branches...

      You get the idea...then my best book to illustrate all of this and more, really more in fact...are two books in fact.

      First : The power of intention from Dr Wayne Dyer -
      Second : One Decision from Judith Wright

      Once is done, once your root are really good and ready to earn money or be sucessful, then it's time to move on practical book as this one:

    Usually have a few going at the same time, but for business I'm reading 'NO, The Only Negotiating System You Need for Work and Home' by Jim Camp.

    The title is a bit misleading because you'd think it means being hard-nosed but it isn't. It's more a way to keep heated or sensitive conversations on track instead of wandering into the blame-shame game.

This last book is an absolute must for marketers. If you haven't read it yet, go out and buy it today-you will learn a lot from it and will keep learning as you re-read it.

    I highly recommend "Tribes" by Seth Godin as well as "Tipping Point" and "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell. These three books have opened my mind and provided some very different points of view on various facets of human behaviour. Stuff that can really be applied to any vocation or business, but I think more so to marketing.

      Lately, it's been more Jay Abraham.

      I stay up until 10 or 11 listening to every word of one of his Mastermind seminars in the 90's. The biggest problem people have online (or off) trying to make money, is they keep searching for 10,000 new hot ways to make money. People are quick to search for new ways to make hot money. They are not quick going back to old ways. When they should be re-reading or re-listening to something that is proven.

      A diffusion of thought is not going to produce breakthrough wealth.

      Seminar speakers or authors who keep writing book after book after book, have mastered something. Jay has probably mastered 200 or 300 distinctions. They just fly over peoples heads.

      If you don't have the results you want, you haven't mastered the right things.

      Malcolm Gladwell also has some great articles from the new yorker. A good prerequisite for Gladwells material is Robert Cialdini's Influence.

      Tony, I love the title of the book!

      I am currently reading the 4 hour work week. And, I have outsourced some work for the first time. I'm not the best at giving up control. But, I loved the time it gave me AND the person did an excellent job.
      I love Tim Ferris and enjoy his sense of humor. I did not like the 4 hour body as much.
      On another note, I would love to read "Game of Thrones." I know it is off topic but I loved the HBO series based on the book.

    Reading and learning is vital – just don’t forget to put it into ACTION and make use of your new found mind…

    Some pointers to speed up the process:
    • I use audio books – books read (spoken) to me – which I can listen to during what would otherwise be ‘downtime’ (eg travel time, train, driving etc). I use Audible because they have a good range. USA = www.audible.com - UK = www.audible.co.uk
    • Do a Google search for “book review” followed by the name of the book you are considering reading. You can spend 5 – 10 minutes getting an overview of a book. This serves 3 main purposes.
      • You can quickly decide if the book is rubbish and not worth reading more of
      • You learn the main message(s) of the book and usually a bullet point summary will stick in your brain better
      • You can decide if it is worth you getting the full book in paper or digital audio format and soaking up fully

    My last book was “Persuasion Skills Black Book” by Rintu Basu. It is all about using language for better communication – within the NLP and persuasion skill-set. If you want to convert more sales and be more persuasive (whether sales, inter-personal or bedroom!) it will definitely be of interest

    A. He created a multi million wealth in a Market outside of the 'make money' Market so the book is not written to be sold for the benefit of the author.

    B. It is not the usual gung-ho 'how to' book. He tempers his advice with his own mistakes and highlights how hard it is to get rich, and the sacrifices needed to get there

    C. It is an entertaining read, part advice, part auto-biography, so a fascinating read of a guy who has been there and has many tales to tell

    It seems this was the original version of Think & Grow Rich.

    could not be done?
    And what great
    victories has he to
    his credit which
    qualify him to judge
    others accurately?
    - Napoleon Hill

    The 16 principles of success which you must absorb are:


    1) The Law of the Mastermind

    2) A Definite Chief Aim

    3) Self-Confidence

    4) Habit of Saving

    5) Initiative and Leadership

    6) Imagination

    7) Enthusiasm

    8) Self-Control

    9) Doing More than Paid For

    10) A Pleasing Personality

    11) Accurate Thinking

    12) Concentration

    13) Cooperation

    14) Profiting by Failure

    15) Tolerance

    16) The Golden Rule

    One of my all time favorite books is "Ask and it is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. It succinctly explains and clearly demonstrates the method of how one can achieve whatever they want in this life. Definitely a wonderful read!

    I listen to audiobooks while I'm still at the J-O-B.

    I rotate between:
    Think and Grow Rich
    The Science of Getting Rich
    The Law of Success
    Rich Dad, Poor Dad
    Three Feet From Gold
    and Napoleon Hill in His Own Voice

    These books have totally changed my mindset, and therefore my life.

    The "Compound Effect" by Darrin Hardy is the single best success book I have read. It doesn't reveal anything ground-breaking, but it gives true-life examples of how taking small steps toward your goals on a regular basis will lead to success. I listen to the audiobook on a monthly basis, just to keep myself on track.

    I am currently reading The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. I wanted to read this book since I was a child, but I never found the time. But I have started now, and I really enjoy it. I recommend warmly.

    I loved Four Hour Workweek and it transformed my way of thinking into systems and automation and outsourcing. I really like Brian Tracy and Robert Kiyosaki. I like the Trump Books and of course the classics like The Magic of Thinking Big, Think and Grow Rich and The Art of the Start. I havent read anything lately that knocked my sox off but I have been really enjoying watching Tony Robbins on YouTube. That man amazes me!
