      Can't beat Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I reread that at least once a year. Explains the difference between working for others, working for yourself as a JOB (for example, proving a service) or true passive income (for example, selling a product again and again).

      If you haven't read The Millionaire Next Door you oughtta. (explains the habits of the wealthy - in short, actually wealthy people don't appear wealthy, and people that appear wealthy are probably not wealthy)

      MJ Demarco's book is actually pretty good re: internet marketing, although the title is horrible - (The Millionaire Fastlane)

      reading it at least once a year for the fifth time already. best book ever

      at coup
      i read rich dad as well but found it a bit too shallow. he just always gives perfect samples of a real estate biz deal. like i bought a house for 100k flipped it for 200k . its all not that easy . but its def a good start to understand that working for yourself is def better than working for others

      at Jennn
      i loved secrets of a millionaire mind its one of my favorites as well ill checkout The Slight Edge Secret to a Successful Life soon

    "Ask and It is Given" By Esther Hicks... the same writer as Law of Attraction.
    It is a great book....All you need to do is ask and the universe will give once you are vibrationally ready to accept.

      Richest Man In Babylon had the most recent impact. It allowed me to see the full impact of diversifying online assets as well as putting a tiny bit away for long term use.

      Mainly I just enjoy the timeless application of the principles. This isn't something working just in the last decade, but ever since money and things of value were exchanged to create wealth in people.

    As our realities are different,we don't look at something with the same point of view. So a book may had an enormous impact on someone but won't move you a hair .
    Anyways, my favorite books are :
    How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci : By MICHAEL GELB · DELL © 2000 · 336 PAGES
    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People : BY STEPHEN R. COVEY · FREE PRESS © 2004 · 384 PAGES
    It’s Not About the Money : BY BRENT KESSEL · HARPERONE © 2008 · 308 PAGES
    And the list goes on . PM me if you want the full list .

    Time Warrior by Steve Chandler. Each chapter is 1-2 pages long of butt kicking inspiration. Not kumbaya motivation, but the butt kicking kind

    I love it. Feeling sorry for yourself? He'll set you straight. It's perfect for self employed.

      Having read into only Chapter 4, I can say with absolute certianty that A Course in Miracles is the best and most profound book I've ever read and likely to ever read.

      Never before have I re-read paragraphs over and over in awe and complete understanding relishing in each and every page for the value and truth it holds. I understand and relate to it so much, I assume somehow (if modesty were to permit) that I had wrote it myself due to the underlying truths that it brings back to the surface.

      Absolute brilliance of the highest order.

    Macbeth of Shakespeare really had an impact on me.

    It taught me that evil can never win no matter how strong it may appear.

    Here are my views..I regard RDPD highly because I think that is the first book which really started this trend of assests vs expenses etc...it opened my eyes frankly..
    think and grow rich
    science of getting rich ..need no introduction they are arguable the best books on wealt mindset ever....
    moving on..i read extremely horrible reviews about the vinci.. book mentioned above,the 10X rules system...and another one something on "work on your strengths"..
    got good feedback on shakti gawain ; cashvertizing book and the influence ...

    the book that influenced me the most was the Bhagvad Gita...
