-Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street by John Brooks

According to Bill gates, the founder of Microsoft, Business Adventures ‘remains the best business book I have ever read’ and is an in depth review of 12 significant business events of the past century. Each case study shows an example of how an iconic company was defined by a particular moment of fame or notoriety and shows how relevant they are today as they were when the events actually happened.    For example, you’ll find out  how the 1962 flash crash highlights how unpredictable the stock market can be (no lesson learnt here!), how insider trading was finally reined in and how you can be accountable to both your shareholders and the greater good when starting a business.  Anyone who wishes to learn about past business case studies should read this book.  You can order your copy by clicking on the picture below.

-The Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman

A personal favorite of mine, this book contains more or less everything you need to know about businesses without actually enrolling in an MBA yourself (thus saving you tons of money!).  Here, Josh Kaufman describes how you get can better results by skipping business school altogether by sharing all the essential components-  entrepreneurship, marketing, sales, negotiation, operations, productivity, systems design, and much more, into one comprehensive volume.  Very straightforward to understand the Personal MBA explains concepts such as the 12 forms of value, as well as the only 4 methods to increase revenue in a business. In my opinion, by reading this book, you will seek to learn essential business principles in no time compared to what most skilled professionals take a lifetime of trial and error to master. In my opinion, the best way to start a business is to do it yourself, and this book is the perfect companion.  Click on the picture below to order your copy now.
