There are hundreds of short-movies and websites available nowadays, But There is nothing better than the smell of paper (at least for some old-school lovers). Here are The Must-Read Books for Entrepreneurs. You can use Kindle, iPads or order paperback to start reading them.
MUST READ BOOKS FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Before someone bash me for not including popular business books like "Lean Startup", and "Zero to one", I want to clarify this: I think most of the books out there are overly hyped and don't provide enough practical value you can quickly implement.
There could be hundreds of books and the list would still be sort, but I had to come with the top 5 books at the end. So, here is the finest collection of them. I will keep this list updated so you can bookmark the post to visit later or subscribe 😉

BLUE OCEAN STRATEGY
"One of the bestselling business books of the century" -- Financial Times
The book discusses some breakthrough secrets which most of the people know in "a wrong way". Blue Ocean Strategy clearly explains why there is no competition in the business if you are doing it in the right way.
An Amazon reader has defined the book in the best possible way. Let me quote him here:
As I read, I reflected on the work of developing entrepreneurial ventures in barren and sometimes depressed sub-economies in under-served communities. I reflected on the range of talent, resourcefulness, and perseverance in these communities. Why, then, don’t they have more “Blue Oceans” of uncontested market space? Or is it that our minds and souls are so numb that, as in the book’s Circus del Sol case study illustrates, we can’t envision the extraordinary? Are we living in self-imposed exile in the proverbial Dead Sea while the Blue Ocean waves are licking at our feet?
ART OF WAR
Sun Tzu was a Chinese general, military strategist, writer and philosopher who never lost any battle in his lifetime. Thousands of years ago he lived in Eastern Zhou period in China. His principles he used in warfare are now used in daily lives and business.
The book Art of War is a collection of his ground-breaking rules which can definitely make your life and business easier and You, smarter.
The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
THINK AND GROW RICH
An evergreen book by the legendary speaker and author Nepolian Hill. The describes 14 principles Hill learned from the millionaires.
From the principle of desire to how to use the powerful strategy of mastermind and sub-conscious, the book uncovers many hidden gems in the mind of a true entrepreneur. The book is timeless and even though, it's been written more than 60 years ago, it is equally (or in fact, more) significant for the new age entrepreneurs.
THE BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN FOR ENTREPRENEURS
I want to conclude this article by telling you about a concept. It is not a book, but a concept. Which helped me to become a better entrepreneur and a better human being. Because to improve your business, you will have to work on yourself.
I truly believe in something my mentor once told me: "Tactics will be over with time, but Principles Remain forever".
Do you believe it's true? Let me know in the comments what do you think about it. Make sure to pick one or two or all the books I have mentioned above for the Aspiring or Running entrepreneurs.
