Top 150 Best Books For Men

Top 150 Best Books For Men – What Successful Businessmen And Entrepreneurs Read

Education begins the gentleman, but reading, good company and reflection must finish him. – John Locke

Can you guess the strangest secret of successful men?

Clickty, clank, clickty, clank…

It’s not just the money in their piggy bank..

Truth be told it’s the books in their library.

Read the biographies of successful men and you’ll find two universal truths: They are avid readers and lifelong learners.

The moment you think you know it all, you stop growing. Without knowledge you have no power. Without literature you have no freedom.

A private library has always been an escape for the curious mind; start one. After finishing this list you may just be more inclined to start something even greater. A Fortune 500 company perhaps…

This is the most comprehensive list of books for men on the planet.
