My personal top 12 favorite books of all time.

I love to read. I read a lot. So, having read many great books, I present below those books which provide the most useful insights and practical advice to me.

  1. The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren This book will help you to understand why you are alive and it also reveals God’s amazing plan for you- both in this world and in the one to come.
  2. Think Big by Ben Carson. This book is all about the principles that made Dr Carson become a success. It is about having a positive mindset and doing one’s best. In his success principles, he uses acronym for THINK BIG.
  3. The Richest Man in Babylon by George Samuel Clason. The book presents financial advice through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon. Through their experiences in business and managing household finance, the characters in the parables learn simple lessons in financial wisdom.
  4. Winning by Jack Welch. This book is fantastic. According to Warren Buffett, “No other management book will ever be needed.” The number one reason why the book is so great is because it is based on stuff that has been applied by one of the greatest CEOs. Under his leadership, General Electric (G.E) surged forward in both profits and global dominance.
  5. It’s Your Time by Joel Osteen. The book is filled with bold prayers, inspiring stories and practical tools for moving forward in faith. The book offers spiritual renewal.
  6. Developing the Leader Within You by John C. Maxwell. In this book, John Maxwell put down culmination of skills he learned in twenty years of leading people.
  7. Joyce Meyer. 100 Ways to Simplify your Life by Joyce Meyer. The book explains principles for reducing or removing the stressful aspects of our days that complicate, clutter, and congest our ability to enjoy life fully.
  8. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. It is a motivational personal development and self-help book. Napoleon Hill was inspired to write this book by suggestion from Scottish-American businessman Andrew Carnegie. According to John Maxwell, the book is a ‘life time’ must read book.
  9. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Written in the style of a set of parables, the book advocates financial independence through investing, real estate, owning businesses, and the use of finance protection tactics.
  10. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. The book presents a holistic, integrated, principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional problems. The 7 principles will help to adapt to change and take advantage of the opportunities that change creates
  11. The Ten Roads to Riches by Ken Fishers and Lara Hoffmans. I wish I had this book 25 years ago. Ken and Lara discussed ten ways to achieve financial success. Very interesting. I recommend the book to every young person.
  12. Strength to love by Martin Luther King Jr. The book is a collection of Martin’s sermons predominately on the topic of racial segregation in the United States and with strong emphasis on permanent religious values. The book is my number one favourite book of all time.
