Books for your career

I was asked by several people in the last few weeks what books I consider important to read. I try to read a lot and these 6 books belong to my top10. They would definitely help you to think about your career steps.

whomovedmycheese
Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson

Absolutely must-read for everyone. Especially if you know that you are not happy in current job. Helps you to think about current employment and future steps. And the best think – it’s so short that you can read it in 1 hour.


richestman
The Richest Man in Babylon by George Clason

I would suggest this one to be part of high-school financial literacy. Good read even if you are already earning money and want to be sure to invest carefully.


leanstartup
Lean Startup by Eric Ries

Wanna start a company – must read for every entrepreneur.


venturedeals
Venture Deals by Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson

Very good inside how startup investments works.


blueocean
Blue Ocean Startegy by Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne

Aspiring manager or entrepreneur? I wish you can create your own blue ocean and make your competition irrelevant. Book is quite thick so maybe you can consume the most important parts from some summary.


thikingfast
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

I consider this book relevant for people who are already few years working fulltime. Daniel Kahneman will help you find out the reason why clever people do so often poor decisions.


7habits
The 7 habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

If you are self-development enthusiast, you can find some very good tips and tricks here. Stephen Covey has more interesting books, but this one is a perfect starter.
