If you are a person who can’t find enough time for a good reading, mostly you prefer the books which is suggested by anyone else. We digged up some researches and interviews, and finally found “bookshelf.tips” which is pretty helpful for aspired entrepreneurs, because this website collects books the bedsides ones, for successful CEOs!
Here below the list which contains 5 inspiring books from CEO’s.
1. Jason Fried, co founder and CEO of Basecamp and his inspiring book: Turn the Ship Around by L. David Marquet
“No matter your business or position, you can apply Marquet’s approach to create a workplace where everyone takes responsibility for their actions, people are healthier and happier – and everyone is a leader.”
2. Louis von Ahn, founder of reCAPTCHA and Duolingo and his inspiring book: Zero to One by Peter Thiel
“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them. It’s easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. Every new creation goes from 0 to 1. This book is about how to get there.”
3. Marc Kohbrugge, founder Betalist.com and his inspiring book: Thinking, Fast and Slow by James Clavell
“This book reveals how our minds are tripped up by error and prejudice (even when we think we are being logical), and gives you practical techniques for slower, smarter thinking. It will enable to you make better decisions at work, at home, and in everything you do.”
4. Joe Gebbia, co-fpunder and Chief Product Officer of Airbnb and his inspiring book: Start with Why by Simon Sinek
“Why do we do what we do? Why do we exist? Learning to ask these questions can unlock the secret to inspirational business. Sinek explains what it truly takes to lead and inspire and how anyone can learn how to do it.”
5. Michael Seibal, CEO Y Combinator and his inspiring book: Shogun by James Clavell
“This is James Clavell’s tour-de-force; an epic saga of one Pilot-Major John Blackthorne, and his integration into the struggles and strife of feudal Japan. Both entertaining and incisive, SHOGUN is a stunningly dramatic re-creation of a very different world.”
