25 Best Books on Success

It is very difficult to identify the 25 best books on success and any effort to do so will depend on many things. Your list may be a lot different from mine. In the January 2013 issue of Success Magazine Erin Casey created her list and it is a pretty good one.

You can read a brief summary of each book at: http://www.success.com/articles/141—-25-books-for-success. While this is not necessarily the definitive list it is a great place to start. 


I have reviewed many of these books in my weekly newsletter, Creating True Wealth over the past four years and will review the remainder in coming months. 


Consider how much you could learn by just reading these 25 books in 2013. That is two books a month, which is a challenge for most, but would be well worth it. For most people an hour of reading a day would easily accomplish this. 


Does reading all 25 seem too big a task? Then just pick three of them and read them. Study them. And then pick three more. Some books will resonate more with you than others. However the education you will gain by reading them will be the most affordable education you can imagine and will serve you extremely well for the rest of your life.
