If you had to choose 3 business books to take with you to a desert island, what would they be and why?

How have they help you with your WA journey?

I feel a lot of business books just rehash what’s been said a thousand times before. So what are some truly original, mind-bending books you’ve read, regardless of how old they are?

(I have a few but I’m curious to discover what you think).

Thanks!

Strangely enough, that book didn't do too much for me but it's popularity is unparalleled.

If I were on a desert island, I would want Dr. Helmstetter's book, "What to Say When You Talk to Yourself."

The works of Jamie Smart are quite interesting, how much power lies behind the way we perceive.......

Robert Kiyosaki´s books The Cashflow Quadrant and Rich Dad Poor Dad. What I learned is that as an employee you first pay taxes, then get to spend the remainder. And as a business you first get to spend, then pay taxes.
The Dummies book for business plans was very helpful.

I can't go past Rich Dad Poor Dad!
"What it takes"from an Aussie guy named Mark Bouris is also a good read and "The Millionaire Messenger" from Brendon Burchard. :-)

Thanks John, I also like Rich Dad Poor Dad, probably in my top #10 but not top #3.
