The Life of Books
May 10 2010

I’ve been asked several times by people what business books I read, and honestly I don’t read too many of them.  This could partly explain why I’m not a millionaire yet.  Maybe I have ADD (which many entrepreneurs purport to having in some form or fashion), but a book really has to get my attention and ones presented in fable or story form seem much easier for me to read. I used to devour books (mostly fiction), but with all I have going on, I’m lucky if I can get through one book every few months.  However, as things have started to settle down a little bit in my life (knock on wood), I’m trying to read more books.

Fred Wilson did a post a while back listing the books he recommends for entrepreneurs (e.g., Atlas Shrugged, Shakespeare) which resulted in a guy named Zachary Burt creating a wiki for people to list recommended books for entrepreneurs.  Siddhartha, by Herman Hesse, is on this list and one of my favorites.  I used to give all my Intro to Entrepreneurship students a copy of Siddhartha as a good-bye gift.  It’s one of the few books I’ve re-read at different times during my life and each time I take away something slightly different and more.

I wrote a post a few weeks ago about a book I read during a much needed break called The Happiness Hypothesis and I just finished Outliers by Malcom Gladwell.  I plan to write about books more often on this blog and highlight any connections I see between the content of the book to entrepreneurship and parenting.  The books will range from business related, to fiction, to classics, to possibly space exploration but I believe you can learn something from one book that later can help you assimilate (consciously or un) something you experience in the real world or read in another book.  I also plan to update the design of this blog and add a page listing book recommendations.

If you have any books you think I should add to my pile, please let me know in the comments or by emailing me.  I will be linking to Amazon for books I read and for full disclosure, if you happen to buy a book from that link, I will eventually get a small dollar % of that purchase.  To date in the three plus years I’ve been blogging, I have yet to receive a check from Amazon so I don’t anticipate writing about books will be a lucrative endeavor!
