“If you are going to get anywhere in life, you have to read a lot of books,” said Roald Dahl. Extending your mind and enriching yourself with the right knowledge is very important if you want to achieve the goals you have in mind.

That is why we have some reading tips on business books that help you to achieve your goals.
According to the New York Times, these books are in the top ten of best selling business books. These are some of the books that we find fascinating.
#1 Breaking bad habits
Nothing is so frustrating as bad habits that keep you from doing the things you need to do. If you want to start adopting good habits and break the bad ones, the book Atomic Habits by James clear might be good for you.
“In this ground-breaking book, Clears reveals exactly how minuscule changes can grow into such life-altering outcomes. He uncovers a handful of simple life hacks, and delves into cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to explain why they matter.” – Waterstones

#2 How the brain thinks
Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Or why you can act super fast on one decision, but have to think a lot more about the other? That has to do with how your brain works. In the book Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, you can read about how your brain works and why people make certain decisions. That is useful information if you want to make an impact in the world of business.
The book according to Waterstones: “The answer lies in the two ways we make choices: fast, intuitive thinking, and slow, rational thinking. 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.”

We all know that building a business can be a tough job. You have to have a clear goal in mind, but also be able to overcome the obstacles that you might face working towards achieving it. The book Grit by Angela Duckworth gives insight into how important resilience is in getting the things you want and how to be more resilient.
“In this must-read for anyone seeking to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth takes us on an eye-opening journey to discover the true qualities that lead to outstanding achievement.
