Books will never die.
As a medium, high-quality books contain incredible amounts of curated information. And for some reason, even though access is universal, books continue to remain consistently undervalued investments. A good book has the power to change a life or build a fortune.
Consider the example of The Millionaire Next Door, which you can buy with an investment of $16.95. This book is a handcrafted collection of countless research studies, data analysis, and reflection by two highly educated college professors. These professors present the reader with their life’s work in a distilled, easy-to-read and inspiring format. This book highlights the best of what they know. And the research presented pulls back the curtain on the operating system of real-world Millionaires. You can purchase all of that information for less than twenty dollars. The value is enormous.
Any life hacker or investor looks for tremendous value at a discounted price. Today, books offer multiples of value relative to their purchase price. Many books, if followed correctly, have the capacity to change your thoughts, your actions, and your beliefs. These are the books with the special sauce. They are the immediate moneymakers, new frameworks of thought, or pathways to success laid right out in the open, for anyone to consume.
My belief is that books will continue to thrive as a dominant medium. This is why I consistently give a list of recommended books to read. Well today, I want to add a couple more to the list. Here are some new thought-provoking, inspiring, and potentially life-changing books that I have enjoyed over the past several months.
If you take the time to carefully read these books, take notes, pay attention, and then have the courage to act on their valuable advice, you just might change. And change for the better.
PS: These books have also been added to my running list of recommended books to read. Enjoy!
