There are three fundamental books that have shaped the course of my life.The first is the Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Classon. The first book I read about money and wealth creation. The other one is How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie. A good book for anyone who wishes to create influence and improve his social circle

It was Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill that gave me the impetus to set a goal to become an entrepreneur while I was in college.

I have read the book more than 4 times and each time I read it, I always come out with the intention to do more, be more, and have more.

Napoleon Hill wrote the book with inspiration from Andrew Carnegie who at the time was the richest person in the world. He analyzed Carnegie and more than 500 self-made millionaires to come up with the philosophy of success.

The book was largely a summary o

Learn and Practice these Principles and become a success magnet.

He posited that the mind is the master and one can achieve wealth , happiness, great association, health and all other forms of material success if he will use the brain.
