By Michael E. Gerber
The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber is a must-read by every business owner. Gerber explains why most small businesses fail and what can be done about it. To succeed, small business owners need to see their businesses as reproducible units. In other words, the key is to create the right balance between their managerial, entrepreneurial, and technical personalities. An excellent book, highly recommended.

By Brian Moran
The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran is a book that will radically change the way you plan for your life and work. Dish the 12 month year and instead focus on the 12 Week Year. Why? Because you can get more done in 12 weeks than in 12 months with the right mindset, goals, and strategy. The 12 Week Year has worked its magic for companies, scores of people, and it can improve your life too. A great book on boosting your performance over the short-term.

By Jim Collins
Built to Last is a must-read if you are an active or aspiring CEO, manager, or entrepreneur seeking to build a profitable organization that will stand the test of time. Many companies begin on a high note but quickly fizzle out along the way. Authors Jim Collins and Jerry I. Porras will show you how to be the company that remains a force to reckon with in your industry and a beacon of light in your community for many years to come.

By Scott Adams
How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big is a narration of the life of Scott Adams, the cartoonist behind the wildly successful Dilbert comic. In the book, Adams shares his recipe for success and shows that even if the odds are stacked against you as they were for him, success is still attainable. An interesting and well-written book on the incredible life journey of one of the world’s most famous cartoonists.
6/10
By Malcom Gladwell
Malcolm Gladwell characterizes his book as the biography of an idea. The idea of how things spread. He says that the key is to think of bestsellers, fashion trends, and other viral sensations as epidemics as they all share a basic underlying pattern. Great ideas although the book is repetitive.
6/10
By Steven Schuster
The Art of Thinking In Systems by Steven Schuster is a book that introduces a new way of thinking called "system thinking". Systems are physical and abstract things that react in relation to one another. With system thinking, you can analyze things around you with the sole purpose of improving yourself. The negative point is that it falls short of diving deeper into the topic of system thinking.
7/10
By Simon Sinek
Start With Why by Simon Sinek is a book that explores why some organizations and individuals are able to inspire while others simply can't. Inspirational leaders start with WHY. They create their reasons and beliefs first before figuring out the WHAT and the HOW. An excellent book on why some businesses and individuals outperform others. I found it a bit repetitive.
10/10
