The Ultimate Mindset Books for Entrepreneurs & Investors
Before we start with the list of books, I want to share 2 of my favorite tools to read and listen to books.
As you probably already know, I am constantly traveling from one country to another, and having a Kindle allows me to take 100s of books with me wherever I am without having to take much space or carry heavyweight paper books.
In addition to the Kindle, which I use mainly at night before going to bed, I am also using Audible, which I use mainly during my daily walks to reach my 10,000 steps goal every day.
The combination of the Kindle and Audible is perfect for busy entrepreneurs.
Now that you are fully equipped to read and to listen to your books, here is the ultimate list of books you should read if you want to take your life, your business, and your investments to the next level. Enjoy!

Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success
Following the success of his 1937 landmark bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote Outwitting the Devil, an exposé on the methods the Devil uses to ensnare and control the minds of human beings.

The resulting confession from the Devil made this book so controversial as to remain unpublished for over 70 years. Now it is your turn to break the Devil’s code and free yourself from the hidden methods of control that lead to ruin.
