Reading is one habit most successful people swear by. With a world of wealth and knowledge at our fingertips, the type of content you consume speaks volumes.
The culture of reading has always been that the more you read, the more sophisticated and well versed you are but it’s not about how many books you get through a week rather what you read.
Motivate the millionaire in you with these five books:

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
This book helped billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk reach a conclusion on life during his teen years. The book leaves the reader with a sci-fi conundrum, after a super-computer deduces that the answer to a meaningful life is the number 42.
What the original question is, is never revealed. The key takeaway is that maybe the secret to figuring life out is that we have the answer all along.
The Innovator’s Dilemma by Clayton Christensen
The late founder of Apple, Steve Jobs found inspiration in Christensen’s book on the importance of disruption. The author’s view that most companies fail because they stop innovating with technology and their customer’s needs.
