I get it. We entrepreneurs are busy. Between building businesses, family time, maybe a meal here or there, it can be hard to pump the breaks and pick up a book or e-reader.

In my opinion, there has never been a better opportunity to get ahead of the competition by reading especially with so many authors offering the “why” and the “how to” on pretty much everything from new media to business fundamentals.

This is a collection of books I’ve personally read and gotten a LOT out of and recommend to every entrepreneur. They are of different lengths and different styles but the commonality is they all make you think.

These authors and books leave your head spinning and in business a spinning head is often a good thing.

Many of these authors I’ve interviewed over the past year and they are all great people and not just amazing authors.

Below are links to the interviews and also each author’s book (via Amazon) and how to track them down on Twitter. And for the authors I haven’t interviewed yet, I promise I’ll track them down for you. Whatever it takes (another *wink*).
