Not really a 'business book'...but a inspirational book and one which kind of changed my life and the way I think, its called The Power of Now!

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Power-Now-Gu...2184036&sr=8-1

I highly recommend it.

I've just finished reading "A Book About Innocent...". It tells the story of how they started the company and some of the things they've learned along the way.

I've read a few business books and I have to say this is the best one I've read by far. Great for any business.

That's a great book. Trouble is, you finish it thinking 'if only all offices were as cool as that'!

Having just finished 'Screw It, Let's Do It' by Branson the other day I think it should be compulsory reading for everyone in the UK, not just people wanting to start their own business. Such a positive attitude and outlook on life. No wonder he's consistently voted as one of the most admired and inspiring entrepreneurs.

I have to say I am a big fan of The Pursuit of Happyness (both the book and the film).
Chris Gardner's second book "Start Where You Are" is also well worth a read.

For me, an incredible book for my life has been the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey. It's definitely not a quick, easy read - but if it was easy, it wouldn't be effective, and everyone would do it, right?

Hi

50 ways to love google is good. Branson, Caan, Paphitis, Bannatyne and Sugar are all a good read. The Innocent Smoothie boys book is a good one too.

I also like www.escapefromthecity.org

That has some nice posts.

My book of inspiration and enlightenment for that matter was "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. It's amazing how he broke down those seven fears that lead to failure, and how procrastination is at the top of list of why so many of us never succeed at anything we do.
