Self Development Idea (10) - Reading Good Books

"It isn' what the book costs; it's what it will cost if you don't read it." - Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn been mentioned that most homes valued over USD500K in the US have a library. Does it tell us something? Do you think that these people read first and get the house later or the other way round?

"A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read." Mark Twain

Reading good books is just like finding giants who allow us to stand on their shoulders, to get more ideas, see further, think deeper and broader, etc... Which can eliminate lots of trail and error in life.

Take for example, in the book "Buffettology", it reveals that Warren Buffett had put education in priority and perosnally spent time to educate his grand-daugthers, at the age of 10, in investment. And that these children can select stocks that out-perform the wall street professionals.

Well, as most public are not so lucky to born into those billionaire home where they can have private education on certain subjects that lead them to easier success in certain aspect of life. Therefore, one good way to over come this challenge is to read lot of good books. As this is fully within his personal control.

For the question as which book is good and which is not... One could easily tell, after he read a couple of them...

Here are some classic that are surely good one(on the aspect of Personal Development):-
* The Power of Subconscious Mind - Joseph Murphy
