32 Books Anyone Who Wants to Succeed Should Read

The most successful people typically work hard, practice the right habits every day, and often are readers who strive for self-improvement. If reading is something you’re willing to do to sharpen yourself, take some suggestions from more than two dozen executives who highly recommend these titles.

1. Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman

–Ryan Smith, founder and CEO of FTSY (“footsy”), an artificial intelligence platform for matching people to shoes that fit:

“Nobel Prize Laureate Kahneman packs in gems like, ‘We either ignore [small risks] or give them too much weight. Nothing in between.’ In moving from information to intelligence, this book is a must-read for leaders at any level. The audiobook is amazing, and I love the real-life examples that shed light on inherent biases from the truth.” Read More.

2. The Power of Now, by Eckart Tolle

–Janice Taylor, founder and CEO of Mazu, a social-media village built on core values, safety, and curated content for families:

“Spearheading the vision of any company tends to cause leaders to live in the future, focusing on when milestones will be reached and goals will be met. The interesting part is this ‘when’ is often never realized when we stay in this future-focused state. [This book] showcases the power of being truly present to where you are. The answers are often right in front of you. The success is playing out for you in the now. As leaders, we love the end game, but we must also learn to smell the roses, be mindful, and be fully present. Falling in love with the process of being present is a reminder for all leaders. Tolle not only logically breaks down the madness of future living but shows a new way to be a visionary in the now.” Read More.

3. When Breath Becomes Air, by Paul Kalanithi

–Derrick Fung, CEO of Drop, a Millennial-focused reward program that lets users accrue points while shopping their favorite brands:

“This book tells a tale about the life of Paul Kalanithi–an Oxford English major turned neurosurgeon–who finds himself as both a doctor and terminally-ill patient at the same time. It speaks to the fragility of life and highlights the imperativeness of living life to the fullest. It is a great book for entrepreneurs and risk-takers who are looking for new perspectives on life, career, and family. Like the roller coaster of building a large sustainable business, this book truly illustrates how real life’s proverbial roller coaster really is.” Read More.
