“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.” C.S. Lewis
Reading business books is a great way to get inspiration, gain insights into what others have accomplished, see business opportunities through someone else’s mind, view successes and failures of other entrepreneurs, and dream about ideas for new ventures or ways to enhance your own endeavors.
Books on business topics, biographies and autobiographies and books written on famous companies and their successes, stretch our minds and create a place where new ideas and change can take place.
People like Tom Peters (In Search of Excellence), Peter Drucker, Seth Godin (Purple Cow), and many others have written books that help us to look beyond our present business realities to a different future, a place of change.
“To read a writer is for me not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him and travel in his company.” Andre’ Gide
