A-Z of personal finance by nimi akinkugbePersonally I do not like reading financial books. Not for any reason in particular – they just don’t do it for me. But when I had a look at Nimi Akinkugbe’s book, I thought to myself: ‘I need this.’ I do need it, and so do a lot of others. A-Z of Personal Finance will teach you how to be more financially aware, so that you’ll be able not just to make more money, but also to keep it.



How to Win Friends and Influence People
by Dale Carnegie
how to win friends and influence people by dale carnegieI read this book when I was rather very young, and the lessons I learnt have remained with me for a long time. Dale Carnegie teaches you important lessons about getting the best out of your relationship with people. Some of the pointers that stand out include complimenting people (genuinely) and avoiding criticism of anybody, know matter who they may be. This book is guaranteed to change you, if you let it.



by Robert Greene
mastery by robert greeneRobert Greene’s books generate mixed feelings, especially his 48 Laws of power. His critics mostly say that his work promotes unethical principles, specifically getting ahead at the expense of others. Greene himself believes in the survival of the fittest, that we shake off competition and succeed by actively manipulating events or people in our favour. Mastery analyses the lives of famous figures and pulls from them lessons on how to be a master in your own field, even if it means stepping on some toes.
