“What you read will determine what you will become.”

The wise words of Oscar Wilde every entrepreneur should hold dear to heart.

The secret to successful entrepreneurship ventures hides in-between the lines of good books, how many have you read?  

Sometimes we wonder how successful entrepreneurs learned what they know about their business. These guys did their thing differently.  How did they learn how? They simply read books!

To master the art of your business, you need to seek the opinion of different people who have tried out the same art. Reading books helps broaden your horizon about the different facets of business.  

Seminars and workshops are great ways to gain more knowledge about your business, but when you read books, you develop yourself at your own pace.

Here is a list of Top 5 Books to read about Entrepreneurship.
