Over 50 Plus Books Recommended To Women, Blacks, Hispanic, Minority, and All Founders



I remember when Bill Gates was everyone's’ business hero. When Microsoft was more sexy than Amazon or Apple. Now we live in a world where Jeff Bezos, who was a son to a teen mom. (Article: How Amazon founder Jeff Bezos went from the son of a teen mom to the world's richest person
 ) is kicking ass online and planning to kick-ass offline. He might be a white-straight-guy in America but that’s no reason not to learn from him. I recently came across several list of great books Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, Daymond John, Jack Ma, Hamdi Ulukaya, Morris Chang, Jensen Huang, Muhammad Yunus, Sam Zell, Sheryl Sandberg, Martha Stewart, etc recommend so I’ve decided to share over 50+ books plus my recommendations. You can learn from anyone even if they don’t look or act like you. I have personally read a quarter of them and I keep rereading most.


P.S. If you don't like reading, try audio-books..
