August 2010 Reading List

With July nearly all wrapped up, it’s time to see what kind of literary wonders await on deck.  If you didn’t seen my reading list for July, you can check it out here.  In case you haven’t been following these lists, I started creating monthly reading lists due to a few e-mails I received from readers asking me about other books I recommend or am considering reading.

In July, I focused a lot on marketing and sales, but now I think I want to get back to the basics of entrepreneurship.  I’m going to try something a bit different this month, and open the list up to your ideas. In other words, between now and the end of July, I’ll leave this post “open.”  If you have any good suggestions, leave them in the comments between now and July 31st, and if I think I want to read them, I’ll edit this post and add it to the list (and give you props, of course!).

Below are a few books I will aim to read this month, time permitting (as always):

1) The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur by Mike Michalowicz

2) The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It by Michael Gerber

3) The Art of Innovation by Thomas Kelley

The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur The E Myth Revisited The Art of Innovation

If you’ve read or are currently reading any of the books listed here, please share your comments.  I’d love to see what everyone else thinks about these books, especially before I read them.  If you have suggestions for next month’s reading list, please share those too!

  1. The Art of Innovation I have never even heard of, the Toilet Paper Entrepreneur is mentioned so much I almost feel that I have read it, even though I haven’t, but the E-Myth Revisited is an absolute classic. I just read and reviewed it myself and really every entrepreneur should read it.

    I had no idea the Toilet Paper Entrepreneur was so popular, so I’m looking forward to reading that. I’ve actually read the E-Myth Revisited either back in high school or early in college, but I don’t remember it AT ALL, so I’m going to take a stab at it again. Thanks for the comment, Tyler!
