23104898140_625af7a030_zWhat do Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Barack Obama have in common? They read. A lot. There are hundreds and hundreds of amazing nonfiction books out there that can expand your mind and increase your potential. So where do you start? We’ve picked just three that can make a big difference in your career right now.

1. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
This book was first published in 1937 and it’s still relevant today. It covers a lot of information that will help make you successful in business and in life like the six ways to make people like you and 12 ways to win people into your way of thinking.

2. The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
Duhigg is a Pulitzer Prize–winning business reporter who takes us through detailed research on habits on how we can change them. The key to success may be as simple as understanding how habits work. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, be more productive, or take your career to the next level, this book is worth a read.

3. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey 
First published in 1990, this book still manages to make ‘best business books’ lists. You’ll first learn the ‘paradigm shift’ that you likely need to make in how you view the world. Then you’ll cover the seven habits, which move from personal to interpersonal. It’s no quick read, but it’s an eye-opening one.
