5 Books every Student must Read

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “if we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he read.” We live in the digital age and like many other good things people have invented and found alternatives for books too, whether in the digital form or with the kindle versions. Whichever form one prefers books would always remain the undisputed best source of learning and gaining knowledge. Students and young entrepreneurs particularly can learn a great deal of things especially from the biographies, memoirs and self-help books written by renowned established businessmen, industrialists entrepreneurs. Though not everyone is fond of reading and one person’s taste may completely differ from the other person, there are a few books that are read and appreciated by a variety of people across the globe.

Here is the list of 5 such books, from completely different genre yet everyone including management students can learn a lot from.

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

1

They say “his personality was reflected in the products he created”. Many would agree that our generation should feel indebted to Steve Jobs for his revolutionary inventions under the brand ‘Apple’. In this biography by Walter Isaacson, the reader can not only read about Jobs’s quest of creating something which no one else has ever done rather know about his really weak points and challenging times. The book also serves as good case study of the rise of a revolutionary digital age.

The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck

2

This book till date, stands as the ‘big daddy’ of all the self-help books. Narrated with stories and self-accounts and examples of how courage, positivity and hope can really instill a new confidence in anyone at any stage of life. People struggling with challenging situations and hopelessness, have a lot to learn and unlearn with this book.

Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon

3

This is another creative entry under the self-help genre, but with a rather witty and practical twist. Kleon has cited examples of people from bizarre backgrounds and times, to help people understand the importance of being creative with one’s work. It can also be called an idiot’s guide to success and accomplishment. Young entrepreneurs can really benefit from this one.

The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau

4

This one is a super interesting compilation of real life stories, adventure, world travel, food, passions and the world in general and the interesting people who live here. This one can be the source of true inspiration for those who fear changes in life and career and chicken out when it’s time to make a few bold decisions, along with exciting stories of people who have dared to think out of box and lived true to their passions.

Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg 

5

An international best seller, this one is by the COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg who talks about the inequality prevailing in the job market internationally. Sandberg touches upon the good and bad work cultures and practices across the industries that one needs to pay heed to before venturing out in the professional world. Though the book was tagged to be a Feminist version of the story, however, professionals, irrespective of their gender can benefit from it.

 We hope that you get to read these and many more interesting books in this year. Stay tuned for our next list of “7 Books that all management students should read”.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you ought to publish more on this subject, it might not be
    a taboo subject but typically people don’t speak about such
    issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

    I believe everything composed was actually very reasonable.
    However, think on this, what if you added a little
    information? I am not saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean 5 Books every Student must Read » Fortune Institute Of International Business is kinda
    plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page
    and see how they create post titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve
    written. In my opinion, it would make your website a little
    livelier.

    Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount
    of work? I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
    share my experience and views online. Please
    let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I have read the Steve Jobs autobiography book recently. The story was admirably beautiful. If you really want to make your life different than others then you should read this book.

    Thank you
