If you’re looking for something to read this weekend, consider recommendations from some of the world’s wealthiest, most successful individuals.
Below, CNBC rounded up three books that Mark Cuban and other self-made billionaires say helped them get to where they are today.
“Business Adventures“ by John Brooks
“Cashing in on the American Dream: How to Retire at 35” by Paul Terhorst
“The Art Spirit” by Robert Henri
The co-founder and CEO of Twitter and Square says the takeaways he gained from Henri’s book about painting “helped me get started.”
Among other lessons, Dorsey learned that to be successful, you need a specific purpose. “Without motive, you will wobble about,” the billionaire entrepreneur reads from the book at a 2013 Y Combinator Start-up School event.
“If you don’t have motive, if you don’t have purpose that is shared between everyone, you will wander about,” he continues. “You will wobble and you will not do anything of infinite means, you will not do anything that is timeless.”
