Arsenal of Wisdom (Top Books List)

“The most important investment you can make is in yourself.”

–Warren Buffet

Welcome to the Arsenal of Wisdom–your go-to spot for the most powerful books you can read on success, productivity, business, (auto)biographies, and more! These are books that have fortunately come into my life and have ignited change with who I am as a person and how I see the world today.

I hope you get to experience the personal transformation I went through myself when reading these books. As a life-long learner, I’m always reading and will continually be updating this library.

Make sure to take notes and do all the exercises in a book if they have them! Remember, none of what you read will matter unless you have implemented what you learn. DON’T be a transactional reader!

When you have finished your book, reflect back on your notes. Ask yourself:

“How will my behavior change after reading this book? What can I take action on now?”
