Michael Gerber's The E-Myth Revisited should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting a business or for those who have already taken that fateful step. The title refers to the author's belief that entrepreneurs--typically brimming with good but distracting ideas--make poor businesspeople. He establishes an incredibly organised and regimented plan, so that daily details are scripted, freeing the entrepreneur's mind to build the long-term success or failure of the business.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki & Sharon Lechter - Little, Brown £9.99

Both this and Cashflow Quadrant (listed below) are excellent reading for those who are searching for financial independence. Robert Kiyosaki, a personal finance author and lecturer, has taken the advice he received as a child and which led him to retire at 47, and made a highly readable book with a new outlook on making money.

Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad's Guide to Financial Freedom by Robert Kiyosaki & Sharon Lechter - Little, Brown £12.99

This book is the follow up to the extremely successful Rich Dad, Poor Dad book by Kiyosaki and takes the concepts of financial independence to the next level. Well worth reading. Both books are written for the US audience but the principles work well anywhere.

Money for Life by Alvin Hall - Coronet, £5.99

Alvin Hall strips the basic concepts that everyone should know about money management down to simple, easy to understand chapters that should be required reading for those who want to feel more in control of their finances.

Nine Steps to Financial Freedom by Suze Orman - Three Rivers Press £9.99

This book has been at the top of the New York Best Sellers List and there is good reason for that. It is a clearly written book on how to define and achieve financial freedom. This is another book written with the US market in mind so some of the chapters are not relevant to the UK audience but the other areas are so strong that I still highly recommend it.

Who Moved My Cheese: An amazing way to deal with change in your work and in your life. by Dr Spencer Johnson - Vermilion £5.99

So many of the issues that are covered in coaching relate to change and this is the best book I have read on the subject and always causes great discussion afterwards. The whole book should only take a couple of hours to read but it is one I am sure you will refer back to . It is a simple story with a great moral!

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho - HarperCollins £6.99

This is a simple fable for grown ups. It is the beautifully written story of a young boy's journey from Spain through North Africa in seach of great riches. It is about following your dream and the lessons you learn along the way. A great read!

Reviewer: A reader from NJ USA
I have read hundreds of self help books, and this one is without a doubt the BEST. I could read this one over and over. It also is much easier to understand than most. After reading and practicing the techniques in this book, I feel for the first time in years, that I have finally made it past the hurdle, and look forward to increasing success.
