    The Property Tribes Essential Book and Reading List

    This is a really good list, and I've made a note of some books to revisit and some to add to my (audible) reading list.

    A couple to add which I've found helpful recently are The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan and Crushing it by Gary Vaynerchuk

    Enjoy!

    There's some highly valuable books on this thread!

    One great reading suggestion I have is to read the autobiographies of highly successful people such as Richard Branson, as so much can be learnt from their life and experience.

    I preach the the quote that Vanessa posted as books really are priceless. Make reading a daily/weekly priority and set reading goals. Remember that, by reading the right books you get to go into the minds of some of the worlds most successful and greatest people.

    Also, in quite a few cases people have completely changed their lives for the better just from reading that one certain book.

    I've enjoyed reading and re-reading a few years later the Alan Sugar autobiography. Never giving up seems to be a common recurring theme in these books.

    Thanks for the recommendation, I never thought of Alan Sugar. He really is a great businessman.

    One to add for me. I've almost finished reading Shoe Dog by Phil Knight - a memoir by the creator of Nike. Great insight into how it all started and the level of risk / persistence required. Fantastic book about entrepreneurial spirit, never taking 'no' for an answer, and following one's passion, which can be carried over to property investment. Will never look at my pairs of Onitsukas or Nikes in the same way again.

    I read that last month, I really enjoyed it, John Howard has some great tips in there, well worth a read for the 'real' side of investment, his negotiating tips were fantastic especially.

    How to Own The World by Andrew Craig - It's more focused on general investment, but is about building sustainable, long-term wealth by ensuring you invest in a wide range of asset classes across the world. The idea of which being that you would minimise losses during a down turn as one of your other assets is likely to increase (stock market goes down, price of gold or silver normally increases etc).


    The author does a much better job of explaining it than I do!!
