Top 5 Books You Should Read Before Turning 25 Years Old by hopsydboi(m): 1:29pm On Oct 21, 2016

1: ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING by Keith Harrel

In my own words, "this is the building block of reading any book before you turn 25 years old". Keith Harrell made this book a foundation of whatever life circumstance you find yourself in, either a positive or negative situation, the book help you understand how the right attitude is most important to every issues of our life. My best quote from the book should sum it all up; "life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it". Keith is recognize from the wall street journal as "A star with Attitude". The book states 10 steps in turning your attitude into positive action.

Stedman Graham, author of you can make it happen in is words said "Inspiring and comprehensive. Keith Harrell offers not just another motivational book, but step-by-step instructions on how many have benefited by taking responsibility for their own lives. This book is required reading for anyone wishing to tap into his or her potential."

"A positive attitude is the key to success for all of us, and Keith's book demonstrates life-changing ideas and suggestions for turning attitude into action. This topic is Keith's specialty, so the information contained in the book comes straight from his heart. We all need to hear what he's saying and put it into action in our everyday lives!"
—Les Brown, author of Live Your Dreams

2: RICH DAD POOR DAD by Robert Kiyosaki

Rich Dad Poor Dad is a 1997 book written by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. It advocates the importance of financial independence and building wealth through investing, real estate investing, starting and owning businesses, as well as increasing one's financial intelligence to improve one's business and financial aptitude. Rich Dad Poor Dad is written in the style of a set of parables, ostensibly based on Kiyosaki's life - wikipedia

Before you turn 25 and have plans of having financial Independence thereof, then this book is a must read for you. Robert broaden my scope about getting job, been a entrepreneur, inheritance, investment etc, it all boil down to asset management which the book provide life practical ways to improve your financial stability before you turn 30, but make sure you read the book before turning 25.


3: A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME by Stephen Hawking

Not a science enthusiast? You first question can be, for what? But real intelligence lies in diversity, it is only expedient for you to know a bit of everything. Newton knows this and said intelligent persons should find the connection between Art, Science and Religion. Much more reasons why this is included in the list of Top 5 books you should read before turning 25 is the great knowledge the book offers in science and the existence of our universe.
Wikipedia describe it as thus A Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes is a 1988 popular-science book by British physicist Stephen Hawking. It became a bestseller and sold more than 10 million copies in 20 years. It was also on the London Sunday Times bestseller list for more than four years and was translated into 35 languages by 2001

-Stephen Hawking attempts to explain a range of subjects in cosmology, including the Big Bang, black holes and light cones, to the nonspecialist reader. His main goal is to give an overview of the subject, but he also attempts to explain some complex mathematics. In the 1996 edition of the book and subsequent editions, Hawking discusses the possibility of time travel and wormholes and explores the possibility of having a universe without a quantum singularity at the beginning of time.
After reading this book you should do away with some general myth about the universe and create a new concept of viewing life as a realistic egg and thus affect your general view how things was, are or meant to be. you simply just become more realistic.

4: HOW TO TALK TO ANYONE, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE by Larry KIng

Before you turn 25 a good communication skill is required of you to socialize in the society you inhabit. And communication been an upper most important in anything we do in relation to the society. i have not read any book the help you communication better than Larry King's How to speak to anyone anytime anywhere. In your various school, work place or within peer group, after reading this book, you definitely have an edge in communication. An old book it may be but sound basics to good communication skills.
