1.The Richest Man in Babylon
2. Rich Dad Poor Dad.
3. The Alchemist
4. Shoe Dog.

Richest man in Babylon ignited fire in my heart, it's the reason I'm always on my toes even in my dream

Rich Dad, poor dad: great

The alchemist: eye opener






But "richest man in Babylon" is there amongst the greatest books of all time, my children would have a copy each

I'm not really religious, but the words of Jesus christ in the bible made me who I am today. It gave me a great path and gave my life a huge meaning.

Law 5: Protect Your Reputation at All Costs.

Let me start first.
Mine is named The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do In Life And Business. It's a book by an American reporter, Charles Duhigg. Prior to reading that book, I used to have some bad habits that keep re-occuring, sometimes unconsciously. The book helped me identified and change some of my "keystone habits" which were the fountain from which other habits emerged.
So folks, what is that great book that shaped your life or that made you realise something important?

It's only in Nigeria where bible is changing people's lives, yet it's not reflecting or having any positive impact on the Nation and its citizens.
Read books that will widen your knowledge about life.
Everyone to what suits them anyways.
