    My ALL-TIME top 10 business books.

    My ALL-TIME top 10 business books.

    This is it - the BIG one! 
     
    My all-time top 10 business books.
     
    I’ve read more than 1,000 business books over 20+ years – and these are my top 10 business books of all time.
     
    The TEN most read, most thumbed, most recommended, most highlighted, most implemented business books on my bookshelf. I’ve read every one of these books multiple times, and they’ve become an essential part of my small business toolkit. I couldn’t run my businesses anywhere near as well without them.
    While I rarely prescribe “one-size-fits-all” book recommendations, I truly believe that every small business owner will have a significantly better business if they have these ten books on their shelves too.

    I hope you’ve enjoyed my definitive top 100 best business books – I’d love to hear from you (email me - john@bigidea.co.uk), whether you’ve just read a book that you think I’d enjoy – or just want to tell me how wrong I am for not including your favourite book in the top 100! Additionally, I’d love to hear from you if my favourite books have inspired you to read more. 
    Remember though, to read the books AND follow the instructions!

PalavaP ,

Great tips!

I read the book then discovered the podcast. I am started from episode one and now in the 20’s so John is still in the process of writing the book I have already read. This podcast has so many little valuable tips and hints that I keep having to pause it to jot them down so as not to forget then. Highly recommended and a valuable tool for anyone thinking starting or already has a small business. Think I might send a copy of the book to my boss.

Awesome

Excellent podcast really useful

Finally a British podcast for the small business

I came across John through his Big Idea Book (which I loved) and I am currently working my way through the podcasts back catalogue.

If you struggle with the audio of the first couple push through as it's worth it and they get better.
