    Welcome to Business Advice Forum rocco , thanks for joining. I read Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad Poor Dad" a few years back and found it very helpful for becoming financially aware and educated. I haven't read any of his other books but would like to some day.

    Are you looking for recommendations for books relating to running a small business or for improving your personal finances?

    My Favorite Book is "Stay Hungry Stay Foolish" and "CONNECT THE DOTS" by Rasmi Bansal both are awesome books and best sellers.

    Stay Hungry Stay Foolish - This Book has story of Those people who passed out from IIM Ahmedabad (Worlds Top BSchool) and Their innovative ideas and Business Setups

    CONNECT THE DOTS - This Book has stories of Those people who belongs from very common families, did study something else but they have choose the path of excellence with their innovative ideas. These people are now among richest people.

    Both are excellent books and I personally recommend all to read.

    I'd like to hear a little more about your opinion on those two books, how did they help you and would you recommend them?

    Inbound marketing a great primer to internet marketing and breaks down the need to attract people to you rather than trying to bring your product/service to them. The Art of SEO I'm still working on and is a college size text book that explains some very complex concepts. I'm ranking for some very competitive keywords and it wasn't that long ago I started to learn SEO its definitely worth the investment in time.

    It's a book I've been meaning to read for quite some time now, but haven't found the time to get it yet. What did you like most about it Yanni?

    Honestly, it's simplicity. The concepts in the book are super simple. This book was written over 50 years ago, but with the growth of distance communication, the concepts are more important today than ever before.

    Does it cover any particular type of investment smith360, e.g. is it for investing directly in small businesses or investing in the stock exchange?
