The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho which tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
The Lean Startup by Eric Ries. This book is amazing for those starting a company, those who already own a company and those thinking about making that move. It applies science to entrepreneurship, and tells businesses, especially startups, how to start small and simple, then grow through learning, testing, measuring, and rapidly innovating.
