The Most Useful And Impactful Books I’ve Read

It is said that leaders are readers and readers are leaders. As visionaries, if want to make a difference in the world, we need to equip ourselves with wisdom from those with other perspectives and experiences.

Here’s a list of books that have been influential and have impacted me in key areas of my life and work. Some I’ve read all the way through, others I’ve dipped in and out of, but all have made me think and / or take action in some way.

Some of these are affiliate links, meaning I get a commission when you purchase them, but be assured that I only list here, books that I am personally reading or have read. I genuinely reccomend all of these books, regardless of affiliation.

If you’re too busy to read, try Audible and listen whilst traveling.
