Books that are well-written and experience-backed are great resources for entrepreneurs. I’m very particular about who I seek advice from, and I’m sure that others are like that as well. That’s why I’m sharing the best business books from some of the most prominent individuals in the world of business.
These books cover a wide range of topics, from building a successful business to developing effective leadership skills. Some are classics that have been around for decades, while others are newer and will likely become classics. Here are a few of the best books for entrepreneurs to read in 2022.
Principles: Life and Work – Ray Dalio
One of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors in the world of business is Ray Dalio. From a middle-class upbringing to becoming a billionaire, he is the founder and co-chairman of the investment firm, Bridgewater Associates. Over the years, his firm has become one of the most successful hedge funds in the world.
When he started Bridgewater Associates in his two-bedroom apartment in New York, he had no idea that it would become one of the most successful firms in the world. Through his extensive research and development, he was able to create a set of principles that led to the company’s success. His philosophy is that everything from economics to life can be systemized into rules.
Principles is a great resource for individuals and organizations who want to improve their decision-making and manage their relationships, and it’s one of my favorite books to suggest to other entrepreneurs.

It’s a great read for anyone who’s looking to improve their productivity and income. There are plenty of examples and facts from his own life that will help you create the ideal lifestyle.
