Jonathan Livingstone Seagull by Richard Bach
I have read this amazingly simple book a number of times, yet it never fails to inspire me every single time: to try and be the best that I can be, in everything that I do.

Who Says Elephants can't Dance? by Louis V. Gerstner, Jr
This book taught me the importance of execution in building a business. Winners are mostly differentiated not by strategy, but by quality of execution.
The Success Principles by Jack Cranfield
This is a fabulous personal development book that features principles used by successful people in history. It is a book about positivity, confidence and ambition, all explained in a very engaging manner.

The Greatness Guide by Robin Sharma
You can open this book anywhere, and it will provide you with a nugget that will enhance, enrich and make you a better human being.

Out of my Comfort Zone by Steve Waugh
Waugh takes you pitchside with amazing detail in this mammoth description of a great cricketer's life. I am hugely inspired by his raw courage, strength of character and honesty.
