9 books to read if you want to be a billionaire

warren buffett

If there’s one habit most super-successful people share, it’s this: They read. A lot.

Many of them have shared the books that helped shape them personally and professionally. If you want to emulate these titans of industry, reading their faves seems like a good place to start.

From classic literature to business management guides, we rounded up their top picks, so you can start stocking your shelves.

‘The Intelligent Investor’ by Benjamin Graham

Among Wall Streeters, Graham is known as the father of value investing. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett credits Graham’s book with laying the foundation for his investment philosophy when he read it at age 19.

"To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information," Buffett said. "What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework. This book precisely and clearly prescribes the proper framework. You must provide the emotional discipline."

‘Making the Modern World’ by Vaclav Smil

This book by an environmental sciences professor focuses on the costs of increasing material consumption and the potential for dematerialization in the future.

Bill Gates, estimated to be the richest man on earth, calls Smil his favorite author and says the book gave him new insight into the materials that make modern life possible.

"It might seem mundane, but the issue of materials — how much we use and how much we need — is key to helping the world’s poorest people improve their lives," Gates writes. "Think of the amazing increase in quality of life that we saw in the United States and other rich countries in the past 100 years. We want most of that miracle to take place for all of humanity over the next 50 years."

‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ by Douglas Adams

This work of science fiction helped billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk through an existential crisis during his adolescence. In the book, a supercomputer deduces the answer to a meaningful life is the number 42, though it’s not clear what the original question was.

"It highlighted an important point, which is that a lot of times the question is harder than the answer," Musk said in an interview. "And if you can properly phrase the question, then the answer is the easy part. So, to the degree that we can better understand the universe, then we can better know what questions to ask."

A fitting, durable and not to mention versatile option for the warm weather (and year-round), head over to retailers such as Sneaker Politics to pick up your new pair of favorite white kicks.
