What´s on my bookshelf – and what about yours?

Hey all,

this weekend I finally made myself an overview of the books I´ve read so far and of those I´ve still on my list.

Since it´s always a topic to talk about what books one has read and which books I recommend I listed them with some subjective ratings.


Please keep in mind that those ratings are very subjective and depend on the time and situation when I´ve read a particular book. For example: I rated Kiyosaki´s book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” with a great rating. Not because it´s high quality content but because it was one of the first book I´ve read and it´s inspiring for everybody who is starting out. On the other hand I rated Suze Orman´s “9 Steps to Financial Freedom” with a low rating because when I´ve read it this book hasn´t had anything new or special to say.

So focus on my “recommendations” instead:

  1. Thanks for sharing! Read some of them too. Any book suggestion with maintopic Social Network Marketing (FB, G+, Twitter…) for me?


    • I´m actually following a few blogs about social media marketing. I´ll post them at the end of February. Blogs are mostly more specific and up to date with particular cases and activities.
