When you work from home, it’s important that you stay up to date on strategies that can help you work more effectively, as well as educate yourself about areas you may need help with. For this blog post, I asked a few people who work from home for the recommendations for must-read books for people who work from home or want to work from home – here are their suggestions:

I recommend the following books:
- The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss – This book inspires individuals to break free from the rat race and build income through autonomy.
- Remote: Office Not Required by Jason Fried – This book encourages inidividuals and organizations to understand and appreciate the remote work paradigm and its bright future.
- Walden by Henry David Thoreau – This classic work by Thoreau is more than an escape into nature; it is an excellent guide to self-reliance and fulfillment through the adoption of simplicity in life.
A. Philtrate (The Teaching Escape Guy)
I am one of the people who absorb books like a sponge does water. I love to read, non-fiction titles are pricy in paperback so I usually get the Kindle editions. Books I have read this year:
- The Entrepreneur Revolution by Daniel Priestley – This is a real world-view changer
- The Pumpkin Plan by Mike Michalowicz – So many people struggle with their unique selling proposition. The Pumpkin Plan will help any entrepreneur to focus and develop a great USP
- 80/20 Sales and Marketing by Pery Marshall – This book changed the way I looked at clients, a very powerful message that will change your approach to business altogether

My Must Read Books are:
- The Four Hour week by Tim Ferris
- The Science of Getting Rich By Wallace D Wattles
- Rich Dad Poor Dad By Robert Kiyosaki
