Rich Dad Poor Dad, one of Daymond John’s favourite books. When he was asked in an interview, “Are there other business books that have changed your life?”
John said, “There are the normal ones that everybody loves. There would be “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” “Who moved my cheese?” I love all the Dale Carnegie books; “The one minute manager.” I love newer ones like “Blue ocean Strategy” and all the “Freaknomics” books.
