Vic’s Book Club
(The books that shaped me)
I wouldn’t be mentally where I am if it wasn’t for the books I’ve read. So as a treat here is the complete list of books that completely shaped my mind since I’ve started reading seriously in 2015.
Book topics range from: Business, Real Estate Investing, Leadership, Self-Help, Time Management, and Financial Literacy/Money Tips.
HERE’S A TIP: I bought the audiobook version of most of these books and listened to them twice (1st time for a general understanding; 2nd time to better retain the information).
To listen to the audio version:
- Get audible for $14.95/month (first month’s free, and it includes a free audiobook of your choice). Even if you cancel, you still keep the audiobook forever.
- Download the audible app on your phone.
- Buy the audiobook version of any of these book titles below. Once purchased, check your audible app on your phone and you will see your new book there.
Here’s my recommended book list (starting with the latest book on down):
