Business books

Wondering what are some good books out there to read about business mindset and how to be successful!

Thanks for any recommendations!

Re: Business books

Everyone should read Delivering Happiness by the CEO of Zappos.

I'm also a fan of Rework from 37 signals, but it's more geared toward software development

You can also try Two-Brian Business: Grow Your Gym which comes from one of the guys behind 321GO Project

Re: Business books

It's definitely not CrossFit specific, but I think Michael Gerber's "E-Myth" is great - it really explains why systems are so important and talks about the difference between creating a business and creating a job.
