Top 5 books to become great and own your life

Discover your ultimate reading experience with the Headway app

In many interviews, Bill Gates confessed that reading is one of his favorite things to do and that he ends approximately 50 books per year. It’s not surprising as many more successful people, such as Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, and Warren Buffet, admit that their achievements come from a lot of reading.

However, most people have a pretty busy life. Whether it’s your job that takes a lot of input to build a career or full-time parenting — it isn’t easy to dedicate at least a full hour per day to reading only.
