What book has made you the most money?

Obviously books alone don't make people money. Just reading books won't make money. But reading and taking action on what you've read has made people stupid money.ย 
That being said...which book has made you the most money in your career?ย

12 Rules for Life: Jordan Peterson

Not sales related, but really affected my mindset for the better and I believe that led me to be in the right place to try sales and take it seriously.ย

That man's fluency is unmatched. I'm getting started with his Biblical series, and it is amazing.

Never split the difference; I've said on a few threads I recommend that book but its impact goes outside of my sales career. I think it is a book that has both made me money and saved me money. Double dipping the chip!ย

Def worth it. I listen to it once or twice a year, just because I am an idiot and need reminded that often.ย

Rich Dad Poor Dad got me into sales and real estate.

However, the book that made me really wake up and get after my career was The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone.

There isnโ€™t a book that will sell you a trick to suddenly become successful, but Cardoneโ€™s book helped get me to push myself to new heights.

Very highly recommended.

I thought Rich Dad, Poor Dad was weak after reading several others in that genre. But whatever works for each person.

It's a good introduction to the concept of personal finance. There are definitely more advanced and detailed books but RDPD is a good way for a beginner to dip their toes in.

My dad drilled many of the lessons of The Millionaire Next Door into my head as a kid (without me even realizing it). Read the book as an adult and it's awesome.
