10 Must-Read Books I'd Recommend To Someone In Their 20s

So... I read an average of 1 book a day...

Some years when I'm less busy, I read 2 to 3 books a day...

So anytime I have to write something like this, it's tough because of the huge mental reference list I have to compare and contrast with! But I wouldn't say that all of these are in my top 10s, though some probably are. More like... these 10 books are a good place to start building a solid foundation you can stack on top of.

I'm assuming you're starting with a blank slate.

But my first advice for you if you're in your 20s would be... 10 books is nowhere near enough... though it's a good start.

My second advice would be... start with reading stuff you enjoy reading first... and once you've developed the habit and skill, start moving onto harder topics.
