5 (more) books to read this summer

Last month I recommended you 5 books (plus a bonus) to read this summer. But, if the summer is too long for you to just read 5 books, here are another suggestions:
1. Fast Track Photographer by Dane Sanders
This book is fantastic and I’m glad I read it. Dane Sanders shows you how to make a living as a photographer in a world where everybody has a camera. Don’t let the title to distract you, because this is a book for everybody, not just photographers. Replace photography with whatever you do. If you are hesitating whether to be a freelancer or an entrepreneur this is your book (and if you don’t know the difference it’s for you too.)
2. Anything You Want by Derek Sivers
I’ve discovered Derek recently in a podcast. And after this podcast I found this guy fascinating. His book is quite short but it will make you rethink how you do business. Totally worth it.
3. The Culting of Brands by Douglas Atkin
This is the best book I’ve read about brands. I loved it. It’s not very famous but if you’re into branding, you’ll start seeing brands differently and get a different perspective of what a brand actually means. Even though the book talks about religions as well, don’t be biased before you start reading it. Seriously, this book is on my top 10.
4. Escape from Cubicle Nation by Pamela Slim
I read this book after I left my job. I was curious to read some stuff it caught my attention. The truth is that (obviously) the timing wasn’t right for me. However, it might be a great book for you. If you’re stuck at your day job and want to take the leap as a freelancer or entrepreneur, first, I would recommend you to read The Dip by Seth Godin. Afterwards, read Pamela Slim’s book before you quit your job.
5. Permission Marketing by Seth Godin
I read this book a while ago, but over and over I see how most marketers miss the basics of modern marketing. They say that every marketer should have The Principles of Marketing in her bookshelf as a bible, but today, that book should be Permission Marketing. Because it turns out that marketers tend to be selfish and narcissist by nature, so the book in the bookshelf would be a great reminder to do things right.
Happy reading!
