Books are a treasure trove that can be used by the students who aspire to develop their individuality and meanwhile learn new skills to explore.

Readers are never bored or scared of solitude as they always have a friend alongside them i.e. books that keep them engaged and busy in their own world. Now another argument some of you may have is, that we don’t have enough time to read in college. Well, I beg to differ; college is a great time to expand your knowledge in every possible way. Think beyond yourself and you will find plenty of opportunities for learning.

1. The Art of Communication by Jim Stovall & Raymond

The First Book I included in my list of Top 5 Books Every College Student Should Read is The Art of Communication. I personally follow this book as this book gives methods for presenting oneself and addressing questions from an audience, resolving conflicts, and listening. Having a demeanor that is receptive and confident while engaging with appropriate eye contact is important. The use of gestures and being aware of nonverbal communication are mentioned.

The author gives tips for developing the right mindset when handling conflict. He also gives guidelines for preparing slide presentations. Not all students are good speakers and stage performers, sometimes people get nervous and are not used to stages or being in front of a big crowd and get nervous or stage fear. This book helps students how they can present, and address in front of any audience.

3. Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert’s story of growing up with two dads his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad, and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you. In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant, and important today than they were 20 years ago.

This book is a gem. It gives you simple explanations of how money works. It will not give you any trading tips, but it helps you understand the things no one teaches us in school or at home. The financial insights aid you in taking action and being your own boss. Many people don’t like this book, but I think every novel is different, and being written by diverse authors who have distinct experiences makes it more interesting to read. Whether you’re an experienced financer or a newbie, this book is perfect.

Some of the beautiful lines that one comes across while reading this book are:
