5. Why do nations fail? | Suggested by Mark Zuckerberg
the writer: Darun Ajamoglu, James E. Robinson
Translator: Mohsen Mirdamadi, Mohammad Hossein Naeimipour
number of pages: 576
In today’s world, economics is the most influential issue in different societies, and economic warfare has replaced the common types of wars of the past. People’s satisfaction with governments is also directly related to the state of the country’s economy. In this situation, starting a business with the goal of getting rich requires a lot of knowledge. In this book, written by two experienced economists, we find the relationship between economics and governments. The authors try to take a fresh look at the economy and its relationship with governments in simple language and with examples from different countries.
At first glance, we seem to be dealing with a highly specialized book that only economists and economics students can understand. But this is not the case; Because the issue is stated in a simple and understandable way for everyone. If you are looking to understand the state of the world economy and its impact on countries with different political approaches, this book gives you a new and comprehensive look at it.
The reason for the incorrect implementation of economic policies and the failure of countries to achieve development lies in one word: Politician dilemma: maintaining efficiency or maintaining the rule of a particular group. The problem of politicians is generally not the lack of science and knowledge. The dilemma of maintaining political power is through sacrificing the public interest or securing the public interest and the gradual loss of political power.
6. History Book Almost Everything | Bill Gates’ suggestion
the writer: Bill Bryson
Translator: محمدتقی فرامرزی
number of pages: 608
Scientific books usually have their own audience and usually each book examines and analyzes a specific topic and discipline. The book we want to introduce is the opposite of this category of scientific books; Because he has gone to different scientific disciplines and has described each issue in simple language so that the general audience can understand it. As to why Bill Bryson thought of writing such a book, the textbooks could never get his attention to the subject as well as his satisfaction in understanding it.
For this reason, he decided to address the weaknesses of textbooks in this work and to look at scientific questions and discoveries from a new perspective. In his book, while answering many questions, he tries to arouse the audience’s curiosity for further follow-up. This feature has doubled the book’s appeal. If you are looking for answers to your questions in an exciting science book, a history book is almost everything.
The first thing you need to know is that in order to be here, trillions of wandering atoms have had to come together in amazing ways, full of grace and love, to be created. Being at the atomic level is not a happy experience. Your atoms, with all their eager attention, are practically not thinking about you, that is, they do not know at all that you are at work.
7. The Book of the Secrets of the Rich Mind Suggested by Anthony Robbins
the writer: T. Harrow Acker
Translator: Mehdi Nekouei
Publishers: New look
number of pages: 292
Why do we not see growth and progress in our work despite our tireless efforts? This is the question that T. Harrow Acker is going to answer in this book. He does not see success as a constant effort; Rather, he considers “how and with what mentality we are trying” to be more important and, in fact, the essence of the story. The contents of the book are written and categorized in the same way.
“In the first part of this book, we will explain how the thinking and action of each of us becomes conditional when it comes to money, and there are four key strategies for reviewing the mental money program,” says the author. “In the second part, the differences between the way of thinking of the rich, the middle class and the poor are examined, and seventeen attitudes and actions are listed that must be operationalized in order for permanent changes to take place in your financial life.”
If you think you have a challenge to succeed in your business and become mentally rich, reading this book will help you reach your goals with more mental readiness.
Your inner beliefs about yourself are very important. Do you really feel that you deserve to be rich? Your personality, your way of thinking and your beliefs play a major role in determining your success rate. If you want to change the fruits, you have to change the roots.
8. Book Zero to One | Suggested by Ilan Mask
the writer: Peter Till
Translators: Wase Alavi, Raheleh Yousefzadeh
number of pages: 204
Here is the title of the book Zero to One: Tips on Startups, How to Build the Future. This sentence indicates that we are going to read a book on the central theme of startups and how ideas and companies are formed. This book is one of the most popular books among entrepreneurs; Because it is a good guide and incentive to generate ideas and start businesses.
The author of this book believes that creation is like reaching from zero to one. The name of the book comes from the same belief. If you have an idea for starting a startup or if you are facing entrepreneurial challenges, we recommend reading this book.
Imitating a pattern is easier than creating something new. Doing what we know how to do will take the world from one to n and add something familiar to it. But every time we create something new, we go from zero to one.
9. Zen Mind Book, The Beginner Mind | Suggested by Steve Jobs

10. Moby Dick Book | Suggested by Steve Jobs
the writer: Herman Melville
Translator: صالح حسینی
number of pages: 776
“Moby Dick” is one of the classic American novels and the narrative of the confrontation between man and nature. Excitement and adventure pervade the whole story. However, what makes Moby Dick a lasting and popular work are the symbols and the semantic burden of the story. The story is told by Moby Dick. He is going to hunt whales, which is common at the time.
The book creates beautiful images and scenes from life on a ship and whaling in the mind of the audience that are unique and impressive. The reason for this influence is that Melville, the author of the book, has been a sailor and a shipwright for some time. If you are looking for an exciting and compelling story, Moby Dick is the right choice.
I can not say exactly why I chose to hunt whales. We sometimes do things for no apparent reason.
