I'm a full time student with a full time job, so that leaves me very little time to actually read the books I like to read, so I have a question;

Can anyone suggest me good audio books on money, success, motivation etc...?

My favorite, even though it's old school is Earl Nightingale - The Strangest secret in the world. It's short but full of concise information and timeless.

I have listened to Harv Ecker's - Secrets of The Millionaire Mind and also enjoyed it.

I also use to have Tony Robbin's - The Power Within, but lost the recording.....

So Fire away! It can be your personal favorite or a recommendation.

(Please note that I am open to ANY subject, if I can pickup something worthy, it's a plus)

These are some great suggestions, thanks very much. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Stephen Covey is a favourite of mine.

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

No hype, just thoughtful analysis. Most knowledgable professions would have it on their top 10 list of all time best investing books. I would not do business with anyone that doesn't! It's also one of Warren Buffet's favorite.

I've recently started listening to Paul McKenna's Positivity and I'm really enjoying it. Half of it teaches you techniques on more than just being positive and the other half is hypnosis covering each chapter in the first half. It's something you have to keep practicing and listening to, not just book to listen to once.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Paul-McKennas-Positivity-Program-Your/dp/B000VQZ9O0

He has many other audio programs too on confidence, stress, and weight loss, but I haven't tried those out.

I still like Dave Ramsey's Personal Money Makeover.

This is a how to book with actionable steps. If you follow the plan,

the results follow.

Ouff...

It has been a while, but I just finished by bachelor degree while working full time and I survived.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will look ( more listen) into it.

Any book suggestion? Not exactly about money but more on self-development. I read a few but I feel like they are snake oil salesman.

Thanks in advance!

I would like to add the New Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz who was a cosmetic surgeon but realized that what was stopping most people from success and happiness is their perceived self image...

@JoRich ; That sounds kind of odd no? Looks can be deceiving but do they define success?

A few audio books I recommend you start with is

1. Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell
2. Winning by Jack Welch
3. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Everyone should know some economics if you want to know how the world works and Basic Economics provides a foundation for you to start. Winning helps you with the real world and outliers tell you what determines success. They are good starts I think for something that is more current and interesting.
