What are the recommended inspiration books for entrepreneurs ?

Lately I found myself reading a lot... Or, more correct hearing a lot, I am a HUG fan of audiobooks, I mostly use you must try, it's a life changing experiance to hear a books, suddently I can't wait to go shopping, since I can hear Seth Godin (@ThisIsSethsBlog) or Chris Brogan(@chrisBrogan) or  Malcolm Gladwell (@gladwell) talks to me for an hour :) Yap, most of the times the book author reads his own book, so he pays special attention to intonation and pass a message as reading....full list below...

Some people ask me what was that book you told me about, or i have a few days off which book should i read... so here is my latest list of book I recommend all entrepreneurs to read in order to be inspired.
So here are my favorite "inspiration" authors (some of which I had to pleasure to meet or talk.. whoo):
And here are the books and some thought bout them... have fan, and please tell me if you think i missed someone, i will love to read his book, get inspired and add him to this post :)

Great short read and very inspiring, show us that only with hard work, and thinking big we can achieve something that provides value to the world.

Comment: "Clayton M. Christensen the writer of the must read book "The Innovator's Dilemma" in a book where he talks about big companies, and the important of a scalable business model.
More relevant for big companies CEO's, but can and should inspire young entrepreneurs to think big, act big and succeed big :)
