The book is about legendary explorer Percy Fawcett, an archaeologist who disappeared without a trace in the Amazon. Unfortunately, Percy didn’t disappear alone. He went with his son, Jack, and Raleigh, Jack’s best friend. All three disappeared without a trace since 1925.  

Percy’s mission in the Amazon was to discover an ancient lost city. He tried exploring the Amazon, an area that’s difficult to study or explore. 

David Grann wrote this biography in 2009, providing information on what he thinks Percy and his son might have faced in the Amazon. Grann has first hand experience on the Amazon, having visited the area decades ago. 

Percy was a man with big dreams and a big heart. He had dreams that generations before him had, but they couldn’t actualize. In addition, how he approached the indigenous people in a non-violent way even when he sensed violence sets him apart. 

He didn’t use violence in any form. Rather, he was friendly and had eyes on the prize, which was the ancient lost city he dreamt of finding.

48. Losing My Virginity: How I Survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way By Richard Branson

What was the first thing that crossed your mind when you came across this biography’s title? Is it romance? Of course, that’s the possible answer many would give. But this biography isn’t about romance, but business, survival, decision making, and resilience.  

This biography covers how Richard Branson, one of the world’s most prudent entrepreneurs, successfully managed several business ventures. This ranges from Virgin Atlantic (airline company), Virgin Cola (cola), Virgin Records and V2 (Music), and several other businesses such as bridal wear, financial services, etc. He founded the Virgin Group, which today manages over 400 companies. 

There is a lot you’ll learn from this book. These include how determined and resilient Richard Branson was and still is. He was somebody who wasn’t ready to take “no” for an answer. 

Even when he landed his hot air balloon in Algeria’s desert, he didn’t quit. Branson was still determined to circle the globe, not minding the gravity of the risk he was about taking. 

Virgin Atlantic wouldn’t have been his today if he wasn’t the resilient type. He fought hard when British Airways tried to take the company away from him. 

His exploits in the entertainment industry have been massive. He signed popular musical acts like Phil Collins, Janet Jackson, Sex Pistols, and others. 

In this mind-blowing biography, Branson poured out his heart to anyone who cared to listen. He even described how he survived life-threatening situations he found himself in. One of them was swimming 2 miles to safety after a devastating storm off the coast of Mexico. 

He even staged a deadly rescue flight mission in Baghdad before the Gulf War started.

He’s an inspiration to entrepreneurs who don’t feel they’re good enough or prepared to run several businesses. He’s also a big inspiration to entrepreneurs I would like to call “closet-entrepreneurs,” those who like to take the back seat even in their business. 

Richard Branson ran his business his way, and looked at the result he got. He’s worth billions of dollars and living life to the fullest. Read and get inspired by a man who has seen it all.

Here is a powerful quote from the book;

“The main thing you have to remember is that everything in the world is a hustle.”

You’ll understand what the writer meant when he called everything in the world “a hustle.” You have to hustle hard if you want to reach the top. People don’t become successful by being idle. None of the successful people in the world became what they were by staying idle. They worked hard to reach the level they got to. 

This book will show you what perseverance means. It shows that no condition is permanent. It’s a book you’ll read, drop, collect your thoughts, take notes, pick up, and continue reading. It’s unarguably one of the most inspirational biographies in history. Check it out and see for yourself.

41. Vera (Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov) Written by Stacy Schiff

You may have read books or heard stories about Vladimir Nabokov and even read his works. But how much do you know about his wife, a damsel that changed Nabokov’s life? 

Vladimir’s wife’s name was Vera, whom the iconic poet described as “the best-humored woman he has ever known.” She was a woman every man would wish to have as a wife: intelligent, smart, and sweet.

According to Newsday, the book is “Artful… both revolutionary and old-fashioned, an intimate biography that leaves both the dignity and the privacy of its subject intact.”

The Chicago Tribune calls it “Illuminating … “Without my wife, ‘Nabokov once remarked, ‘I wouldn’t have written a single novel’… Schiff’s work boldly and brilliantly illuminates how complex this deceptively simple statement… A superb portrait.”    

The Seattle Times is not left out, describing the book as “absorbing, often wildly amusing and deeply moving … Vera’s mere listening to Lolita did more than we shall ever know to determine what we read when we read Lolita.”

38. The Pursuit of Happyness, by Chris Gardner

Have you watched the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness?” You’ll cherish this book even if you haven’t. The book provides information detail by detail about a homeless father taking care of a child on his own and having nothing. 

He took care of his little boy in the ‘mean’ street of San Francisco, homeless and hungry. Some days, he had nothing to eat but had to find a way to survive. 

Chris Gardner gave details of the numerous challenges he faced and how he overcame them. Not many books out there contain the life lessons that “The Pursuit of Happyness” teaches. 

He grew up fatherless and experienced a series of abuse by his stepfather, someone he expected was going to be a father figure in his life. Despite all the challenges, Chris didn’t give up on life. Most people in Chris’ shoes would have ended it, but he was hopeful that things would get better one day. 

Chris eventually had a son, and when things got rough, he could have left like his father did. But he had already made a promise to himself that he wouldn’t let his children become fatherless, just like he was treated. He was determined to stay with his son no matter the challenges he faced.  

From a homeless man sleeping in various shelters and queuing up in soup lines, Chris became one of the most powerful players in his city’s financial district.  

Though this book covers Chris’ career success and how he moved from grass to grace, it also teaches important life lessons of perseverance and focus. It shows the fact that you’re facing challenges today doesn’t mean you have no future. Instead, those challenges are there to prepare you for the next stage of your life. 

Again, Chris was able to break the family curse of parents abandoning their children. He stayed with his son, even when it was difficult and almost impossible to do so. And they spent two years of their lives homeless, poor, hungry, and dirty until fortune smiled on him.

Here are a few quotes from Chris Gardner’s

  • “The world is your oyster. 

It’s up to you to find the pearls.”

  • “The future was uncertain, absolutely and there were many hurdles, twists and turns to come, but as long as I kept moving forward, one foot in front of the other, the voices of fear and shame, the messages from those who wanted me to believe that I wasn’t good enough, would be stilled.”  

You may be going through what Chris went through, or your story might be a little different or less challenging than Chris’. But the good news I have for you is that there will be light at the end of the tunnel as long as you keep walking. 

If you stand still, you will never see the light. But if you keep moving, you eventually reach the finish line or end of the tunnel and see the light. 

Books like “The Pursuit of Happyness” can change your life in ways you can’t imagine.

Laura Hillenbrand wrote the book after spending so much time tracking Zamperini’s story. She followed the story from start to finish, leaving no stone unturned. 

Hillenbrand also gave an account of how Zamperini embraced Christian evangelism years later and forgave his tormentors genuinely. His experience provides a big lesson that generations yet unborn will learn from.

“Moving and, yes, inspirational … [Laura] Hillenbrand’s unforgettable book … deserve[s] pride of place alongside the best works of literature that chart the complications and the hard-won triumphs of so-called ordinary Americans and their extraordinary time.” – Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air

Rob was only thirty-seven years old and retired when he got the confirmation that he had a motor neuron disease. People were deeply shocked and remorseful when he broke the news of his condition. 

Rob is a fighter. He has a positive mentality and energy that many people his age and status wish to have. When he broke the news and mentioned his readiness to fight till the end, people were left in awe. 

This was a kid many had written off as a rugby player. He was called names and termed a player with no future in rugby. But he didn’t listen to the negative noise about him. Rather, he was determined, and today, he’s in the Leeds Rhino Hall of Fame. He turned his predicament into something positive. 

“He’s a man full of kindness, love, and bravery.”

Top individuals in the business community, entertainment industries, government, and CEOs of top organizations have read this book and are wowed by it. Sir Martin Sorrell, the CEO of WPP, is one of the big names who have read this biography. 

Sir Martin Sorrell’s comment about this book shows why it’s a must-read. He claimed that anybody who thinks the Chinese people are just copying and stealing technology from the West should read the book (referring to “The House Jack Ma Built”). 

He tagged Jack Ma, part Steve Jobs, part Bill Gates, part Larry Page, part Mark Zuckerberg, and part Sergey Brin, all rolled into one.

Elon Musk is a popular figure and doesn’t need much introduction. People know him for his exploits in SpaceX, Tesla, Starlink, and Twitter (now called X).   

Elon Musk is a successful businessman and a staunch risk-taker. Many entrepreneurs today won’t dare to take the risks Elon Musk took back then. He founded SpaceX with a view to make space travel affordable and colonize Mars one day.
