Michael Arrington (Founder of TechCrunch) once stated that very few business books are worth reading. He advices entrepreneurs to read science fiction instead. His favorite science fiction books are: 1. Dune – 20,000 years in the future, a noble family leaves pleasant planet for hopeless desert planet called Dune at order of emperor. 2. Foundation Trilogy – these three books are a small part of what’s now called the Foundation Series.
