Talent is Never Enough by John C. Maxwell. Maxwell lets us know that talent in itself is incapable of making a person great.

Rich dad poor dad by Robert Kiyosaki. My personal favorite (maybe because it’s about money). Robert lets us into his life and upbringing under two fathers; one rich and the other poor. He teaches us the lessons he learned from his rich father and he also lets us know how money works and how to get money work for us.
