A book so powerful that Mark Cuban named his mega-yacht after it, The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand is a must-read for all entrepreneurs, according to the billionaire.

In multiple interviews, Cuban raves about Rand's novel and cites it as one of his favorite books of all time. In an interview with C-Span in 2006, he shared he had read it "three complete times and an untold number of little snippets and segments."
