Mark Cuban: Word Association

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." Ten years later, we can only guess how much that number has increased!

He further explained to Slate.com:

However, one of our favorite quotes was when Cuban confessed the effect The Fountainhead has on him to C-Span. "You know it's funny because I'll pick it up when I need motivation but then if I read too far I get too much motivation and I get too jittery so I have to put it down."

A book that inspires Mark Cuban so much it makes him "jittery"? Sign us up.
