Great Guide Books for Entreprenuers

A Listmania! list by Terry W. Sprouse "Investor and Author" (Tucson, Arizona)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Often people learn to create jobs by watching what other people do. I started a business fixing up houses and renting them out because a friend of mine in college bought a new house for a growing family and rented out his old house. Several years later, a light bulb went on over my head when I thought about what he had done. Good guide books that tell us how to do something are the next best thing to watching someone do it."
