Top Ten Network Marketing Books
To Build Your Business

network marketing booksThere are a lot of network marketing books out there but which ones would a top income earner suggest? Here is the reality, not all readers are leaders but all leaders ARE readers. This post will share the best MLM books for you and your business.

What are the best books on MLM?

There are certain qualities you want to develop if you are going to become a top MLM leader. The main qualities are:

- Having realistic expectations
- Leadership
- Communication
- Marketing
- Presenting
- Mindset

Here I will break down by category the network marketing books by topic that I suggest.

Perhaps the Best MLM Book Ever Created

The reason I really like this MLM book is it is sooo based on reality. It tells you the landmines of MLM, what happens when leaders leave or when your upline pitches you something else. This could ONLY have been written by someone who has been in the trenches. Mark Yarnell has earned over $30 million in this industry and I highly suggest his book Your First Year in Network Marketing.

Not just a book on MLM but great for mindset

My friend Noah St Johns book, The Secret Code of Success, was given to me from a good friend and I devoured it. This is one of the best books I have ever read on figuring out what is slowing you down.

Must Have Multi Level Marketing Book on Leadershipnetwork marketing books

OK, so this, again, is NOT just for MLM but it really applies so perfectly to our industry, it is a must have. John Maxwells 21 Irrefutable Laws for Leadership is awesome. I just finished it for the second time and it gets better and better. IF you are to make the big money in this industry, you HAVE to embrace leadership and move past your current level of thinking and get to that next level.

Best MLM Books on Sales and Marketing

Because most network marketers are so poor at communicating, I do certainly suggest getting better at sales and marketing as it will help you write better emails, facebook statuses, etc. A few books on marketing I would suggest would be Dan Kennedy’s Ultimate Sales Letter, Moine’s Unlimited Selling Power, and Bauer’s How to persuade those who don’t want to be persuaded. All are pretty easy readings and will help you.

So You Wanna Become a Speaker?

Here is the problem you will run into if you read many books on speaking, you will realize that a lot of books on speaking are written by speakers wanting to get speaking gigs and they published a book just to say they are an author, it’s true. However, there are some great books on speaking from the stage. Two basic ones that everyone should read are both by Tony Jeary, How to Inspire any audience and Life is a series of presentations. An advanced book for selling from stage is Presenting Magically. Keep in mind, if your goals are just to make 10-15 thousand a month from home, you may never have to learn how to present, however, if you wanna make the big money, you better work on your presenting skills.

The Final Network Marketing Book Suggestion

One book I have to include in this list is Brendon Burchards The Charge. Each chapter is so jam packed with MEAT it is ridiculous. I would suggest reading this book in a weird way. Read it once without taking any notes or trying to process every little suggestion he has and THEN go back and re-read it and do notes or whatever you do with normal books. This book is definitely a game changer.

What Network Marketing books did I leave out? Which ones do you like of my ten suggestions? Comment below, remind me of a great book I forget to include!

  2. I think that Think and Grow Rich, Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty & The Magic Of Thinking Big are all good books as well.

    Network Marketing is a powerful industry and it’s good to know that there are some great books that can really help you prosper.

  9. LOVE Mark Yarnell. I highly recommend his second book, Your BEST Year in Network Marketing.

    Also very high on my list are John Maxwell’s Today Matters (probably my #1 favorite) and Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Successful People

  10. I envy your kids, having you for a dad. I could have used your inspiration when I was growing up.

  11. I am surprised you didn't include 'Beach Money' by Jordan Adler. Have you read it?

    [Reply]

    Ray Higdon Reply:

    Excellent choice

    [Reply]

  12. I’d really recommend John Fogg’s two books (his second written with Ted Nuyten): The Greatest Networker in the World and Your Plan B!

    These keep inspiring me in my business and are terrific insights into the whole MLM world through the comments of those who have made it through their commitment and efforts.

  13. My first week in my networking business I went to Barnes and Noble and chose the very first book on your list: Your first year in Network Marketing and it was invaluable as I began my first ever Network Marketing Business. However, Atlas Shrugged, which I read in the winter of 2011 set me on the path that I believe has led me to my new career and focus. Thanks for the suggested readings.

    [Reply]

    Ray Higdon Reply:

    Atlas Shrugged is an excellent book

    [Reply]

  14. I would like to add, Darren Hardy's book, The Compound Effect as a must read for life in general and Jim Rohn's audio program, The Art of Exceptional Living, both keep me focused and driven.

    Thanks for the input

  15. Ray, You keep on delivering invaluable insight with what we need to read and as one of my mentors told me readers are leaders. That list of books is awesome. I have 2 more to go to get to The Charge. Thanks

    2. Rich Dad Poor Dad – Have a rich mindset.
    3. Business School – Better understanding of what Network Marketing is.
    4. First Year In Network Marketing –
    5.21 Irrefutable laws of leadership – Becoming a leader.
    6. The Ultimate Sales letter – becoming good at communication.
    7. Go for NO –

  20. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, although is not an easy reading, I think all of us must read it and implement it!!!

    Ray Higdon Reply:

    thanks Luis

    [Reply]

  21. Hi Ray
    great selection, I would include The 7 Habits ( and others by Covey) also How to Win Friends and influence people, and for looking after what you earn The Richest Man In Babylon ( 1954 and still on the book shelves).

  22. Wow!!! Thank’s everyone!

    A few days ago I called Mr. Higdon and told him I finished the book, “The Secret Code of Success” that he recommended me…awesome book for cleaning out the junk in my head and getting clear. All the way through the book the writer kept “Quoting” the words I was thinking and it felt like Mr. St. John was speaking directly to me.

    Thank you for writing this post Mr. Higdon! This is a result of the Universe in action. I called for a few things and look what happened: An explosion of awesome recommendations!

    I am DEFINITELY bookmarking this post!!!

    Talk to you soon Mr. Higdon!!

  23. Awesome post, Ray. These books you’ve recommended definitely belong in every network marketer’s library. I really love John Maxwell’s books and think that most of his books will help one become a better business person and leader.

  24. Great list Ray! I’ve read most on your list so far. Only a couple I’d not heard of yet, but are now on my radar. A few of the others are either on my Amazon wish list or in the stack of books waiting for me on my kitchen counter. :)

    A MLM must read list for me would HAVE to include:
    (books that I’ve read)

    *MLM Blueprint by Kody Bateman
    *Making The First Circle Work by Randy Gage
    *How To Build A Multi-Level Money Machine by Randy Gage
    *Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
    *The Go-Giver by Bob Burg & John David Mann
    *Go-Givers Sell More by Bob Burg & John David Mann
    *The Greatest Networkers in the World by John Milton Fogg (facts tell, stories sell)
    *Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
    *The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder
    and
    *Beach Money by Jordan Adler
    I saw you had that one listed as related topics, but it’d have to be on my list of must reads too.

  25. Hey Ray,

    these are some great suggestions. I’m reading a really good one by Les Giblin’s “How To Have Confidence and Power In Dealing With People” . This is a book I suggest every network marketer to read. It’s helping me a lot

  26. Thanks again Ray, this is so beneficial to me. I put Tony Jeary’s book for my marketing and speaker book collection. It is about to get something from the basic down to an expert level of being a speaker and doing great in internet marketing.
