Not only they are the best sellers, but some of the best rated by readers for their great ideas and practical lessons.
I recommend all because there are some that are really good and that are little known in the Latin world. Moreover, do not sweat it because you have so many choices, either you will bring a lot of knowledge.
As for the order, I have not done in order of importance, so do not give them more importance to the first.
I also encourage you to give me your opinion if you have read any of these books or other you recommend that I have not listed.Would be nice to hear a comment from you.
