No matter what stage in your entrepreneurial journey, one great way to improve your startup game is by reading great books. Entrepreneur.com contributor John Rampton recently outlined a handful of must-read books in his recent article called "14 Books Every Entrepreneur Should Read in '14.

In this video, we chat with Rampton about one more book entrepreneurs need to read.
