We should start off by saying that there is no such thing as the ‘best’ book of all times, as each literary masterpiece ever written is unique in its own way. We also cannot judge a book by its cover, but we can very well judge its overall appeal based on how many people have read it.
We have therefore decided to put together a top 10 best selling books of all time so that we will be able to get a better understanding of what the masses of people appear to enjoy.
Interestingly enough, most of the titles on the following list our fantasy novels, which would also be the case if we were to put together a top 20 list instead. Long story short, here are the top 10 best selling books of all time.
10Napoleon Hill – Think and Grow Rich
We will see different literary genres on this list – yet none of them will be self help books. Think and Grow Rich is a motivational book by Napoleon Hill which was published in 1937. The philosophy that the book teaches is aimed at promoting personal development in all spheres of life – not necessary in wealth acquisition as the title may seem to suggest. Today, this motivational book has sold over 70 million copies world wide.
