Every Book Naval Ravikant Mentioned on Twitter (with Tweets!)

Every Book Naval Ravikant Mentioned on Twitter (with Tweets!)

Soon after releasing "Every Book Elon Musk Mentioned on Twitter," I saw this request:


drig2510, this one's for you.

It might be a year late, but it took me months to go through all of Naval's 21,000+ tweets!

Fair warning: Naval has a reading habit that, as a professional wordsmith, I am required to describe as "voracious."

... In other words, this list has 144 books!

So sit back, grab some snacks, and enjoy this trip down the reading list of one of the most interesting minds in Silicon Valley 🙂

Sidenote: If you like this post, please help us by sharing it on Twitter. It would be awesome if Naval sees it.

Update (05/13/2020): Naval saw it!!! 🎉🎉🎉 He retweeted this tweet. Thank you, internet! 🤗
