The Hard Thing About Hard Things is one of the best business books. This book talks about the hardest decisions Ben had to make during challenging & awful situations. This gives you a good understanding of the challenges you will face as an entrepreneur. A lot of entrepreneurs have recommended this book. Apart from that, I'm Feeling Lucky is the only one of these four books that I've read.
