The $100 was an easy east and I found it quiet motivating. Every time I had to put the book down I was thinking about my hobbies and things I liked to do.
The $100 Startup won't tell WHAT to sell, but it does a good job at on how to make money from your idea. There are also plenty of case studies and a list of names and their business of people that have been able to start their own business very very little capitol. Give it a try.
