  • Jonathan Livingston Seagull

    By: Richard Bach   

    Pages: 87

    Self Help

    My recommendation: 9 / 10

    Date read: Before 2013

    Brief review: It's an amazing story about Jonathan Livingston Seagull, a seagull. Jonathan is expelled from his flock for not adhering to the norms of the group. His tenacity to learn and focus makes him a high flyer and one in a million bird. He finds great satisfaction in teaching other seagulls to reach their full potential. Once done, he hands over the command to someone else and leaves to find another flock of seagulls and teach them to fly high. The book is highly motivating and one can draw huge inspiration to follow their dreams and make their own rules. I would suggest you to read this book and ask your children to read it too.

  • You Can Win

    By: Shiv Khera   

    Pages: 269

    Self Help

    My recommendation: 8 / 10

    Date read: Before 2013

    Brief review: Shiv Khera's punch line is 'Winners don't do different things. They do things Differently'. Everyone can win and achieve success in life. A lot of examples makes it easy to relate what the author insists us to do to win big. It's a typical self help book but you will like reading it.

  • Sur/petition

    By: Edward de Bono   

    Pages: 229

    Business, Sales

    My recommendation: 9 / 10

    Date read: Before 2013

    Brief review: It's a brilliant book. It talks about moving beyond competition. That's sur/petition. The message in the book is loud and clear - move out of arrogance, complacency and 'I know it all' attitude, focus on innovation and creativity and think differently. Edward is my favorite author. He gives excellent examples and rationale of differential thinking. Though it was first published in 1992, the principals told in the still holds good. I will strongly recommend this book to all (specially business people and professionals).
