  • The Psychology of Money

    By: Morgan Housel   

    Pages: 238

    Business, Investments

    My recommendation: 10 / 10

    Date read: 4th Feb'2021

    Brief review: It is one of the finest books I have read on managing money which has a lot to do with one's behavior. Morgan Housel shares his own journey of wealth creation as well as his experiences and learnings along the way. It is truly timeless. Morgan suggests that we need to follow a simple strategy rather than being hyperactive while handling our money. He says, even being average can make us wealthy and supports his view with real examples. It is not just a business book. Apart from money, it gives a solid perspective on living a happy life and its relationship with money. It is a simple and easy read. Everyone must read this one.

  • Rework

    By: Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson   

    Pages: 271

    Business

    My recommendation: 10 / 10

    Date read: 20th Jan'2021

    Brief review: Simply brilliant. Written by successful entrepreneurs, it is filled with practical ideas that will encourage you to make meaningful changes you should make in your own life and at work. Some of the advice given in the book will seem radical, yet you will wonder why you never thought that way. Do less. Say no more often. Meetings are toxic. Long to-do lists don't get done. Make tiny decisions. Underdo your competition. Speed changes everything, and many other small bites make it a very interesting read. Though it is classified as a business book, it should be read by everyone.

    Biography, Inspiration

    My recommendation: 8 / 10

    Date read: 9th Apr'18

    Brief review: Steve Martin was one of the world's most sought after stand up comedian during the 1970's. But it didn't last long. Not because people stopped laughing at his performance but because he chose to leave. In this book, Steve tells his story straight from the heart. How he reached from empty halls to massive attendance of over 50,000 people in his shows and why decided to abruptly end his performances. He candidly shares his personal challenges, emptiness and reconciliation with his family. A true story of sheer hard work and dedication. An inspiring and motivating read.
