    Brief review: Naval Ravikant is a successful individual and professional who lives a life of choice. The book offers many tips on living a good life, making good decisions, and becoming successful. I found it very practical and inspiring.

You will definitely like this book. It is available free in PDF or you can prefer to buy it from stores. A must-read for everyone.

  • Anything You Want

    By: Derek Sivers   

    Pages: 92

    Business, Inspiration, Sales

    My recommendation: 9 / 10

    Date read: 6th Apr'18

    Brief review: I am a fan of Derek Sivers. His thoughts and blogs are inspirational. Being a budding musician he could not find a  distribution company for his album. That led to him creating one of the largest online music stores in the world for independent artists named CDBABY. Around 2008, he sold his company for $22 million and donated the proceeds to charity. In this book, Derek tells his story as it happened. It's refreshing, inspirational and motivational. A no nonsense book with absolute clarity on secret of happiness and how you can also create something big. A must read.

  • Go-Givers Sell More

    By: Bob Burg and John David Mann   

    Pages: 190


    My recommendation: 8 / 10

    Date read: 12th Mar'18

    Brief review: Selling should not a win-lose game between sellers and buyers. It has to be a win-win. Burg and Mann demonstrates through their effective examples that selling need not be a stressful activity. It could in fact, be a rich experience leading to a joyful life. To become an exceptional sales person, one should focus on giving rather than wanting. The law of compensation says that your rewards will be directly proportionate to number lives you touch. One should be focused on the other person, ask good questions, be authentic and create exceptional value for the buyer. Like their previous book, 'The Go-Giver', this book will definitely help you change your mindset from being a seller to a giver and thereby selling more.

    Brief review: There is nothing new in the book which you have not heard or not read before. Still, it's a great reminder of how beautiful life is and how we can live every bit of it. Simple words and simple examples but deep meaning and impact.  Having life and living it are two different things. It will surely re-emphasize your priorities in life and help you regain your focus. It's just an hour of reading but a lifetime of wisdom.
