    My recommendation: 9 / 10

    Brief review: Every challenge or difficulty has a flip-side which contains an opportunity. In this book, Adam Jackson gives inspiring and motivational examples of many known and unknown lives which turned their adversity to their advantage. You will get to read the story of Julio Iglesias whose dream was shattered to become Real Madrid's goalkeeper because of an accident and how he went on to become one of the biggest selling recording artist in history. You will be inspired by Dan Ariely who survived 70% third degree burns and went on to become an author of international repute. You will be motivated by Peter Jones story of becoming a multimillionaire after going broke in business early in life. I loved reading this book and I am sure you too would find it to be a good read.

  • Mastery

    By: Robert Greene   

    Pages: 318

    Motivation, Self Help

    My recommendation: 6 / 10

    Date read: 5th Nov'17

    Brief review: The book is about getting mastery in your chosen field which will eventually yield and wealth and power. Robert Greene did extensive research on the subject and shares the secret path to greatness citing examples of several known personalities of the the past and present. The message of the book is good and you will surely get a dose of motivation and executable ideas. On the flip side, you may find the examples pretty long and it gets boring a bit. I also did not like the format of the book which is not very user friendly.

  • Tools of Titans

    By: Tim Ferriss   

    Pages: 674

    Health, Motivation, Self Help

    My recommendation: 10 / 10

    Date read: 20th Oct'17

    Brief review: I wish I could give it a rating of 11/10. It's an awesome book. Though it's a long read but it's totally worth the time. The book is divided in 3 sections - healthy, wealthy & wise. Unless you are a complete fitness freak, you can skim/skip through the first section about health. It's too micro and too detailed. I almost threw the book after the first 50 pages. I am glad I didn't as the next two section are worth a goldmine. Beside his own thoughts, Tim interviews over 100 world celebrities and summarizes their wisdom. My top 3 takeaways from the book - (1) Make health as #1 priority in life (2) You have limited time on earth. Use it well and do that you can do best. (3) Take chances & believe in yourself. Absolutely a must read for one and all.

    Pages: 124

    Motivation, Self Help

    My recommendation: 6 / 10

    Date read: 17th Sep'17

    Brief review: Daniel Coyle is a bestselling author. This book contains 52 simple,though powerful tips that will help you improve your skills. Some of the tips that I found interesting were; Steal without apology, be willing to be stupid, work like a careful carpenter, try to build one perfect chunk each day, practice alone, use the sandwich technique, to learn it more deeply; teach it. The small and simple nuggets mentioned in the book can make a deep connection with your mind and habits. A good read for beginners.
