    Brief review: Rumi lived in the 13th century. He is considered to be one of the best poets and writers who ever lived. This book is a collection of 105 short stories and fables with such deep meaning that will make you dive into the wonderland of your own world as you will relate it to your own life and the people around you. Even after a thousand years, Rumi's words echo in our hearts and illuminate like a shining star in a dark night. If you love Rumi's writings, you can't ignore this book. If you haven't known Rumi, this short book will be a good start. Teenagers can also read.

    Brief review: I have been following Derek Sivers for many years now. He inspires me with his life and work. His message is to live with freedom and do what you love. He walks his talk. In this book, he encourages readers to pursue their dreams and take courageous decisions. He gives numerous ideas on marketing and branding your product. He also gives valuable insights into human behavior which if we apply in our own lives, can give fantastic results. Written in simple words with tonnes of examples, you will enjoy reading this book.

  • The Book of Joy

    By: Douglas Abrams   

    Pages: 351

    Self Help

    My recommendation: 8 / 10

    Date read: 8th Dec'20

    Brief review: The book is filled with golden words, motivation, and inspiration from two of the world leaders, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Southern Africa. In simple words and beautiful examples, they provide life lessons on living with joy. This is not a book that is meant to teach us. Rather, it feels like a conversation with two legends who have themselves lived a rich and fulfilling life. From forgiveness to gratitude and fear to generosity, the reader will surely find peace and get the conviction to stay happy all the time. A brilliant work by Douglas Abrams.

  • The Power of Habit

    By: Charles Duhigg   

    Pages: 400

    Self Help

    My recommendation: 9 / 10

    Date read: 27th Mar'2019

    Brief review: It's an amazing book. In this highly researched book, Charles Duhigg makes a strong case about the impact our habits can have on our lives; both positive and negative. The author doesn't just talks about personal habits but also about how organisations can rise and fall due to its habits & culture. You will be surprised to know how multinational companies are taking advantage of shoppers habit to sell more, how routine checks can avoid dangerous mistakes in hospitals and how a simple break in between work can increase your weight. A few concerns were; the examples and stories were quite long and a few chapters seemed repetitive and boring. Still, I would highly recommend this book.
