The monthly Book recommendation is a short blog post/ newsletter I write to you on what books I read in the previous month and what I’ll be reading next. This month I could read 4 books.
Books I read in October 2021:
- The Everyday Hero Manifesto by Robin Sharma who’s one of my favorite authors. His philosophies and mental models had helped me a lot in transforming myself as a better person and as a high performer in everything that I do. He has inspired me to be and DO GOOD ANYHOW! That being said, there’s no doubt that this book is one of his greatest works of his and it became dear to me because this book is written dear to his heart, this book is partly his memoir and as usual, his Life-enhancing philosophies! A must-read for all fans of Robin Sharma.
- Attitude Is Everything by Jeff Keller. Very good book. It is a book wherein you already know what’s inside that book, it is definitely a must-read because it reminds you of those simple facts of life and alerts your behavior to be coherent with them.
- The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. A decent book, although I won’t say it is a must-read book. Probably it is a great book for beginners who are just starting to read books on non-fiction. This book is also like the previously mentioned, but instead of keeping the simple facts simple, the author has unnecessarily prolongated by giving more and elaborated examples. And one of the main reasons for this prolongation is due to the author’s stubborn tendency to mention the Bible and its words whenever possible or not. It is clearly seen that the author has written this book to attract people to Christianity and perhaps to convert them from other religions to Christianity. An ideal author is a person who is unbiased and has a clear vision of the reality.
- The Wellness Sense by Om Swami. Easily the best book of the month! Really amazing book! The basics of Ayurveda, Tantra, and Yoga itself are enough to improve your understanding of your body and start making changes to your lifestyle and habits to live a way better and healthier life. Everything from helping you recognize your body type to guiding you to make changes to your lifestyle accordingly, the author has given a very simple yet descriptive and life-changing manual to the readers. A must-read book to all!
Enjoyed reading all of them. Now let’s come to my book list for next month.
Books I plan on reading next:
- Influence by Robert Cialdini
- Quiet by Susan Cain
- The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
- The Art of Practicing by Madeline Bruser
- Outliers by Malcom Gladwell
- 10% Happier by Dan Harris
- The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho
My Book Update:
- The first week of this month was productive, I edited the entire first draft manually and then updated it on the soft copy as well.
- Then, I wanted to give it a break. And I’m still continuing to sleep on it.
- And as a result, fresh insights and thoughts are emerging to clarify and strengthen the philosophies in the book.
- I’ll probably get back to work now.
Let me know what are you reading currently and what are your favorite books of all time!
