Monthly Book Recommendation

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 6 books (3 paperback and 3 Audiobooks), thanks to audible!

Books I read in December 2021:

  1. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell- A fantastic book. Soo interestingly presented. You don’t feel like you’ve read too much, you’ll instead you’ll feel like to keep reading. Success, what it takes, factors that give an unfair advantage to some, etc.
  2. Mastery by George Leonard – a good Book. But compared to ‘Mastery’ by Robert Greene, this book is so much less in value. This is a very short book. There are a few key concepts about the Allies and enemies for mastery and the concept of the archetype of students in the path of mastery is helpful.
  3. Good to Great by Jim Collins. Hats off to his work! The author is giving you the data and inferences drawn from his team’s study of companies that became good to great. 15 years of data. If you want to know how great companies are great, and what all it takes to build a company that’s not just good but great, this is the best book!
  4. Wings of Fire by A.P.J Abdul Kalam- A very simple and yet very clear depiction of his life timeline. The sad part is, there’s less of his reflections and his inferences, it’s just like a report of major events. But still, it is very clear from his journey of what are all the factors that contribute to success and how luck is a big part of it. By the way, I listened to this book on audible, narrated by Gireesh Karnad, it was so enthralling, with all the music, sound effects, and all.
  5. Art of War by Sun Tzu – This is not a book, this is like notes, a reference. There’s a lot of strategies for a combination of conditions. And memorizing all of them, I think is unnecessary if you’re not in a battle or political situation. So I think it’s a bit overhyped for today’s context.

Enjoyed reading all of them. Now let’s come to my book list for next month.

Books I plan on reading next:

  1. Linchpin
  2. Zen in the art of archery
  3. Lifespan
  4. Behave

My Book Update:

  • I could just start moving the boulder in the last week. I realized one of the major causes for which I wanted to publish this book. I wanted you to know. So that pushed me to get back on track. 

Let me know what are you reading currently and what are your favorite books of all time!

Thank You,

Yours Loving,
