A little bit late, but oh well. I have read quite a lot of interesting books, so I thought I’d share. Do we have any book worms present? It’s time for a monthly book club.
1. Non obvious. How to think different, curate ideas & predict the future by Rohit Bhargava
The title took my interest, and although the topic was great and worthy of few evenings, the narrative got me annoyed after few chapters. Instead of presenting the insights, it felt like an author massaged his ego of what did he achieved. The tone is very patronising and very self-congratulatory. In other words: way too much “I”. And for that reason, finishing this book become mundane task.
2. Hug your haters by Jay Baer
Great book, mainly focused on business and how they can deal with complaints and unhappy customers, but I think the knowledge can easily be transfered onto personal brand or even personal relations. A must read for any entrepreneurs or business owners .
3. They ask you answer by Marcus Sheridan
Another great position in the marketing field. The author explains how content can help you bring traffic (and revenue) to your site. Again, it is mainly focused on businesses, but I think anyone creating some form of content will benefit from reading this book.
4. How to be a Productivity Ninja: Worry Less, Achieve More and Love What You Do by Graham Allcott
Nice and easy read that will help you be more productive and deal with mental overload.
5. The Mental Toughness Handbook: A Step-By-Step Guide to Facing Life’s Challenges, Managing Negative Emotions, and Overcoming Adversity with Courage and Poise by Damon Zahariades
Apart from the longest title ever, I would recommend this book to anyone ( especially now, with never-ending lockdown and the toll it takes on everyones mental health). I aims to help you deal with the challenges the world brings you and not creep under the pressures of negativity of hard times.
I always say that situations and struggles we overcome makes us stronger and better equipped for future challenges, and this book follows the similar direction.
6. Reaching down the rabbit hole by Allan Ropper and Brian Burrell
I’m gonna be honest here- I’ve downloaded this book on my kindle, purely because I loved the design of the cover 😂 🙈
Although the title got me thinking it will be a totally different kind of reads, the stories are really interesting and intense, making you attached to the patients the authors writes about. Unfortunately after the story of a young woman diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, it got a bit too intense for me and I still haven’t finished this book.
For anyone interested in medial stories- it’s a good one for you.
