Reading List For April 2021
It’s been a long time since I wrote a book recommendation. This book list comprises business and psychology books. Since I have much more control of my time now compared to before, I started reading again. I forgot the feeling of learning and unlearning. The feeling of excitement to learn and feed my curiosity. The feeling of getting new ideas. I hope you find time to read. It’s good for you. Think of it as a mindful exercise. Also, it’s another way of mental detox. Here are my book recommendations:
The world as we know before may never be back again. There will be a new normal. Prof. Scott Galloway gives us an analysis in this book about what’s next after the pandemic. Who will win? Who will lose after the pandemic? This book got you covered. My favorite chapter in this book is when he talks about Big Tech or the Big Four. These companies got more powerful, richer and advanced compared to other big companies. In terms of technological advancements, they will lead the post pandemic world. This book will help you position yourself for the post corona world. You should also watch his YouTube Channel The Prof G Show.
Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World by David Epstein
Are you a generalist or a specialist? Do you consider yourself as a jack of all trades? I’m recommending this book because I know that you’re still finding your path in life. Not everyone figured it out. Generalists are those who juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. I got interested in this book, when I first saw it in a bookstore because it reminds me of myself. I keep following my curiosity and interests.
Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know by Adam Grant
Accepting what we don’t know is the power of unlearning. This will motivate us to learn more, to think again, and accept our limitations. Learning to learn and unlearn is a skill. A skill that we need to have for us to become better. Our belief systems shape our reality. Unlearning some beliefs that hinders us should be our goal. We should always surround ourselves with people who challenge our thought process. Think Again by Adam Grant is a must read for everyone.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
Apple is a product of Steve Jobs’ imagination and innovation. They wouldn’t be as big as they are today without Steve. Walter Isaacson is one of my favorite authors. He has this brilliant way of putting the reader inside the life of the person he’s writing about(in this book it’s Steve). This book is full of lessons, especially for those who aim to be entrepreneurs.
These are my book recommendations for April.
