Recommended Books

 From my childhood, I devoured books. Reading a great book is a way to learn fast, with the important things distilled. It is like looking in the mind of author and if the book is good through the mind of characters. Books are the windows to a different worlds. Books are great way to learn, escape and to examine. Of course it is not the only way or the best way or sufficient as it needs to be supplemented with real work and real life experience. But it is a great way to see new things which you don't see in your immediate surroundings or things which cannot be learnt directly.

Zero to One - Competition is for losers


1. Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus - John Gray - This book by John Gray is a must read for everyone. This explains how man and women are different. These are not hard and fast but everyone can identify with what is said which nicely sets up to understand and accept what we already might not have experienced.

Dushka Zapata's quora answers and her books absolute must reads. 

Making and keeping big changes:

1. Switch - Chip & Dan Heath - We really understand what it takes to make big changes and keep them. Was really helpful to me in making habit changes and getting new habits.
