Sunny Chandru Mahbubani quoted this review on Play Store and rated 5 stars.
“This a fantastic book on the latest technology and where the tech might be headed in the future. Not only Peter Thiel talks about technology, he also briefly touches on other advanced topics such as string theory and financial crisis. I highly suggest you to read this book.”
Harshan Vallabh quoted this review on Play Store and rated 5 stars.
“Peter Thiel’s ideas are simply just different.His whole concept of economic theory is different to what we learn in school and its practical experience being at the heart of the technology revolution. Reading this book gives one insight as to which problems to solve in future. Like he said, there’s a need to go from 0 to 1 and not from 1 to n. Lots of people can do the latter.”
By Daniel Kahneman
Daniel Kahneman’s book has been the international bestseller. He is awarded with the Nobel prize.
In the iconic book, the author tells us the difference and the impact of how we think affects our life.
He teaches us through his book about a way of thinking which relieves us from stress and how we can turn tables in our professional and personal lives.
He has categorized thinking in two ways, one is fast and intuitive and second is slow and rational.
And gives thoughts about why we think some things in our life in a particular way and in obvious ways.
Random review of this book from Play Store:
Ben Gillingham quoted this review on Play Store and rated 5 stars.
“This book is a masterpiece, head and shoulders above any I have read about human behaviour. It is densely packed- I learned new lessons in every chapter and couldn’t manage more than a couple chapters in a sitting. It is so beautifully written, with a light-hearted, humble style, which makes complex subject matter accessible to someone (like me) who has never studied this subject.”
S Shakeel Ahmed quoted this review on Play Store and rated 5 stars.
“If you are totally confused and don’t know what is going on with you. This book will give you direction. Wonderful book recommend everyone.”
Everyone must read a book as it improves your vocabulary and knowledge but it helps long term benefits like you will decrease the risk of dementia in older age and it changes here introjection and personality traits into positive direction.
Being a working professional if you decide to start a business, then with all the pressure of maintaining financial balance, you may think it might be a bad idea to start a business with the risk of losses.
Rather than thinking cynical you must read these books mentioned above which will really change your perspective and open your mind and prepare you to be an Entrepreneur and start your own company.
