Favorite Books

My first experience reading a book (outside of academics) was when my father gave me “Tough Times Never Last, but Tough People Do” by Robert Schuller in 2001. I was 17 then, just out of school and had gone to give the 5 day SSB (Service Selection Board) interview after clearing the NDA written exam.

That interview obviously did not materialize, but the book had a lasting effect. As I got into engineering after that, I was overloaded by academic books once again. During the end of engineering, I read the “Da Vinci Code” which was vastly popular back then. That was my first brush with fiction…

As I started my professional life, I started reading more books, both fiction and non-fiction. I read books on business, management, leadership and self-help. Below you will find some my favorite books –
