Book Review

Daring greatly by Brene Brown

This book was a big inspiration for me. We live in a world that is uncertain, volatile, and ambiguous. Brown speaks about how we are emotionally exposed. She demonstrates with data and examples, how vulnerability drives courage. Courage does not define losses and wins. It describes our attitude towards life, towards tough situations, towards difficult people. Being vulnerable means that we are not accepting low standards for ourselves. Being vulnerable means that we are enough.

The culture map by Erin Meyer

The book portrays how culture is invisible yet it makes or breaks relations whether those are personal or professional. The author draws on her experience, research and studies, and personal observations. Meyer writes in a very subtle way. At times, the book seems funny as well especially when she speaks about incidents she herself went through.

Anything you want by Derek Sivers

If you run a quick Google search about Derek Sivers you will get to see that he is a writer, an entrepreneur, and an “avid student of life”. I allow myself to say that Sivers is a philosopher and in his book, “anything you want”, he lays the ground for a philosophy about life, work, and Love.

Wisdom at work by Chip Conley

A dear friend recommended this book to me. As I read a related excerpt, I did not know why I would be interested - being in my early thirties - by a book about those who are above age fifty. To be fair, it was not about them per se rather about “how to stay relevant in the second half of your career” as the author puts it.
