Turnaround: how Carlos Ghosn rescued Nissan by David Magee

I read “turnaround” back in 2003. It was the first year of my bachelor’s in economics. Back then I only knew that Ghosn was a leader in adopting so many cultures having rescued four companies on four continents. This book was enlightening and I highly recommend reading it at this time as Ghosn is facing the harshest turmoil in his life. He has been in a Japanese jail since November 2018 accused of financial wrongdoing.

Thrive by Arianna Huffington

I decided to review the book of a person I discovered through a YouTube video rather than a book. I got to know her as I watched her commencement speech at Smith College in 2013. I fell on her bestselling book. I am speaking about Arianna Huffington who wrote Thrive where she basically redefined success through health, wellbeing, wisdom, and wonder.
