First review on My Book

Rayne Anderson is a fellow blogger. She is getting started on her book blog: Rayne Reads. She has been kind and generous enough to leave a review after reading my book: A Blogger’s Manifesto.

I want to thank Rayne for her time, effort and hope she gained something from the book.

Thank you, everyone, for buying the book. I hope you enjoyed it as well. If you’d like to say a few words, please provide your feedback here on Goodreads.com

BOOK REVIEW: The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell

The Diary of a Bookseller by Shaun Bythell
Genres: Nonfiction
four-stars

Pages: 315, Kindle Edition

Published: September, 2017 by Profile Books

Cover Rating: 5/5

I have always loved books about books or booksellers. I find booksellers are one heck of an interesting personalities and more, they get observe equally interesting ones. Interesting personality, a bookseller? Why? ‘Cause they read books that no one else reads or majority of people do not and sometimes they write about their observations of customers/bibliophiles in their shops. The whole concept is a bit funny too.

BOOK REVIEW: Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari

Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
Genres: Nonfiction
five-stars

100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. 

If you want to read at least one book in 2018, make sure you read Harari’s Sapiens.

The book is recommend by many over the past few years on the Internet but few have talked about why read this book and in my opinion one of the best published work in the history of mankind. I know Harari’s work is famous and that might be a turn off for you but give me a chance in this review to let you convince to give it a shot in the coming year. Read this one book, even if you don’t have any reading plans or generally do not read books, or haven’t read it.

Why? Because this book will transform the way you think about everyone you are surrounded and yourself. Harari’s work which was published in 2011 for the first time, did not spike my interest until later this year and I think, it has a major impact on me. In Sapiens, Harari talks about how out of 6 similar species our own, Homo Sapiens, not only survived over 70,000 years including the environmental conditions but is actually the reality of How Humans Got Smart?

What to Read in 2018? A List of books worth your time

In 2017, I started my voracious reading journey with the word “productivity” in mind. In my workflow, I wanted to be as productive as I could but later realise that it has its limitations. First limitation that I come across as I continued on my path as I found that there is a vast field and there are sub-niches that fall under that word. I had to make a decision on how will I benefit more in terms of productivity itself but more importantly having/developing that mindset? I came across 28 books throughout the year. Few were recommendations from people who share similar goals as mine and few were picks of my own.

The Dravidian by Kalyan C. Kankanala
Genres: Fiction
four-stars

Pages: 178

Published: October 2017

Cover Rating: 5/5

I have said this so many times on my blog, few Indian authors write about the ancient cultural knowledge that this diverse nation possess. Dr. Kalyan C. Kankanala does that in his latest book, The Dravidian. Dravidians are an ancient tribe residing in South India since the age of mythical stories such as The Ramayana. What more interesting about this book is that it is a legal thriller.

BOOK REVIEW: Tribe of Mentors – Short Life Advice from the Best in the World by Timothy Ferriss

Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss
Genres: Nonfiction, Business, Entrepreneurship
four-stars

Pages: 624, Kindle Edition

Published: 21st November 2017, by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Cover Rating: 5/5 (hint: something is in symmetry, see carefully)

I get excited when I hear Tim Ferriss is going to release a new book. The guy knows what to write, or at least how to present information in terms of mere words. Last year, I spent 18 days on his Tools of Titans which came out in the month of December. I haven’t spent more than 15 days on Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace and War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. Tim’s books tend to cover a vast amount of information that is not easy for a human brain to process. After putting my nose in his other books such as The 4 Hour Work Week and The 4 Hour Body earlier this year, I had a plan.
