If given a choice, I would refuse to live happily without books. This year too, I came across many great books, some of them are:
Team of Rivals:
Writer Doris has given a new meaning to history writing in this particular book. This book discusses the gems of statesmanship of Lincoln in extreme turbulent times.
The Fifth Discipline:
I DO think the world would be a better place if more people understood/appreciated systems thinking. Don’t be fooled into thinking this book is only for business… anyone who wants a better grasp of systems thinking can start here.
Amusing Ourselves to Death:
I’ve probably done enough lecturing on why I wish people would kill their television. Imagine a world where people did not get ANY of their news from television, and where kids weren’t exposed to television ads. (Cancelling cable and getting shows only from iTunes or DVD will change a life)
A wonderful Neil Gaiman book about following your own heart regardless of what everyone else (society, family, etc.) expects and wants you to do.
What books did you read or planned to read this year?
