And here are the 5 books I liked the most of all above.
- Design of everyday things
It took almost 3 months to finish this book. Hard to read but this has built my design skills. Would love to re-read in future. A must read for everyone in product design.
- Diva Swapna
A masterpiece for Education and the Gita for teachers. If we can have 1000 teachers as explained in the book, India can conquer the world.
- Golden tap
Experiences of Kashyap are valuable. He has defected the history of e-commerce very well into this book.
- Marketing 3.0
The Kotler “Dada” is again making hit with this book. Whatever you say he is a marketing genius and will remain forever.
- Vision from the Vedas
This tiny book written by G Narayana and published by AMA goes through a certain portion of the Veda and translates them into meaningful way. We get amazed at seeing the science, maths, and philosophy out of it.
