Books

Sumo Man somehow felt I would not go through with this. So just to prove him wrong, here I go:

Total Books I Own: Without including the eBooks that I have, should be over 500. Including eBooks, should be over 5000.

Last book I Bought:One Hundred Years of Solitude (by Gabriel Garcia Marquez) and India: A Wounded Civilization (by V.S. Naipaul)

Last Book I Read: The graphic novels Sin City and Watchmen. Currently reading V for Vendetta

Five Books That Mean a Lot to Me:
  • Influence: A Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini
  • Shackleton's Way by Margot Morrel
  • A Road Less Travelled by Scott M Peck
  • The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of the World Order by Samuel P Huntington
  • Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto

Can't believe you fell for it,
Muwahahaha ... :-)

On a serious note, do say more about Shackleton's Way and Clash of Civilizations.

I wouldn't be surprised if you're planning a commentary on Cialdini.. haven't seen you seperated from 'The power of incfluence' since Gachibowli!

RB Man: Have a presentation on Influence scheduled for this Saturday. :)

Sumo Man, you gotta read Shackleton's way as well as Clash of Civilizations. Shackleton's way for its amazing lessons on leadership, Clash of Civilizations for an excellent understanding the new post cold-war order that is cropping up.

Beautiful books both. My money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with either.

Cheers,
D.
