Books

 A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. – Neil Gaiman

My mother, who I consider one of the smartest women in the world, taught me to love reading. Today, I cannot imagine my life without books. I read different types and kinds of books. In this post, I’ve mentioned some of the books for professional development. Right now I’m reading three books at the same time…
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera

Auschwitz: the Nazis & the ‘Final Solution’ by Laurence Rees

The Black Swan: the Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
