9 Books I’ve Gifted and Recommended the Most

In the last five years, I’ve gifted and recommended a few books to friends and colleagues over and over again. Seven of them were written in the last two decades, one in 1992, and one in 1967. You can say they’re not “timeless.” Yet, they’ll remain relevant until the time robots take over the world.

These book recommendations include books that offer practical advice to improve our mindset, work ethic, and add value to the world. The principles in them are simple enough to read, absorb, and apply to anyone regardless of how much they love reading or the stage of life they’re in. All they need is the desire to learn and improve.

Listen to my recommendations for nine books below.
