2017 reading list – 35 books

“Behind every stack of books is a flood of knowledge.

“Books are the only thing you can buy that make you richer”

Reading is one of my favourite past-times. Personally I prefer non-fiction sci/tech/living books and apparently from the waterstone labeling of my book area I read smart thinking books. Here is a list of the 35 books I read in 2017.

Here are my top picks …

  1. Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t
  2. Dyslexic advantage : Unlocking the hidden potential
  3. Platform Revolution : How Networked Markets are Transforming the Economy–and How to Make Them Work for You
