  • The Four

  • The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. For all that's been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. Instead of buying the myths these companies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions.

Narrator is very good. The points the author makes are not supported with facts and the advice he gives are not appropriate for all. More importantly, his advices towards the end of the book are bias to his opinion rather than supported by facts. You would be more encouraged if you listen the book “The end of average “ by Todd Rose.

In troubled times there is an urgency to understand ourselves and our world. We have so many questions, and they tug at us night and day, consciously and unconsciously. In this important volume, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh - one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today - reveals an art of living in mindfulness that helps us answer life's deepest questions and experience the happiness and freedom we desire.

In 1998, three Harvard Business School graduates - two men and one woman - turned down six-figure salaries at big corporations, bet on themselves, and launched their own new companies. By their 10-year reunion, their audacity had paid huge dividends. They'd made many millions of dollars, created hundreds of jobs and left their mark on the world. The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells the compelling and instructive story of how these three young founders did it.

Not recommended

I don’t like to make negative comment on someone’s hard work. But I could not stop doing this time. This book is very rudimentary. Book’s title is misleading. It does not give much insight to make anybody intelligent entrepreneur. It simply narrates life-story of three HBS students and tries to summarize their efforts in some points to guide the reader to his entrepreneurial skills, but hopelessly fails to do so. I think the author simply wants to fool people and make money. I do not recommend this book unless you have no more educational exposure than to high school diploma…………..

  • The Story of Philosophy

Durant lucidly describes the philosophical systems of such world-famous “monarchs of the mind” as Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Spinoza, Kant, Voltaire, and Nietzsche. Along with their ideas, he offers their flesh-and-blood biographies, placing their thoughts within their own time and place and elucidating their influence on our modern intellectual heritage. This book is packed with wisdom and wit.

Though bias, the story of philosophy is a very good introduction to a beginner. It is very useful to anybody who wants to extend the basic understanding of how philosopher's ideas helped to shape human civilization. Narration is so good. It feels like I am listening my favorite music.

More than a million copies of this indispensible investment classic have been sold since its first publication. This fresh version is completely revised by author Burton G. Malkiel to reflect modern financial concerns and trends.

This is a good book for starter and I strongly recommend for anybody who is thinking investing but has no idea where to start. However, if you already possess some college level knowledge on finance, this book might not be for you. .........
