I was really into books (anything that my mom got me from a local library) back when I was a kid in India.

I briefly (few years, lol!) put off reading while I was working and going to college.

I got back into books couple years ago and have read few books since then. I started off with fiction but moved to non-fiction mainly business/mental-toughness/technical,etc.

Here are some books that have had a phenomenal influence in my life especially the way I approach it. I highly recommend them.

Some books, I discovered online (through Amazon's recommendation). However, I bought many books after they were recommended in podcasts, articles, books and by people in my network.

I'm always looking for good books. Reach out to me if you have any recommendations.
