Books I’ve Read Last Month

Steve Jobs By Walter Issacson

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Apple Inc.

 

My First thought about this book ” D*mn its 920 pages” . But after reading few chapters I can’t stop reading it until the end of the pages. Reading this book like reading a fairy tales, two young man starting a company  from the garage of their house and became no 1 company in the world.

Of course, in fairy tales there are good characters and evil characters that make this story interesting, in the past villain portrayed by IBM & Microsoft, but in the present is represented by google :)

I think everyone should read it, not just IT people but for everyone who wants to know the story of one actor who has revolutionized the technology of the PC, Animation to Phone.

Maybe I exaggerated a bit so just read the book :)

Books I’ve Read Last Month

I was on mudik trip for almost a week last month so I spent my spare time reading two books which is very interesting in my opinion.

‘The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs’ written by Carmine Gallo is quite interesting because it’s different with others book about steve jobs. It’s not another biography of steve jobs , the book describes how steve jobs create great presentation and also give us step-by-step guide to use steve jobs’s  technique to our presentations. Off course we can’t be like steve jobs but it’s great to learn something from the best isn’t it ? One more thing that makes this book a little bit special because we may never see again steve jobs performance after he resigned from apple last month. So this book is worth to read.

 

 

‘Reality Check’ written by Guy Kawasaki is a book about how to be good enterpreneur, most of the book off course talking IT related topics , but I think it’s really  a great read for anyone. The tagline of this books is ‘The irreverent Guide to outsmarting, outmanaging, and outmarketing your competition.’ cool isn’t, but it’s not the first reason why I bought the book.   I bought this book because the cover was nice and also Guy Kawasaki was former chief evangelist at apple (this is my first book written by Guy Kawasaki). Ok I’m an apple fanboy I confess, but what makes this book interesting is how the book describes in detail the points how to manage your start up business. Some chapters of the book are quick and direct with practical advice. A lot of people will probably find this book to be common sense but I’ve dealt with a lot of people who could benefit by reading this book.
