Greetings , mortals! It’s been over six thousand years since man invented writing and reading and now we are at an age where there are more books than Zubats in a cave! And that’s saying something!

IS TOOO DAMN HIGH!

But “Hey!” you say , “Just because we have so many books now , doesn’t mean they are good!” And you’re right , so , I thought we would take a stroll down the good books lane! Be cautious though , do not the street is long and you might not be able to get out once you’re in it. The street will give you joy and happiness in legions but it also might cause depression depending on what you are reading! One thing is certain , you will feel your soul fly!

DISCLAIMER: THE FOLLOWING LIST MIGHT LEAVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL FAVOURITES.

SUCK IT. THESE ARE JUST 10 BOOKS THAT WE THINK YOU SHOULD READ , NOT THE BEST BOOKS EVER. IF WE GET A GOOD RESPONSE WE MIGHT CONTINUE SUGGESTING BOOKS AS A NEW SERIES.

1. Wildcards

From fiction’s  most notorious serial killer comes the legendary Science fiction series – Wildcards!

An alien bomb is detonated above the planet, shedding an indiscriminate gene virus on an Earth barely recovered from the horrors of World War ll. The result: Wild Cards. ACES blessed with superhuman powers and JOKERS cursed with bizarre physical and mental disfigurements.

And so began a series of shared-world anthologies that would bring the metahuman into the real world – our world. Everything up until 1946 is how we remember it. After that watershed year, many things will have changed.

2.Brida

Brida is a novel by  Paulo Coelho , The author of the alchemist It is the story of a beautiful young Irish girl and her quest for knowledge. On her journey she meets a wise man who teaches her to overcome fear and a woman who teaches her how to dance to the hidden music of the world. They see in her a gift, but must let her make her own voyage of discovery. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to transform herself. The story is neatly woven around the ancient belief of witchcraft and related to the present world in an interesting way.

3.Confessions of an economic hitman

 

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is a book written by John Perkins and published in 2004. It provides Perkins’ account of his career with consulting firm Chas. T. Main in Boston. Before employment with the firm, he interviewed for a job with the National Security Agency (NSA). Perkins claims that this interview effectively constituted an independent screening which led to his subsequent hiring by Einar Greve, a member of the firm (and alleged NSA liaison) to become a self-described “economic hit man”.

4. The tales of Dunk and Egg

This set of novels by George R.R. Martin is set in the A song of ice and fire universe but about 90 years preceding the start of ‘A game of thrones’.Dunk is Ser Duncan The Tall,and Egg is Aegon V.So far , there are 3 books in this series namely  ‘The Hedge Knight , ‘The sworn sword’ , and  ‘The mystery knight’  (Yes , I did just use an Oxford comma).

5.House of cards -Micheal Dobbs

The books on which the hit new Netflix series with the same name is based is a definite must read for all the fans of the show.

Francis Urquhart is Chief Whip. He has his hands on every secret in politics – and is willing to betray them all to become Prime Minister

 

6.The Black Company

The Black Company is a series of fantasy novels by author Glen Cook. The series combines elements of epic fantasy and dark fantasy as it follows an elite-mercenary unit, The Black Company, through roughly forty years of its approximately five hundred year history.

7.The demon haunted world

The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark is a book by astrophysicist Carl Sagan, which was first published in 1995.

The book is intended to explain the scientific method to laypeople, and to encourage people to learn critical or skeptical thinking. It explains methods to help distinguish between ideas that are considered valid science, and ideas that can be considered pseudoscience. Sagan states that when new ideas are offered for consideration, they should be tested by means of skeptical thinking, and should stand up to rigorous questioning.

8.The cosmic connection

 

The Cosmic Connection: An Extraterrestrial Perspective is a book by Carl Sagan, produced by Jerome Agel. It was originally published in 1973.

The book covers several topics, and focusses mainly on the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence, the likelihood of the existence of more advanced civilizations, and their distribution in the local galaxy, and in the universe.

Sagan describes the hypothetical opinions of more advanced intelligences and their views of the Earth, as well as communication with mankind. He also discusses the popularity of UFO sightings and attempts mathematically to portray the probability of such events. Sagan also discusses his view of astrology as a pseudoscience.

9.Who moved my cheese?

The text describes change in one’s work and life, and four typical reactions to said change by two mice and two “littlepeople”, during their hunt for cheese. A New York Times business bestseller upon release, Who Moved My Cheese? remained on the list for almost five years and spent over 200 weeks on Publishers Weekly‘s hardcover nonfiction list. It has sold more than 26 million copies worldwide in 37 languages and remains to be one of the best-selling business books

10.How to win friends and influence people

In my personal opinion , this book by Dale Carnegie is what humanity needs right now. If you are in high school or college , you are moments away from diving into the real world , and this book will be a part of your parachute.

  1. I do a lot of research online for business book recommendations and How to Win Friends & Influence People as well as Who Moved My Cheese are two that are always reappearing 🙂 This was a nice mix of genres on your list, Thank you! I want to recommend a book I recently read called “Conversations That Sell” by Nancy Bleeke, the president and founder of a successful sales training and HR firm. http://www.conversationsthatsell.com/ This book lays out an effective road map to follow in today’s go go world of sales. Highlighting things such as recognizing different types of buyers, tailoring your conversation on a per buyer basis, proper preparation for the sale, identifying the buyers needs and keeping the conversations focused on where the buyer wants them to be. I learned a lot. It’s a really fantastic book for any business owner or anyone in sales or marketing. I think it’s going to be one of those business books we end up hearing about time and time again. It promotes the “human aspect” of sales in this highly digital world. Hope you will give it a read!
