Hope you are well. Today’s recommendations are two easy to read non-fiction books you can use if you want to finish books quickly and get into the flow of reading.
Tata vs Mistry: The Inside Story by Deepali Gupta
The Tata story is at the heart of most Indian businessman looking to cement their legacy. While money buys a lot of things, it never buys peace between two battling stalwarts, especially when one treads on the other’s feet, even if they are relatives. This book traces the battle between Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mistry for control of Tata Sons. Deepali keeps it interesting, fast-paced, and comprehensive.
We grow up thinking that life is a zero sum game and that for us to win, some one must lose. Counter-arguments are based on fairness and being nice and do not seem to convince us to give more than we take, in life, in relationships, in public. However, Adam makes the case for giving from a results standpoint, explains how giving helps us, and how to give and yet not be steamrolled.
Looking forward to writing to you again.
