My Reading List

Its been a good productive month for me in terms of my personal reading. I was a little bit behind in my reading list last month and I had to do something about my time management. I fixed up a time everyday for reading now and I guess I am improving in my reading habit.  

Books I have read recently

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: Thanks to my colleague Srinivasan G for giving me the hard copy of this book.

The Four Obsessions of an extra ordinary executive: Thanks to Venkat H for the book. After reading "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team", we are obsessed with the author’s writings.

Excellent Books. A Must read for people who are into managing people/teams.  

Games Indians Play: Why We Are the Way We Are:

http://www.amazon.com/Games-Indians-Play-Why-Are/dp/0670999407

Thanks to Sendhil for suggesting and lending this book. Excellent Book and it analyzed the games we (Indians) play in our day to day life. After reading this, I have started following couple of things as whenever I try to bye-pass  some thing, immediately his comments is coming into my mind. A Must Read for every Indian.

 

Goal II – It’s not Luck:
http://www.amazon.com/Its-Not-Luck-Eliyahu-Goldratt/dp/0884271153/ref=pd_sim_b_1/104-7407102-5101525

When I saw an Indian edition of this book, I purchased it immediately (I have the US Edition of the Part I). Though GOAL II is not as interesting as GOAL I, it talked about the importance of thought process and how ALEX ROGO was able to get thru the critical situation by using it effectively. Good Read.
