God is My CEO by Larry Julian
It is a powerful book that has taught me how to connect quantitative decisions to people's emotions. Human beings can't be treated like 'numbers' in an organisation.

Nine Lives by William Dalrymple
Nine Lives is travel writing at its best, with a series of biographies that explore the rich religious heritage of India.

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without
Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell
Blink has made me believe that spontaneous decisions are often as good as-or even better than-the carefully planned ones

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
Self-generated pressure is far stronger than any external pressure to succeed in life. I can easily relate to this book.

Control Your Destiny or Someone Else Will by Noel M.
Tichy and Stratford Sherman
The book makes a major contribution to management practice. It has inculcated in me a spirit of unremitted devotion to things that are extremely important to grow in life.
