Reading List

    1. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg - Great book, highlighy recommend the audiobook

    2. Start With Why by Simon Sinek - did not finish. Too repetitive

    3. Fresh off the Boat: A Memoir by Eddie Huang - hilarious. Easily one of my favorite books of 2017

    4. What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey - It's Oprah. You gotta love it.

    5. Eat Move Sleep by Tom Rath - some interesting advice here; tbh, I don't remember a lot of it.

    6. The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck by Sarah Knight - I remember nodding along with some of the stuff in this book. And also rolling my eyes at the author just as much.

    7. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson - I read #6 because I was waiting for this one to come in. Totally worth the read. Will probably re-read this and takes notes the next time around.

    8. Good to Great by Jim Collins - Someone put a hold on this one before I could finish it. The problem with books like this is they get outdated very quickly. A lot of the "great" companies mentioned in this book are now long gone, so it's hard to say what truly makes a "great" company. Because of this, I'm not super motivated to re-read or finish this one.

    9. I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron - I read this after watching "Good Girls Revolt." There is an air of sadness with this one...you can hear it in her voice via the audiobook. That's the only thing I really remember about this one.

    10. You Are Badass by Jen Sincero - I've seen this book on so many "must read books for feminists/20-somethings/etc" and I don't know why. Time is better spent on #3, #4 & #7.

    11. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho - this one is all about mind-set. Don't read too into it. Take it as a "Disney"/"Alladin"/"Little Prince" sort of a journey. It's a simple, cute story. If you read too much into it, you will not like this book. You have been warned.

    12. Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell - this was a good one. Makes you wonder if you are one of the 'special ones.'

    13. Made to Stick by Dan & Chip Heath - this one ran onto the same problem as #2 & #8. It's a bit too repetitive, and some of the examples are outdated. Sticky Ideas are: 1. Simple 2. Concrete 3. Unexpected 4. Emotional 5. Tell a Story 6. Credible

    14. Revolution for Dummies: Laughing through the Arab Spring by Bassem Youssef - ok. remember #10? This one is an excellent and probably more "Funducational" one. Learn about the before-during-and-after-the-Arab-Spring through the eyes of a heart surgeon turn "Jon Stewart of the Arab World," Bassem Youssef
