2 Books Worth Reading

Recently I purchased two books:
  1. Notes to Myself: My Struggle to Become a Person by Hugh Prather
  2. The Other Side of Me by Sidney Sheldon 
Both the books are worth reading. Will write a detailed review about both these books later.


Notes to Myself is a book that you'll read and read and re-read it. The book gives us an insight into the sweet, small moments of our lives that we tend to neglect.

In today's world, we overlook small things. We are worried about our future and tend to forget today's happy moments.

As the author says -

"I don't need a reason to be happy. I don't have to consult the future to know how happy I feel now."
The writing style of author is soothing and comes from heart.

The Other Side of Me starts with the story of how Sidney Sheldon, as a young guy wanted to end his life by consuming sleeping pills with whiskey and how his father finds it and advises him to reconsider his decision.

He says -
Life is like a novel, you don't have any idea what will happen next until you turn the page.
And then young Sidney decides to live and we got the world's best story teller. Read on to find out how his life turns out to be.

    34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

     Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving. And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world. How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them? A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting. Here are a few points that I found worth sharing: 1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured. 2. Engineering isn’t about perfect solu

    We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

    I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?" . Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought. I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great. A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book: We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook
