Book Reading


Quote of the day: 
Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
-Frank Zappa


Hello folks.
Hope the month has been good to you so far -in many ways than one.

I have been doing a lot more reflection lately, and a lot more reading...which is good.

At the moment I am reading a biography written by Walter Isaacson about Steve Jobs.

A brief from the book:
Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years--as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues--Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

My take so far: 
Already half way through the book, and I must say it is a greatly written book filled with so many historical milestones, emotions -failure, pain, success, intensity, perfection, conflict...that you can't help but keep turning the pages to see what happens next-tuning out the world in the process.

All in all, a very interesting and engaging read so far.

What books are you reading?
Have a productive week ahead!

Peace & Love always.
