Every year, I use the second half of December to reflect upon the content that moved me the most in the past year.
Here is my list for 2019
The top 10 books I read in 2019
One of the most powerful books I have read on negotiation. Have used a lot of the tactics in real life, even beyond negotiation circumstances, and its helped tremendously.
I first heard of Rory Sutherland on a podcast. Loved his idealogy. Started following him on twitter and realized his view of the world is so dramatically different from mine. Which meant, I had to read his book. And I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Such a wonderful book about being wrong and everything around it.
From one of my favorite writers online, James Clear. A powerful book. Also my most recommended book for this year.
This was long time due and was one of the most recommended books from my readers. Truly enjoyed it. Not necessarily the idealogy I would follow in life, but it is something that is hard to ignore.
Possibly the best step-by-step guide on how to think of growth in a startup. Learnt a lot from it.
MAN! What a story. What a thriller. Couldn’t believe any of it even as I read it, knowing it to be true. Great pick if you want the joy of a fiction, in a non-fiction book.
Enjoyed this quite a lot. Very different take and made a lot of sense when I read it.
Perhaps apt for today’s time and world. Cleared my concepts around democracy and why do I do see what I see, time and again.
Oh man! What a joy and rush to read this one. Hard to imagine the near-death experiences Netflix went through and how it just didn’t give up. To today when it virtually rules our free time.
AWESOME book! Nothing more to say. Pick this up!
The top 10 videos I watched in 2019
My video consumption this year plummeted. I figured I am losing hearing in my ears due to excessive earphone usage, so completely stopped using earphones. Hence, stopped videos too (on YT or others).
That said, some videos made a mark
