Do you read one book at a time or do you, like me, read several simultaneously? I finished Juggi Bhasin’s “The Terrorist” last week. It was an excellent read. Since I love thrillers and write them myself, I found it gripping. It was full of gory detail and was gruesome but it held the reader right through, which is what a good book ought to do. Congratulations, Juggi. It was a wonderful to read “The Terrorist.”
I am now reading Nelson DeMille’s “Nightfall”, the story of a mysterious aeroplane crash. If you have read the book, please don’t tell me the story. I am ploughing through the 600 + pages and have just got to page 250, so there’s a lot of good stuff I still need to cover! It’s a huge book but I like DeMille’s style. I find the dialogues in particular very engaging. John Corey, the main character is cynical, pugnacious and very likeable.
At the other end of the spectrum, I am reading, “Career Intelligence: The 12 New Rules for Work and Life Success” by Dr. Barbara Moses. This is a very informative book on how careers have changed over time. She speaks at length of the new career and how people need to re-invent themselves to cope in a fast-changing world of work. I think anyone who is in business today must read this book. It is written in a simple and easy to understand style. I believe Dr. Moses has very valuable advice on how to get ahead in a world which is new to most of us.
