Another vote from me for:

  • Quiet - Susan Cain (Can't watch her TED talk without filling up)
  • Black Box Thinking - Matthew Syed
  • and The One Thing - Gary Keller

also enjoyed:

  • How To Own The World - Andrew Craig
  • Essentialism - Greg McKeown
  • Flow -  Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
  • Principles - Ray Dalio - I read it twice but my husband found it unreadable, so not for everyone

About to read Factfulness, also recommended by DerekT

I was little bored over the weekend so updated my blog to include the reading list above, with some additional books added since August last year. 

Broken down by entrepreneur and leadership, mindset and property categories and includes a brief one-liner of what the gist of the book was (based on my comprehension).

Hope it helps if you're after some reading material during the lockdown! I need to add some of those recommended above to the shopping cart as well...

my wife and I have been searching for. The type of knowledge here on the forum is superb and needed and is going to help My wife and her kids in our studies several times a week. It is obvious everyone here gained a large amount of expertise concerning the stuff I am interested in and this page and other categories and types of info definitely show it. I am not on the web very much although when I have some time I am usually avidly hunting for this type of information or things similarly concerning it. If anyone gets a chance, check out at my site.

If you are a fan of detective stories then I highly recommend to have a look at Ben Elton's Time and Time Again. A true masterpiece :) As a rule this book can be found in fb2 but if you are a Kindle owner you will surely need this converter.
