2017 reading challenge

I make a list of selected books I want to read since 2015 and try to stick with it. It is good for me to boost my reading volume and focus on the selected books among ton of books. I handpicked books of my favorite genres: humor, tech, non-fiction and some books to improve my skills and knowledge (InfoSec, Business Development & IT in general). So far, I selected 17 books to read within 2017. The E-Shelf is created at Goodreads if you want to check the details of any particular book.


This is the condense and worthy book for non-business people to learn about business concepts and ideas that offers from standard MBA program.
