First name / Friend, it is Book Day again! We would like to finish the month of April with our Book Club newsletter! Here at Arwani Law Firm we always like to share our experiences with the books we have read and gather a list for our readers to see. We value each other's inputs and hope that you find this list to be useful and valuable to your everyday life. Our book recommendations are:
Ego Is The Enemy: This book is written by Stoic philosopher and author Ryan Holiday. In this book, Holiday teaches you that your own ego and how you view the world revolving you can be your worst enemy. He gives detailed examples on how some of the greatest men and women overcame their own ego to become overly productive in society. He also mentions that in order to work around your ego, you will need to focus in on becoming as grounded and as humble as you can. Realize that with every accomplishment comes the opportunity to share the success with others.
Homo Deus: This book is the second part of the 3 part series written by Yuval Noah Harari and it is also a New York Times Bestseller. In this book, Dr. Harari brings in his expertise and resources to further analyze the future of humanity. With his first book “Sapiens”, he attempts to give you a manual of humans' past. With Homo Deus, you get a glimpse at what the research is saying the future will look like. Of course, this is all used within the spectrum of today's information. He encompasses various sources to explain how, using present problems and technologies, we can expect the future to be shaped. He will always let you know that this is just with the information and advancements available to us right now.
Mentor: The CEO and The Kid: This book is a light-hearted anecdote that provides insight into a successful mentor/mentee relationship. An easy read, the story takes you from the reckless beginnings of a young man who ends up in jail for an unnecessary mistake. While in there, he meets a gentleman who spends his time helping those incarcerated find their ways back into society as productive members. Once he gets out of serving his time, he meets back up with the gentleman who turns out to be a successful CEO. From their, the story records the ups and downs of a well put together relationship between a mentor and his mentee. Amazing read!
