"If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it."

- Margaret Fuller.

I have read so many biz books lately. It was one of those things that felt good and bad at the same time. It was therapeutic -there's something about being in bed with a hardcover book and a heap of chips until you fall asleep- but it was kind of toxic too, because you cannot stop.

I often wonder that I find myself reflecting on the topic of the book, wondering why we so often focus on the negative things at work, something that we-should-do, or all of the lack we feel and unfulfilled desired we have. Sometimes we fail to take into account how much we have and how far we've come. And often the company fail to thank the people (employee) who have come into their lives to make them better, or to make us better in some way, as a result of people's engagement with them.

I love the way biz book breaks down the subjects/areas, give us clear examples what it is talking about, and finally helps me think about business in a new and different way. Some books are also talking about ideas and concepts which are fresh and relevant today and how the work of almost everything has been transformed by new technologies.

I'm currently reading The Art of Communication by Thich Nhat Hanh after finished reading a dozen  other books. Not 100% biz book but I'm really liking it. It's a HUGE read but quick and easy. If you're into psychology, counselling, writing, and story-telling, you should read this book.
