Unable to recall more books.

My own personnel repsonse:

1) Yoga the science of living - By Osho.
Abstraction level of mentioned thoughts are high. Difficult to understand without giving additional thoughts to book. When understood, Aha! kind of experience comes. Thoughts presented in books hits a root of problems.

2) 8th habit -By Stephen R. covey.
Not better than 7 habits. Book is not as generic as 7 habits. 7 Habits covers personnel, family, social and business related aspects. While this book covers more of a professional aspects.

3) One day -By Ardashir Vakil.
Not recommended to read. A book is about a day which is birthday of couple's one and only son. It describes events that takes place in life before, on and after birthday of their son. Book is not written in a way to keep your interest alive. I felt bored after reading 40% of a book.

4) 7 Habits of highly effective people -By Stephen R. covey.
An excellent book. This book has literally made a significant change in my life. MUST READ. Currently I am reading this book 2nd time.

5) Like the flowing river -By Paulo Coelho.
Good to read when you feels that you will not be able to read book which describes things in continuation.

6) Living the 7 habit -By Stephen R. covey.
Good to read. Book is about how people had implemented 7 Habits in their personnel, professsional life. This book gives you a courage. It will not allow you to feel alone. You will come to know about people's problems and how they have resolved it with implementation of 7 habit.

7) Looking for the BigB - Jessica Hines.
Book is about a lady from London who had made his mind to write a book about super star Amitabh Bachchan. It describes BibB's character. I found Language used tough and probably that is why it not interesting book. I had bought this book because I wanted to read a biography of at least one of my heroes. (Some of my heroes are Sachin Tendlker, A.R. Rahman, Shanker Ehsaan Loy)

8) Wings of fire -By Arun Tiwari.
No need to say that book is autobiography of APJ Kalam. I have still not read it fully. Book seems somewhat boring because of used technical terminology. Otherwise book is good.

9) Joker in the pack -By Shrma & Pahaljani.
Excellent.
Book is about author's journey from school-Engineering study-IIMB study-job. Must read for alll Chetan Bhagat's fans.

10) Boy and going solo -By Roald Dahl.
Very much boring book. I was not able to read even 2-3 pages of this books. My 250 Bugs got wasted.

11) Teach yourself Unix -By Kevin Reichard & Eric E. Johnson.
Some of the commands mentioned are very useful.
For example, to fire a command at perticular time you can use 'at' command.

12) Who moved my cheese -By Dr. Spencer johnson.
Book describes a root cause of our daily peoblem in a story. Good thing about book is, it very very short and easily available at roadside.

13) Paulo Coelho confession of a pilgrim - By Juan Arias.
Not yet opened. Just bought it 3-4days back. I know one thing, book is autobiography of Paulo Coelho. Planning to read it after finishing 'Yoga science of living' book.

14) તમારા મન ની શકિતઓ - By Jitendra Adhia.
Not able to recall anything from this book. One thing I can say is, it is very very short. So for those who wants to re-start nurturing reading habit but is not able to do it because of the size of the books, go for this one first. Finish it and re-gain a confidence that you still can read and finish.

15) The famous five - By Enid Blyton.
Book is about 5 people. 3 boys and 2 girls. It describes about an adventures of these guys. Book can be put in 'Not bad' category. Good thing about book is the way all conversations are described are very much logical. For example, in one story these guys were solving one mystery. So step by step they thought what can be possible and what can not be. While discussing one guy will put forward his opinion and other guys will agree or disagree with him logically and agreeably. Book is devided in three story. First is, 'Mystery Moor'. Second is, 'five has a lots of fun', And third I am not able to recall.
