* “Buku” means “Book” in the Malay language.
Here are some of the books that I have enjoyed reading and have impacted my thinking (and my life).
I love to read and on average consume about 2-3 books a month. Every time I meet with people and friends I’m always talking about an idea I read about or recommending a book. Some of the most successful people in the world are voracious readers too. But since you are reading this your already know that. 😉
Reading is great and for sometime that’s all I did: just read stuff without really taking any action. So I hope that you get the same benefit from reading these books as I did, but please start taking some action once you read them!
I would have to say that this is the book that started it all for me. I was introduced to this book by a friend was quite prominent in the tech scene here in Malaysia. We were exchanging notes and he mentioned this book to me and the very next day I went out looking for it. This book changed many of the perceptions about life and made me realize that a lot of the constructs that we were made to believe are not really true. Reading this book also gave me the push to go to Vancouver and get my training to become a Certified Law of Attraction Facilitator.
This is the book that started my minimalism journey. I came to know of the author from a post on Tim Ferriss’s blog (I think). Leo Babauta himself has a simple, minimalist blog with no pictures, yet has more than a million readers. The writing is humble yet at the same time inspiring.
