There are few things in this world that feeds your soul. For me, books are one of them. Books are real treasure, hiding thousands of secrets of universe in it. I tried to collect top seven must read books of all times as per my taste and understanding.
1. IGNORE EVERYBODY
This book is about arts and creativity in which author tells that no one knows the better way to convey your unique idea, no matter how sharp they may seem. Finding your inner voice and sharing that voice with the world is what matters. Artist has to learn this art of finding a way for living and sharing their work with world without ruining it. And this book is the best opportunity for it.
2. SAPIENS: A BRIEF HISTORY OF HUMANKIND
It is the one of the finest book on history by Yuval Noah Harari. According to him three major revolutions has shaped Human history: the Cognitive Revolution 70,000 years ago, the Agricultural Revolution 10,000 years ago, and the Scientific Revolution (500 years ago). These have empowered humans to do something different from other forms of life, which is to create and connect around ideas that do not exist physically like religion and politics. Myths and traditions have enabled humans to take over the globe and have put humankind on the edge of conquering the forces of natural selection.
3.HOW TO WIN FRIENDS & INFLUENCE PEOPLE
This is one of the best business books for motivating businessmen for making more money. It’s really about making a positive change in business world, where everyone can mutually benefit each other. This book offers many reminders as it names tell “win friends and influence people” but mostly about how to maintain your relationships during the digital era. It comes down to the one basic rule “treat others the way you want to be treated”.

Paul chooses pages in this book to tell his story to world over everything, also share his ideas on how to celebrate life, approach death with poise and meaning of life.
5.THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK
We all need self-help to improve ourselves. This is the one of the best books on self-help by Mark Manson. This book tells about finding something important, meaningful and worth living for in your life is the most fertile use of your money, energy and time. This is fact because every life has problems associated with it and finding a way to deal with problems with good attitude is an art. Thus, we can say that the key to living a good life is not giving a damn about anything, but rather, giving a fuck only about the things that matters in your life.
Have a break from exhausted routines and give it a read to refresh your soul.
6.MANUAL FOR LIVING
This is the one of the leading books in world of Philosophy by Epictetus. According to him, not everything is in our control and do not run for the things that are not in your power. It is our way of thinking about things that determines how we feel about a particular affair, not the affair itself. Think carefully about how you spend your life because you get only one chance for this life, people often spend their lives chasing for wrong things that are neither as important nor as needed as they seem.
7.STUMBLING ON HAPPINESS
Looking for something good on psychology? A book you must read once by Dan Gilbert. What make humans different from every other animal are our predictions about the future. But overthinking fall us victim to inappropriate predictions Because of these mental bugs it is remarkably difficult to predict what will make us feel happy.
I have personally found Amazon Kindle one of the best application for reading. Highly recommended with the first free month trial.
