Read Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons in Life by Richard Branson. Its (self) classification as a self help book gave me enough doubts. But Atanu's recommendation and the "Quick Read" tag in amazon helped me overcome that skepticism. Thanks to that. It is a good read. Even with the "self help" tag. But if you expect a n-point, bulleted, step by step recipe for a success then this may not be it. Just take it as some advice from an experienced person. The words of someone who did these things (and successful) is always going to be more inspiring than those of inspirational writers' capitalized advice. It worked for him. Some may work for you. Besides that the book itself was worth the time and the price.

I read the Atanu's elaborated blog on this. Sounds interesting.

To me, self help books are really very useful to make a good conversation. (we can give our 50 cents cogently and fluently quoting these books).

Alwa gave me Branson's biography book. He said that it was not that great. Have you ever read that?

forgot that you are a manager :-)

I rarely reach the last chapter of such books. To remember them and quote them is a tough ask.

I guess, this is a concise version of that book.
