The books I liked best in Q3 2023

These four books are the books I enjoyed reading most during the third quarter of this year. I managed to read many other good books, and you can find them on my Goodreads profile.

It’s a toolkit for the modern entrepreneur, emphasizing the power of self-driven learning and the importance of practical knowledge.

Drawing from personal experiences and timeless wisdom, “How to Live” nudges you to question societal norms and carve your unique path.

The 5-second Rule

By Mel Robbins

Mel Robbins introduces a transformative concept that promises to revolutionize decision-making. By harnessing the power of five seconds, this book encourages readers to act on their instincts, overcome procrastination, and embrace opportunities. It’s a call to action, urging you to break free from self-imposed limitations and to seize the moment with courage and conviction.

For a change, I would like to add a fiction book to the mix since reading it was like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s day (incredibly pleasurable)
