My Books Recommendations
In my books recommendations section, I have listed books that I love. As I have mentioned in my post on finding flow , books are my close friends , I consider them my light house, my guiding lights. Furthermore, about why I am sharing these books here . I felt since these books have helped me in various ways, I hope readers will also get the benefits from them. The books are from variety of categories from spirituality to leadership in business .

|Drive the surprising truth about what motivates us||Daniel H. Pink||Its a good study of human motivation.|
|Joy : The Happiness That Comes from Within||Osho||This book changed my perspective when I was struggling with pain after first discovery of Autism in my son. Osho dissects the ideas like pain and pleasure , dualities of life, root of pain. I recommend this if you want a new perspective of life overall.|
I may also expand on the ideas shared in these books either in a separate post or in the core idea column, basically how they impacted my life in a positive way, how they changed my perspective of life. Most of the books became link to the other books, when authors quoted about certain points from other books. So I kept moving from one book to another. This lead to a huge library. However, major portion of this library is digital now, primarily in audible. Over the period of time , I felt it was easy to listen a book then read it, in busy schedule of life. Please consider this as a live page as I will keep updating this list . To start with here are few of them in following table.
