Thanks to all who responded to my Bloggers’ Big Read post. I was happy to see books that I have also enjoyed in respondents’ comments.  And that’s how I discovered Mike Ramm‘s book shelf.  Below a quick overview of the authors with the highest frequency of occurrence (so far – as of 31 Mar’09). Those who are still willing to share are most welcome to do so here.

Questions Are The Answers

March 31, 2009

question_markI keep a few books on body language and communication by Allan & Barbara Pease at hand. Nicely visualised, any time I need a quick reference, there it is. A few days ago I came across ‘Questions Are The Answers’. The good news is that networking is a learnable skill. Got it? Image: Stockxpert

On Sneezers

March 29, 2009

Insightful reading presented in an easy-to-grasp way. Ignore your critics (‘… misguided losers …’), says Seth Godin but also ignore your fans (‘…your fans don’t want you to change…’).

Bloggers’ Big Read

March 29, 2009

I liked Eneya ‘s idea (in Bulgarian) therefore I join the Bloggers’ Big Read – 10 top favourite books. Each one below has somehow transformed my perceptions & views. The order in which they are listed is top of mind:

√ Truman Capote’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
√ Gore Vidal’s “Palimpsest”
√ James Aldridge “One Last Glimpse”
√ Orhan Pamuk – “Istanbul”
√ Philip Roth – “Portnoy’s Complaint”
√ Gerald Durrel – “Marrying Off Mother”
√ Nassim Taleb – “Fooled by Randomness”
Yordan Yovkov– “Boryana”
√ Douglas Adams – “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”
√ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – “Le Petit Prince”

With this I’d like to invite Dimitar NikolovVal Nelson & Velqn Staikov to share their top 10 favourite if they wish. Everyone who wishes is also invited to share by leaving a comment.

How could you help?

1. Join and bring friends – part of the concert’s revenues will be donated in support to the cause;

2. Spread the word – the more people are aware of the problem, the more help for the children.

3. Buy a T-shirt – during the concert you may buy a T-shirt hand-painted by children from Uganda. All proceeds from this sale be donated to improving education in the camps.
