Annotation 2020-06-05 004431We could not neglect the books. Books are very special and unique to us. If someone recommends me a book, I never see, whether will it is relevant to me or not. I will start reading. Such a curious reader I am. If books were written by legends or experts, there is no question you must buy and read. Whenever I saw a people, foremost, I see their books and their speeches too. That is what makes me inspired every time.

Over the last two days, we had seen Drucker’s rules for ambitious and leadership. This post will deal with books. Drucker has written 39 books. They were mostly about management, economy, polity and society, but there were two novels among them. His books have been translated into more than thirty-six languages. Two are novels, one an autobiography. He is the co-author of a book on Japanese painting and made eight series of educational films on management topics. He also penned a regular column in the Wall Street Journal for 10 years and contributed frequently to the Harvard Business Review, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Economist.

Drucker’s book was highly recommendable to read. Not a matter, who we are/what we do. I personally see his books pays more attention to management, entrepreneurship, technology, and economics and so on. We all are knowingly/unknowingly applying these fields in our dynamic life. Let’s pick one by one and read.

Let’s apply our knowledge.

I’m quite happy to share.



With respect.
