5 books to read for context on the coronavirus outbreak. By World Economic Forum.

It’s extremely important to read. But more often depends on the time and the situation you should learn to flex yourself to read what is required at the time period. I started a target by reading a bare minimum of 2 books a month. One would be my favourite book and the other one would be, readers commonly heard this word “must-read”. You should not compromise.

Here, I’m not contracting about reading and the readers preferences. But let me be precise even more. If we are in the economic crisis, we must start learning finance/economics books. Along with your favourite books. We just need to know what is going on around the globe and we need to start learning on the other side too.

I started learning and observing more on the health related news. I knew that, it is my out-of-syllabus. So far my understanding was chaotic to read about the virus even more simultaneously curious to about how this virus causing the people globally and affects the economy too.

Here is where I learn to start. There are enormous books to read during pandemic . Again our individual choices matters. I agree. This is one of the five books to read during pandemic. To know about 5 books and what all the books says. I sincerely encourage you all to visit the source link further.

I personally chosen second book across five books which is VIRUSES A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION. BY DOROTHY CRAWFORD. So, I’m genuinely admitting I need to know about the virus.

Let’s have a look and let’s know about the pandemic and the virus.

Valuable books: What am I reading right now?

It’s been a long time to post it. It took me a time to finish it off. Every time, this content fascinates me. Reading a book and sharing with someone is such a special feeling. Books are always gifted. To me, there is no compromise to ignore a book. Over a year, I do started recommending and sharing books to my colleagues and my blog (avid) readers too. Most probably, I was rigorous because “every book is worthy”. Whenever, I got books in any social media, the next moment I will take a screenshot and share. That’s it, without any hesitation. And if anybody recommends a book, I note it down with my notepad. I usually carry too.

That’s okay to say, thank you almighty. I got attached with the books in my undergraduate college days. Those sincere crazy readings, I still remember. Even more, my readings at that point is the stepping stone of my career. I just did “keep reading and keep reading”.

Here are my lists contains three books. I started to finish within a month. But It’s a challenge. Let’s see.

1. Environmental Studies by N. Arumugam and V. Kumaresan. When I was in my first year of undergraduate days, there is paper called Environmental studies in my first semester. It’s almost been eight years. I still preserved it. Even after eight years, when I decided to start reading and writing about climate change. This book shows me the way to start from fundamentals.

2. The Elements of Style by William Strunk. I started reading it over the last just two days. The reason, I decided to read this book is to write properly. Very small book, but I started jotting, probably it takes 2 more days to finish it off. This is one of the book that shows the ways to write properly. I’m still not okay with my writing. This is the right moment to read. If you are yet to start or already started writing, you must read it and try to apply.  

3. A biographical book from the Indian perspective. Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru (Here, Pundit mean Teacher). The first Prime Minister of independent India from (1947-1964). It was an English book. Jawaharlal Nehru: Civilizing a Savage World by Nayantara Sahgal. But, I’m reading Tamil (It’s a language). நேரு உள்ளும் புறமும். In English, Nehru- Ullum Puramum by a Tamil author Jayanatarajan. The author translated into Tamil. Even more, I pay huge attention to read biographies and autobiographies from people (leaders) who left a legacy to the world.

If you people are interested to read this book. Go-Ahead. Please comment, what you people are reading right now.

Valuable books: Books to read about Climate change.

Books shows you the way to read something new/something more.

After going through several articles, news and inspirational personalities to know about climate change. It started taking lot of time to pick up a book to read. As I said in my earlier blog posts, I decided to start with Naomi Klein’s book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs The Climate.

https://naomiklein.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/TCE-cover-hp-gallery.jpg

Because this is the first one I saw. Also, I would to like to continue to read other books with regard to climate change from the same author. Even more, I decided to pick few more to read. I just started researching, luckily, I got 21 books to read about climate change from The New York Times. Also, I just decided to pick the second book to read.

I personally encourage you all to read any of these 21 books or any other books too. This is also the right moment, we must know and spread the awareness about the climate change. I agree with you all, there are numerous problems still in outside. But this is the problem for entire planet, our “Mother earth”. Just a minute before, I arose few basic questions to my brother regarding climate, deforestation, humidity level of the planet and life span of the earth. He is very good at Chemistry and Geography. Even more, he is a well academician. The fact he delivered is, due to the emission of C0 which is one of the greenhouse gases, from vehicles and chemical industries affects ozone layer. This in turn raises the temperature of the earth and melting of glaciers which leads to rise of sea level. If you do think, our upcoming generations has to live. It is entirely our responsibility trying to save and earth.

We might have no idea, whether Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Robots gonna save/dominate our planet. From this moment, let’s start taking care our earth. It is all about individual initiative. We should be the volunteer.

If you would like to know the 21 books and other stuff. I sincerely encourage you all to visit source link further.

10 VALUABLE LESSONS: AS A MAN THINKETH. BY JAMES ALLEN.

Last night, this was my audio book. This is my long waited book. Quite honestly, this is my first audiobook. After a while, I started knowing the value of thoughts.

  10. If a man is calm, he understands himself.

7 PICS TELLS YOU HOW TO LEARN AI?

This is the critical way to share it in the pictures. But my point is, either pictures or through words. I must convey in a legible manner. I’m also one of the curious guys to learn AI also started analysing the impact about the AI too. Quite frankly, I must admit that I am in a beginner stage to learn AI. Although, quite seriously I should take a step to learn too. I cannot say there is no possibility of learning. I believe there are few ways in which I was doing right now to learn either you can learn from AI reports, articles from World Economic Forum and Stanford University’s AI Index report and even more our favourite reading books Harvard Business Review books and experts those who written and observing and learning from AI start-ups and you have a look at what every sector are doing with AI and what would be the impact. Finally, watching documentaries.

Usually, I do share in five pics. Eventually, it goes to seven. That’s okay. These seven are the most important one. I could not reduce it. There is no way of reducing it too.

My point is, every pic never tells you how to learn AI. Only my first will tells you that’s it. But the next upcoming pics will be quite different with use cases, landscapes, how it works, categories, Chatbot.

Please correct me, if I’m wrong. I have no overconfidence. I more often find ways to do more. That’s it. I felt lucky and deserved too to post this content. I’m still working more and more.

In this Fourth Industrial Revolution, these are the important fields we got an opportunity to learn. There is nothing wrong with learning. If you felt curious or you feel a catchy phrase that sounds like you need to know. Or whatever it is. That’s fine. Let’s learn and deliver (write).

Without any hesitation, I will assure you all. You can learn something from this post.

Valuable books: Five summer books by GatesNotes.com. The Blog of Bill Gates.

Quite frankly, it was too late to share. But that’s okay. I feel, today is the right day to share too. GatesNotes.com really inspires me over a year. Along with books, quite honestly two more topics, I deliberately started reading and thinking such as climate change and diseases related issues. Of course, you people notice my few of the book recommendations in my earlier blog posts from GatesNotes. I do seriously comprehend these books said by experts.

IMG_20200602_033629

When I start choosing those books to read, I feel frenzy and devouring. I knew it happens oftentimes to me personally. Even more, I could not prioritize too. Finally, I would like to start with two books. One is The Great Influenza by John M. Barry and Good Economics for Hard Times by Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo.

The first one The Great Influenza is most important at this moment. Right now, our entire globe is struggling and surviving in the Covid-19. Just one more statement from my side. I said and shared quite a lot from the past posts regarding Covid-19. “There is hope, things will definitely get back to normal”.

And the second book in Economics. Good Economics for Hard Times. My subject, as you all knew I shared Economics books from my past posts too. The authors are Nobel Laureates from Economics. I felt really curious and I have a sense of urgency too.

I sincerely encourage you all to read seriously. I agree with every book, that you are reading is extremely important. Maybe I don’t know, but I could realize. When it comes to these books shared and said by experts. Please approach these books with a bit of seriousness.

And there are other books worth reading. I would like to share it too.

Also please visit GatesNotes. Mr Gates talked about TV shows, movies and wild card: online bridge.

Alright, I supposed to read with my Kindle device. Thank you almighty.

Five books are:

summer-books_2020_article-hero_1200x564_01

The Choice, by Dr. Edith Eva Eger. This book is partly a memoir and partly a guide to processing trauma. Eger was only sixteen years old when she and her family got sent to Auschwitz. After surviving unbelievable horrors, she moved to the United States and became a therapist. Her unique background gives her amazing insight, and I think many people will find comfort right now from her suggestions on how to handle difficult situations.

Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell. This is the kind of novel you’ll think and talk about for a long time after you finish it. The plot is a bit hard to explain, because it involves six inter-related stories that take place centuries apart (including one I particularly loved about a young American doctor on a sailing ship in the South Pacific in the mid-1800s). But if you’re in the mood for a really compelling tale about the best and worst of humanity, I think you’ll find yourself as engrossed in it as I was.

The Ride of a Lifetime, by Bob Iger. This is one of the best business books I’ve read in several years. Iger does a terrific job explaining what it’s really like to be the CEO of a large company. Whether you’re looking for business insights or just an entertaining read, I think anyone would enjoy his stories about overseeing Disney during one of the most transformative times in its history.

The Great Influenza, by John M. Barry. We’re living through an unprecedented time right now. But if you’re looking for a historical comparison, the 1918 influenza pandemic is as close as you’re going to get. Barry will teach you almost everything you need to know about one of the deadliest outbreaks in human history. Even though 1918 was a very different time from today, The Great Influenza is a good reminder that we’re still dealing with many of the same challenges.

Good Economics for Hard Times, by Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo. Banerjee and Duflo won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences last year, and they’re two of the smartest economists working today. Fortunately for us, they’re also very good at making economics accessible to the average person. Their newest book takes on inequality and political divisions by focusing on policy debates that are at the forefront in wealthy countries like the United States.

Other books worth reading

The Headspace Guide to Meditation and Mindfulness, by Andy Puddicombe. For years, I was a skeptic about meditation. Now I do it as often as I can—three times a week, if time allows. Andy’s book and the app he created, Headspace, are what made me a convert. Andy, a former Buddhist monk, offers lots of helpful metaphors to explain potentially tricky concepts in meditation. At a time when we all could use a few minutes to de-stress and re-focus each day, this is a great place to start.

Moonwalking with Einstein, by Joshua Foer. If you’re looking to work on a new skill, you could do worse than learning to memorize things. Foer is a science writer who got interested in how memory works, and why some people seem to have an amazing ability to recall facts. He takes you inside the U.S. Memory Championship—yes, that’s a real thing—and introduces you to the techniques that, amazingly, allowed him to win the contest one year.

The Martian, by Andy Weir. You may remember the movie from a few years ago, when Matt Damon—playing a botanist who’s been stranded on Mars—sets aside his fear and says, “I’m going to science the s*** out of this.” We’re doing the same thing with the novel coronavirus.

A Gentleman in Moscow, by Amor Towles. The main character in this novel is living through a situation that now feels very relatable: He can’t leave the building he’s living in. But he’s not stuck there because of a disease; it’s 1922, and he’s a Russian count who’s serving a life sentence under house arrest in a hotel. I thought it was a fun, clever, and surprisingly upbeat story about making the best of your surroundings.

The Rosie Trilogy, by Graeme Simsion. All three of the Rosie novels made me laugh out loud. They’re about a genetics professor with Asperger’s Syndrome who (in the first book) goes looking for a wife and then (in the second and third books) starts a family. Ultimately the story is about getting inside the mind and heart of someone a lot of people see as odd, and discovering that he isn’t really that different from anybody else. Melinda got me started on these books, and I’m glad she did.

I don’t read a lot of comics or graphic novels, but I’ve really enjoyed the few that I have picked up. The best ones combine amazing storytelling with striking visuals. In her memoir The Best We Could Do, for example, Thi Bui gains a new appreciation for what her parents—who survived the Vietnam War—went through. It’s a deeply personal book that explores what it means to be a parent and a refugee.

On the lighter side is Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things that Happened, by Allie Brosh. You will rip through it in three hours, tops. But you’ll wish it went on longer, because it’s funny and smart as hell. I must have read Melinda a dozen hilarious passages out loud.

Finally, I love the way that former NASA engineer Randall Munroe turns offbeat science lessons into super-engaging comics. The two books of his that I’ve read and highly recommend are What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions, and XKCD Volume 0. I also have Randall’s latest book, How To: Absurd Scientific Advice for Common Real-World Problems, on my bookshelf and hope to read it soon. If you’ve read it, let me know what you think in the comments.
