Books I’ve read in the past couple of months

I haven’t had time to blog at all in the past couple of months, as I’ve been too busy sleeping, partying and sipping Pina Coladas in Santorini, of course.

However, I’ve been doing a lot of reading. From classic novels to philosophy to business books. And to soften some of this guilt I have for almost abandoning this blog, I decided to share some of the best ones with you. You’ve probably read most of them, but if you haven’t I strongly recommend that you do.

The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde – I think it’s the second or third time I read it, but Lord Henry remains one of my favorite characters of all times

How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie – a book that has taught me how to smile. Smile properly.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Milan Kundera –  it made me miss Prague, a city that reminds me a lot of Bucharest, my home town.

Crush it, Gary Vaynerchuk – the books brings nothing new to the party, but I completely loved the chapter about customer service: CARE

The One Minute Manager series by Ken Blanchard – a must read by any manager or CEO out there interested to improve his / her leadership skills.
