9 Non-Fiction books to read if you still didn't.

I thought it would be great to share the list of the last books I’ve read that will help you better understand other people and yourself, achieve new heights and always be confident in your abilities. So let's go!

Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

After reading the book, you understand how much we are used to relying on decision-making on anything, but not on our intuition. The author suggests to take intuition more seriously, to trust it, because he is convinced that our mind already “knows” all the answers, and there is no need to think for a long time.

Measure What Matters: How Google, Bono, and the Gates Foundation Rock the World with OKRs

The methodology is useful, but can be described in one page.

Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World

In this book, there is practically no “water” and every chapter and paragraph leads to the fact that the reader understands how to improve his own life significantly. It will help structure your thoughts and substantiate your inner experiences regarding your approach to work and personal accomplishments. The author very clearly communicates his ideas by accompanying them with examples of famous people.

In this book, you'll find a fresh view on a problem — efficient and useful book.

It's nice to read a book where everything is laid out in points. Good work by Allan Dib, in which you can learn a lot on development of your business, but also self-development will not interfere. The best book about marketing in this list.

Principles: Life and Work

It is always interesting and useful to know life stories of people who have achieved incredible success. Moreover, people have reached a higher level in the field of finance. There is always something to learn.

Thinking, Fast and Slow

Excellent book. Pretty difficult to read, but with a lot of benefit in it. I recommend it if you are familiar with psychology even at the minimum level. Reading and relaxing is not going to work in this case, but the knowledge is worth it. Thanks to the author!

Alibaba: The House That Jack Ma Built

A book gives insight into the development of business in China.
Few personal facts. Many dry facts (dates, numbers) from Wikipedia. You expect more information about characters from a similar book than articles of magazines collected in one place.

Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams

51dUdCh2ZdL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

The book will help to change the attitude to sleep and has a lot of interesting scientific information, which is easy to read and understand. Matthew Walker professionally explains why you need to get enough sleep.
