by Yuval Noah Harari
Planet Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens?
One of the readers says, “If you compare 1 book with 100 other books then that one book must be Sapiens. This single book covers so many topics and will shake your believes in all those topics.”
by Benjamin Graham, Jason Zweig, Warren E. Buffett
The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham’s philosophy of “value investing”—which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies—has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.
A review says, “If you think you are an investor and have not read this yet, you have missed plethora of investing wisdom.”
by George Orwell
1984 is considered a work of political prophecy that continues to grow more haunting as it becomes more real with every passing day. It was published seventy years ago. English political novelist George Orwell wrote this dystopian tale as a warning against totalitarianism that told us what the world would be without the freedom to think. It has now become one of the most significant novels of the 20th century.
One of the readers reacts, “What a read…. evergreen & even more so in current times! Go for it, you will read non-stop end to end”
by Viktor E Frankl
A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn’t) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest – and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances.
An Amazon review says, “Classical example of how we can learn and grow through suffering. Logotheraphy sounds fantastic. I would recommend this book for people who are seeking the meaning for life”
by Francis Scott Fitzgerald
While “The Great Gatsby” is a highly specific portrait of American society during the Roaring Twenties, its story is also one that has been told hundreds of times, and is perhaps as old as America itself: a man claws his way from rags to riches, only to find that his wealth cannot afford him the privileges enjoyed by those born into the upper class…
A reader writes, “I have read this book twice, and enjoyed it, I may read it again, highly recommend.”
by Harper Lee

by Stephen Hawking
It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. To this day A Brief History of Time remains a staple of the scientific canon, and its succinct and clear language continues to introduce millions to the universe and its wonders.
This is how a reader wrote, “This book is really a proof that why was Stephen Hawking One of the best Physicist after Albert Einstien … I mean it explains the high level concepts in a way that anyone can easily understand ..”
by Ernest Hemingway

A reader praises, “Timeless classic…. Gives a wonderful picture of a fisherman at sea…”
by Arundhati Roy
Still, to say that it all began when Sophie Mol came to Ayemenem is only one way of looking at it . . . It could be argued that it actually began thousands of years ago. Long before the Marxists came. Before the British took Malabar, before the Dutch Ascendancy, before Vasco da Gama arrived, before the Zamorin’s conquest of Calicut.
One of the satisfied readers writes, “This book keeps makes you want to read it. Every chapter is beautifully written. A story that will touch your heart for sure.”
