Permanent Record

by Edward Snowden

I don't think I need to mention who Edward Snowden is. In this book he reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build a tracking system and what motivated him to try to bring it down.

Highly recommended book. I still meet people who believe they don't care about privacy because they don't have anything to hide. I try to convince, most of the time failing at it. But this is one book, which may change their mind.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

by Mark Manson

I don't know how many times I have seen the cover of this book during travel. I tried to ignore this book just because of that. But decided to try this month. Now I understand why this is popular.

Unlike most other self help books, this book advises you to get to know your limitations and accept them. Once you embrace your  fears, faults, and uncertainties, once you stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, you can begin to move forward by courage, perseverance, and curiosity.
