I managed to get through 3 books this month! Another thanks to my long commute time for giving me the opportunity to read. Here are the books I got through in February.
Lean Analytics by Alistair Croll and Benjamin Yoskovitz – Part of the lean series, Lean Analytics is a must read for entrepreneurs, digital marketers & growth hackers, data analysts etc. Lean Analytics goes through all the technical jargon you’ll come across in the analytics world and what numbers are important depending on your business models (e-commerce, saas, mobile app, media site, UGC & two sided marketplace), with a lot of case studies to refer to.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain – If you’re an introvert (which I am – in a way), and you feel like the the world thinks of extroverts as the more superior type, then this book will make you feel good. It’s a powerful book with lot’s of case studies and citing from psychologists. They’ll always be people that prefers solitude over a party, and that’s alright. (Yep, I prefer to get up early on my weekend to hike alone than party/club late at night!)
Zero to One by Peter Thiel – Peter Thiel is someone I look up to, like Elon Musk, they both belong to the PayPal Mafia, both of whom have been quite controversial lately, but that doesn’t stop them from being brilliant. Zero to one is an easy to read book on startups, where Thiel provide his philosophies and strategies on startups and how to build the future. Also, there’s some pretty nice graphics of well known people in the book, ha.
