I’ve always been a book worm and I love to read – whenever there’s an issue you can find me in the self help aisle:) So I thought I’d start sharing some of my best finds. This a list of 3 books that I read recently.
Tribe of Mentor by Tim Ferris.
Tim Ferris is a New York times best selling author entrepreneur and public speaker. He’s on the board of companies such as Facebook and Twitter amongst others. Tim has a long career behind himself and of course a huge network of highly successful people. He gathererd these peoples’ best advice and summarised it in the book. It’s what it says on the book, a Tribe of Mentors sharing their best life advice.
