Happy New Year TE! it's almost 2019 (where did 2018 go...)

2018 was a busy year for me, and I managed to read few non-IT books, this was by far my most favourite book:
Maximum Achievement Strategies and Skills that Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed by Tracy Brian

It was an overall excellent read, and dare I say, It's been a life changing book for me!

What's been your favourite book in 2018?

    Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins.
    The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don't let them put you in that position. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    • Nonfiction: Writing Without Bullshit by Josh Bernoff (really recommend this for anyone looking to improve their writing)
    • Fiction: Uprooted by Naomi Novik (wizards, witches and magic. Borderline YA fiction, but a fun read)

    I'm a very average writer @Meggo I'll take a look at that book.

    @Meggo is the writing book focused on business writing or just general writing? I need to work on my business writing skills. I'm learning little bit of business writing in the MBA but I there's no dedicated course to teach it!
