Victor Hugo once said, “One can resist
the invasion of an army but one cannot
resist the invasion of ideas.”
I am a lover of ideas and I believe that to have new and interesting ideas that make you see the world differently, you have to learn how to acquire those of others, first.
Why? Because every single new and creative thing you see is just a mashup of ideas that came before.
That’s why I have decided to prepare a special place where you can check out some of my best reads.
Below are my top 5 books that played a crucial role in my personal growth so far. Enjoy.
