This Is How I Fight My Battles

It is the same thing everyday, the same shit that I have to deal with every single day. And yet, I do not get bored of fighting it. My mind and body sparred with it for a couple of years now, but nothing was more enjoyable than this, nothing was more gratifying than having toContinue reading “This Is How I Fight My Battles”

Becoming Steve Jobs by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli (Book Review)

Looking into Steve Job’s life from a friend/journalist’s perspective, this book depicts the flaws and the genius behind one of the greatest inspirer of the modern world.

Humans are slowly devoured by the exponential growth of biotech and infotech. When we are still struggling to get a pass in our old, archaic education system, bigContinue reading “21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari (Book Review)”
