My Book list for 2016

This is my ‘To-Read’ list for the year 2016. I am making it a goal to read these books before the year ends. These are books that have been highly recommended and are praised as ‘must read’ for any aspiring entrepreneur. Most of these have been suggested by successful podcasters like Pat Flynn and Ryan Moran.

This list is in no particular order. After I read the book I will write my thoughts on it here. For now, you can check out what others are saying on Amazon and see which ones you want to add to your own reading list.

Without further delay, here is the list of books and please let me know your thoughts if you have read any of these and which books you would recommend I add to my reading list.

The excuse for my C average in Calculus, which then turned into a W

Never skip a semester on math. I learn this the hard way. I was playing ‘catch up’ on my first Calculus class this Fall 2010 semester. I had taken Pre-Cal the Fall of 2009 and decided to take a break from math after that mind trip. Didn’t realized Calculus was an even bigger journey. Please dont try this stunt and continue your math series if you are planning on doing anything serious with Engineering. Another tip: learn your TI-89 very well. If your instructor lets you use it, it can be an advantage. I realized that if I knew some of the functions I know now, I could have done much better on my first two tests. Another thing I found out a little too late was the existence of Wolframalpha, man is this site powerfull. So take note, this might help you survive first year Calculus.
