Hello, Hope you are doing good. I am working as Senior Software Designer in USA from many years for a top IT firm. I love to read books especially on self development and business. One of the best lessons I learnt in life is Leaders are open to Learn first before they expect to Earn. They love to learn from people’s experiences, trends, media and most importantly books.
Books are the most compressed versions of someone’s entire life experiences. You do not need to make the same mistakes the author had done and can save years of life to achieve great success in personal or business life.
