Books have a special place, and this year I’ve had enjoyed reading compilations by Tim Ferris, all-time favorite John C. Maxell, and some others. There is nothing like settling in for a good book, to take the mind away on a short retreat. Better still, if they inspire greatly in achieving ambitions. Here are some not-to-be-missed releases this year.
