2. Steve Jobs: The man who thought differently
What can you say about a man who revolutionized the world with his innovative products and inspired us with messages like: “I don’t care about being the richest man in the graveyard… Going to bed at night and saying that we doing something wonderful… that’s important to me.” But this book by Karen Blumenthal is a nice attempt to learn more about his life. The book is a glimpse into Job’s life, which was unpredictable from the start. How this college dropout fathered Apple in a garage at the age of just twenty, maintained an innovative outlook on life, kept his quest for perfection alive to his last breath are the themes this book explores. A journey worth reading by a genius and visionary par excellence.
Reporters Jatin Gandhi and Veenu Sandhu penned what they call a celebrity biography – “Rahul.” Ask any ordinary Indian and what he will tell you about Rahul Gandhi would be solely from the perspective of his political involvement and his attempts to connect with the common man. What these authors brought out in their book is totally different from his public persona. Behind his seemingly idealistic image hides a real man who has his own influences from life, people from whom he prefers to take advice on various political matters. The journalists have also tried to bring about the way in which he will conduct his future ventures.
4. Mughal Empire: The Tainted Throne
Famous figures from history have always fascinated mankind. This book by Alex Rutherford is the fourth in the series of historical biography books on the Mughal Empire. Like his previous releases, this one is smeared with cruelty, bloodshed, and human-to-human bestiality. Jahangir, seated on the throne of the once glorious Mughal throne, faces the betrayal of his own son, Khurram. The habit of opium and wine soon gets on his nerves and further weakens the empire building. A riveting account of true events will keep you hooked to the end.
5. Aung San Suu Kyi: A Biography
It is another biography book that focuses on the historical journey of one of the most influential icons of Third World democracy: Aung San Suu Kyi. Written by Jesper Bengtsson, the book chronicles the arduous but awe-inspiring journey of this iron lady who has fought for peace in Myanmar for several decades. The book is a canvas of her stance on several important issues and her influences in life, including Mahatma Gandhi. On her journey she witnessed the heinous crimes being committed against the Burmese people. The story also gives a glimpse into Suu Kyi’s personal life: she could not meet her husband while he was on his deathbed because the government at the time didn’t allow her to do so. The biography is worth reading for everyone who believes that the life sacrificed for others is the real life.
