...must read...


I have reading a lot regularly these days...Now of course mainly because i have nothing productive to do...But then...its good in a way...reading and completing books which were long pending..
Now...I dont generally write about books in my blog...actually...this is actually the first time i am even mentioning it...and there is a reason for it...

I actually have a fairly good collection of books and I do keep a track of all the latest books doing the circles...
This blog post however is not abt my collection of books...its about this book i just finished reading...

Its a autobiography by LEE ICOCCA...I think its a must read for any person who has seen FAILURE in his life...small or big...
The guy has done some amazing deeds...taken Chrysler from a 160 million loss to one of the best car company it is now...
The book also reflects office politics at FORD and the best thing is ...he is blunt at blaming and abusing Henry Ford for all the pain he caused him...
(And its not like he is balming him in the air....he gives facts and situations where Henry was wrong!)

Everyone who dreams of making it big...should catch this book...because...somewhere it teaches you how to stand up when you fall...


"The trick is to make sure you don't die waiting for prosperity to come."

"Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but then, by God, do something. Don't just stand there, make it happen."

"In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive."
