books i love


I love reading book of inspiring role models. Nevertheless there are a lot of books out there that - in my opinion - are a waste of time. Sometimes I read a book and thought: "Well, nothing new." Others provided me with tipps and inspiration that changed the way I work and think. In order to save you some time, I put together a list of books I really love and can refer. I hope you like them as much as I do. Best Robin

 

PS: I publish a book review once in a while. So at the beginning my list will be modest. Let me know when you want to see here books that inspired you.


Ashlee Vance: Elon Musk, Tesla, Paypal and SpaceX, and the Quest for a fantastic future

Executive summary:

A great book, because it includes several great stories and anecdotes that teach how companies are build

Interesting insights into the empire of Elon Musk and the digital transformation of the world

Very motivational. If you have a bad day - the right read for you!

 

Full book review: To be honest at the beginning, i didn’t know exactly what to expect from reading this book. Elon Musk is a great personality, a very famous entrepreneur but whose ideas goes to the limit of impossibility. His life is in a constant midst between reality and fantasy. His vision and dynamism to tackle growing human concerns into new revolutionizing features such as Tesla was a slap in the face to all those who didn’t trust nor believed in his vision. I wanted to read the biography of the man whose ingenious innovation and efforts offers a bright new future for mankind. The full book review read here.

Full Book review:

This book is not for everyone! This was the impression I got from the moment I started reading Brad Stones biography of Jeff Bezos. It basically talks about how Jeff Bezos developed Amazon from an Online Book Store to the multi-billion Dollar enterprise as we know it today.  The book also describes how Amazon disrupted the retail industry.
