- On Information Technology, one may want to consider the biography of Apple’s founder 'Steve Jobs' (by Walter Isaacson), a story of the roller-coaster life and intense personality of creative entrepreneur Steve Jobs, whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
- Yet another great read is 'Bill Gates: A Biography' (by Michael Becraft), where the book examines the life and achievements of a standout American inventor, philanthropist & the co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, who helped transform society by ushering in the era of ubiquitous personal computing.
- 'My Years with General Motors' (by Alfred Sloan) can be a picky read for a motor head in which the book details the time Sloan led the General Motors Corporation to international business success by virtue of his brilliant managerial practices and provides insights into the new consumer economy he and General Motors helped to produce.
- If war fiction interests you, then am sure you would love to read 'The Best & The Brightest' (by David Halberstam) in which the author holds forth on the Vietnam war, the foreign policies crafted by the academics and intellectuals in the US administration and the disastrous consequences of those policies in Vietnam.
- 'Papillon' (meaning black butterfly in French, by Henri Charrière) is yet another interesting read about Papillon's incarceration and subsequent escape from the French penal colony of French Guyana. The sequel to Papillon, 'Banco' (by Henri Charrière) is a compelling read too about the author’s life in Venezuela, where he escaped from the penal colony on Devil's Island.
