Should you have to time read during the upcoming holidays, here’s a reading list that’s highly recommended. This comes from Sam Parr of the Hustle. He recommended this list in 2015 and according to him, you’ll know more than 99% of MBA graduates once you’ve gone through these books. I’ve read Mastery and 48 Laws of Power so far. Both great reads.
