What we are reading: 6 book recommendations for the Summer

An entrepreneur is a life-long learner. And one of the simplest and most effective ways to gain knowledge and insight is to read widely. Whether it's a novel on your bedside table or an in-depth scientific study, reading is one of the most beneficial leisure activities, allowing you to gain new perspectives on different topics, tips from experienced people in your area, or inspiration for your life and career.

Reading is so easy these days, and you don't even need to spend that much money. Even though reading on paper is a different experience, you can always find books online, just a click away.

There are hundreds of book recommendations on the Internet. However, we would like to share our list with you so that you can read these books in the summertime at the beach. While not all of these books are directly related to entrepreneurship, we thought they could be interesting and insightful for you.

So, if you are a book fan, take a look at these 6 books you should read this vacation:

1. The Startup Wife

Without realizing it, Asha is developing a new algorithm. She dropped out of her PhD, married Cyrus and now they both work in a unique technology incubator called Utopia and their work is a success. But will Cyrus and Asha's marriage survive the pressures of fame and success, or will she be overshadowed by the man everyone is calling a new messiah?

This is an emotional novel by award-winning author Tahmima Anam that deals with human connection, female’s view on startup culture, as well as Love VS. Business.

2. Postcapitalism: A Guide to Our Future

This book by Paul Mason is a guide to building a more equitable and sustainable society, given the continuous and seismic changes that capitalism has undergone over the past 2 centuries. Examining these changes, the author questions whether today we are facing such a profound change - driven, above all, by technologies - that capitalism itself has reached its limits and is transforming itself into something totally new.
