Books as of now

I have finished reading

iCon: Steve Jobs, The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business

It is a marvellous book about the life of Steve Jobs, he is a man of substance.
This book is an unofficial biography of the man, and his quest of power, how is thrown form his own company and later makes a comeback.

He in the process founds two more companies NExT and Pixar and how his fortunes takes him on a roller coaster ride. Being a ardous follower of Zen and a strict veggie, he often projected himself as a harsh fellow, disrespecting people's love for non-veg.

This book nrrates many anecdotes of his life and is a must for every bibliophile.

Steve Jobs was the most shrewd manager one can have, employees in Apple stopped using the elevator which he use to use, for the fear of losing their jobs by the time they exit from the elevator.

I simply loved this book and will recommend this to everyone.

Presently I'm eyeing the book
The KaoBoys of R&AW by B Raman

The book is on the author's memory lane while he was in R&AW and i have heard this book reveals quite a few astonishing facts.

My flatmate purchased it and once he finishes it i'll grab it.

I'll surely post about this also once I finish it.

I am sure you've read his speech at Stanford Convocations. One of the best speeches ever.

I was currently gifted iWoz, Steve Woznaik's biography (and I'm yet to start :D )
BTW, it's very interesting to note that you can find people who'd blame Jobs, Linus, RMS..... but it's very difficult to find someone who can blame Woz. The only gentleman, I guess :)
