Rich father poor father, magic of thinking big and other books of the year

Well hello


The year is getting to its end, who would not think it's the most suitable time to analyze the books I've read so far?

1. The magic of thinking big by D. J. Schwartz

 / penguin random house /

The most inspiring book so far.


2. Rich dad poor dad by R. T. Kiyosaki

/ wikipedia /
#1 personal finance book of all time? Looks more like garbage to me.


3. You are a badass at making money by J. Sincero
 / kobo.com /
To some point inspiring. Bullshit to a lot of other points.


4. #GIRLBOSS by S. Amoruso

 / goodreads /

Total bullshit, a poetic retelling of main character's bio.


5. Take your time by Easwaran
  / goodreads /

Total bullshit, the content of this small book can be expressed in one sentence: less bustle, more meditation.


6. Accelerated C++ by A. Koening and B. E. Moo


/slant/

As the authors state at the beginning of the book, it is a transcript of the course they used to teach to C programmers. Agonizingly obvious at times and mediocre at others.


Next year I'll try to read at least one book a month.
