Book Review: iCon – Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business

This book is a cynical description of Steve Jobs. I grew up having him as an idol even if I despise the sky high prices of the product of his company. But they are successful in brainwashing people that buying Apple products makes you an elite and you can have the bragging rights to discriminate […]

Book Review: The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley

It has been 5 years ago since I began working on online projects from desks or couches of different coffee shops to different houses to bus stations to airport terminals. I realized the ideal life I’ve written 10 years ago, to work from anywhere, manifested already at 80%.. there’s still needed tweaks but I’m looking […]

Book Review: Richard Branson’s Losing my Virginity

Ok, the book’s title is a bit odd. All the while, I thought Richard Branson lost his company which is named Virgin by the way. But this serial entrepreneur got a different inspiring story.. it’s quite a motivational book to those who aspire to be serial entrepreneurs.. which means they run different businesses because they […]

Book Review: Only at Night we see the Stars by Chiara Lubich

This book was given to me by a friend from India whom I met in Tagaytay when she was not yet a nun. When I traveled to Kerala, India, I went to see her as a full pledge nun taking care of many kids in their care home. How I miss her. ^_^ .. she […]

Book Review: The Millionaire Fastlane

The Millionaire Fastlane is a book recommended in one of the Financial Forums I’m browsing around on facebook. And like the title of the book, I browsed the book and skim read as fast as I can too. Well, in this fast phased world, very few have the luxury of time.. And while I still […]

Books to read while you travel part 2

So far this is a recap of what books I’ve featured last year. I never really got to read some of them fully, and some have been read a few years before and I just had the time to feature them on grasya.com Reading a book is a great way to kill time when waiting in the […]

Book Review: The winner stands alone by Paulo Coelho

A couple of weeks ago, Mark Zuckerberg announced one of his 2015 new year’s challenge – to read books regularly. Thus A year of Books facebook group was created. I joined the book club just to be in.. :D I’ve been reading books regularly anyways. So for this year, the first book that I’ve read […]

Book Review: Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

I recently had time to read this book. Strikes me a bit because somehow it is true. There are people who have shown star quality in academics yet they struggle financially. And there are people who are like money and success magnet even if some of them do not really have a formal education. Example? […]

Book Review: 7 Habits of highly effective people – Stephen Covey

I first read the book when I was a yuppie teaching in college. Guess that’s the reason why I was able to handle big babies that are bigger (and sometimes older) than me. When I left my teaching job and eventually transferred to a corporate working environment, I then gave the book to a coworker.. […]

Mahabe Pagotan: Kasaysayan, kalinangan at lipunan ng mga Dumagat sa bahaging Bulacan ng Sierra Madre

I only got a glimpsed of the book and never got to read it but I met the author, Missionary and President of Sagip Sierra Madre Environmental Society – Brother Martin Francisco. That was during the Earth Day Celebration when I and other volunteers went to Angat Dam and met the Dumagat tribes of the […]
