I asked myself this question and couldn’t come up with a good answer as to why not… Histories greatest leaders and thinkers and I’m completely disconnected.
To be honest I’ve only read two serious biographies in my life, which is dismal. So today I went to the book store and picked up these six books:
There’s not much available at English bookstores in Indonesia but I think these six make a good mix of business and political leaders. I’m going to publicly commit to reading all 6 of these biographies in a 30 day period (april 14- may 14) and will do a write up about what I learned and how they influenced me when I’m completed reading them.
Maybe I never saw the utility in biographies but I’ll soon find out. My aim is to finish going through them by May 14th, then I’ll post an epic (or not epic) write up about them.
Have you read any awesome biographies before? Pass on your recommendation to me in the comments!
Or how about you join me? Share or tweet this post and publicly commit to a biography reading bender’
