As we approach the end of the third week of 2014, we have compiled a list of ‘must-read’ books for the year just for you! Here’s what your bookshelves must acquire in this new year …
Over the past few weeks, we contacted some of our lecturers and students to pick their brains on their book-reading habits. We asked them to recommend us books that everyone must read in 2014, if they haven’t already.
The intention was to not just target industry-specific books but those titles that would benefit professionals and students alike.
Result: A selection of books spanning several fields and from across the board. Not only do the contributors to this believe this will act as knowledge-imparting texts but also as motivational sources.
Here’s is the book-shopping list that you must be taking with you to your nearest bookstore over the weekend to stock for the year:
