5 stars

If you're looking for a light-hearted and humorous take on Czech culture, then Terje B. Englund's The Czechs in a Nutshell is the book for you. Englund, a Norwegian journalist who has lived in the Czech Republic for many years, pokes fun at many of the quirks and customs of his adopted countrymen in a way that is both affectionate and good-natured.

While some stereotypes Englund perpetuates may be familiar to those who have already visited the Czech Republic, others are more original, and all of them are presented in a way that is sure to make readers laugh. In addition to providing plenty of amusement, The Czechs in a Nutshell also offers a glimpse into the day-to-day reality of life in the Czech Republic, making it an enjoyable and informative read for anyone interested in the country.

Trillion Dollar Coach (Hardcover, 2019, HarperBusiness) 4 stars

Read this book if you want to play a management game

4 stars

Any aspiring leader should read this book at least once. The main points are:

  1. Some ideas are very tempting: be human.
  2. Swearing a lot helps.
  3. Drink beer.

In some way reading this book I could not believe that such people exist, are valued and are not a myth. The people who created this book have succeeded in creating a credible and successful business model that is based on real life stories. Moreover, the great thing about the book is that it is not a secret club for the chosen ones only and for anybody who wants to succeed can follow the steps outlined in the book. It doesn’t matter what industry or sector you are involved in, there are valuable lessons to be learned from the book, with no need for any MBA. It is exactly the type of books that demonstrate the importance of a good leadership and explain …

Interesting book that made me angry

4 stars

I have recently finished this book, and it made me angry somehow. Everything is connected in Silicon Valley, and nobody knows what to do when shit happens. It's like a machine that keeps going and going without anyone knowing how to stop it. All the young blood turns into old blood and the cycle starts again.

This book is about a bunch of young people who move to Silicon Valley and start their own companies. Some fail and some succeed, but all of them are changing the world in one way or another.

A lot of help and struggles come from right connections, be it a status quo challenges or old farts that do not want "the progress". All of them are protecting their pals, and it's really frustrating because we lose more and more freedoms, and we are protected from the wrong influences.

The book talks about three main …

Ar čia kas nors yra? (Paperback, Lietuvių language, E. Tombak) 4 stars

“Ar čia kas nors yra?” – tai dokumentinis tyrimas mokslo ir dvasingumo, mistinių reiškinių tema. …

Smagu, kad atsiranda tokius reiškinius nagrinėjantys žmonės Lietuvoje ir lietuviškai

4 stars

Yra įdomių pasakojimų, interpretacijų ir atsakymų į klausimus, kurie rūpi vienu ar kitu metu daugumai žmonių. Patiko, kad dauguma žmonių galima susirasti internete ir pasigilinti į jų vykdomas veiklas ir projektus. Skaitant pagalvojau, kad prieš kreipiantis pas specialistus - jie turėtų pasidalinti savo požiūriu į knygoje nagrinėjamas temas, nes kartais atrodė, kad vartotikai blaivesnio proto ir požiūrio į gyvenimą, nei sielos gydytojai. Na, bet yra ir žmonių, kurie bent iš šnekos pasirodė tikri mokslo atstovai, kurie gavę naujų įrodymų - keičia ir savo požiūrį - tokiems žmonėms visada pagarba.
