"Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers" – Harry S. Truman


Overview

I read most of my books in a physical form. For shorter books and while traveling, I often carry around Kindle Fire HD 7'' and read e-books. Other than reading, I also study by listening a lot of audiobooks, interviews and podcasts. For that I use iPhone and Sennheiser MM450-X -headphones with active noise cancellation. Below your can find my top picks around different categories.
