How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future_Hauterfly

How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future

“The beauty of reading about somebody else’s struggle is that there is hope to overcome your own. Elon Musk’s journey from online payment gateways to electronic vehicles to solar powered cities to space travel shows that you don’t need to be an expert or even have the knowledge of a particular industry to start a business. The skirmish within each of his ventures tells our generation that it’s OK to be scared, as long as there’s curiosity and a clear vision. An amazing read by possibly the world’s most important entrepreneur.”

The Kite Runner_Hauterfly

The Kite Runner

“This one will always remain one of my favourites, even though my preferred genre is thriller.The simplicity with which this book is written is vastly different from the complexity of emotions it evokes in you. Recommended read for sure.”

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows_Hauterfly

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows

The Deathly Hallows has a little bit of everything: friendship (and the difficulties that come with it), dark times, struggle, loyalty (Harry’s choice of destroying the Horcruxes instead of chasing the Hallows, as set by Dumbledore), a wizarding battle, sacrifice, heartbreak, and of course, the victory of good over evil. It includes intense story reveals and manages to change all our opinions about the story’s second most-hated character (Snape) to probably the most-loved character. A fitting end to one of the best fantasy storylines of our generation.”
Misaal Turakia, 25, Senior Software Engineer
Connect The Dots_hauterfly

Connect The Dots

“An inspiring book that brings out the inner entrepreneur in me. It is about 20 people who took risks, didn’t have the necessary education qualifications, and still managed to win the world. If that is not motivating, I don’t what is!”

Anmol Gehani, 21, Social Media Strategist

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand_hauterfly

The Fountainhead

“The Fountainhead has been with me for more than a decade now. As surprising as it, this was infact one of the first books that I ever got down to read (which, ofcourse, no one forced down my throat). To be 100% honest, I hated it as much back then as I love it. The book seemed too texty, too long and quite plain.The book has taught me that fortitude is one quality that ever human should inculcate and   how to stand by your beliefs even in the toughest times.”

Manish Jain, 38, Investment Banker
