This blog post highlights the books mentioned by Alisa Cohn, Cara Bradley, and Marc Lesser on my podcast “The Nishant Garg Show”. My goal is to tease out the habits and routines of the experts in their fields. We don’t have to reinvent the same wheel when someone else has already invented it. Take the approach, tweak it and experiment with it based on your environments, constraints, and variables.
Sometimes when I read a book, I don’t always understand it or find it compelling to keep reading it. It doesn’t mean that the book is bad — either I have a knowledge gap to understand the book’s content or I am not where I need to be to grasp a particular book.
Here you go!
