“Imagine, if you will, a world without Islam. Nearly impossible, it would seem, when images and references to Islam dominate our headlines, airwaves, computer screens, and political debates.”
Written by Graham E. Fuller, Former Vice Chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA. This book doesn’t judge which side is right or wrong. It’s about history that shows us about the story why Islam becomes center of the bad issue (terrorism) nowadays. You, whatever you belief, need to loosen your defense of your thought while reading this book.
“A world without Islam takes us on an illuminating journey through history, geopolitics, and religion to investigate whether there is something unique in Islam that breeds violence and conflict. Spanning the rise of Muhammad to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire to the present day, the book analyzes the roots of terrorism, the conflicts in Israel and Chechnya, and the role of Islam in supporting and energizing the anti-imperial struggle.” Read the rest of this entry
“There’s a question which is always interesting to be discussed for whoever who care of self-improvement: “Why can a person be a master of a certain skill while the others can’t?”. For mostly people, skill is talent matters. For others, skill is about exercise and repetition.”
That’s what written behind this book. Well, actually there’s additional sentence, “This book is not motivation. This book is a book which will explain to you about how to master the skill without motivations, even without thinking.” I disagree about that sentences, because people have to think about they will do in this life. Well, since that words didn’t take any effect in this book content, the book is recommended for you who want to master a good habit.
Similar to 101 Creative Notes, this book told us about how to train ourselves to routine the good habits in our life. This book is not about instant way to be a master in certain skills. Take what you want to implement, and do it. In the chapter “Let’s make habits”, we can found good tips from the writer:
- Start from small thing. Some people tend to be perfect in short time so they choose to make all in instant. Why do we start from small thing? I can say that it’s more manageable and controllable than we jump in huge improvements in one time. Our brain needs to focus too. That’s why most success people were passing through so many processes before being success. Read the rest of this entry
101 Creative Notes is one of local best seller books which wrote about how to be creative junkies. Simple and unique book—first impression I had when I passed by top 10 best sellers case in Gramedia bookstore. This book will suit for you who like to read short, simple, and clear books.
From the title, we can know what he tells us about. The writer is Yoris Sebastian, young General Manager of Hard Rock Café Jakarta. He also won International Young Creative Entrepreneur (IYCE) in London.

Written by Malcom Gladwell, author of the best selling book, #1 The Tipping Point and Blink. Unique way in telling success stories of success people. We often read books which tell us the success stories only from their good histories or give us direct motivation or even just show us a sad side of the stories. Different to this book. Outlier was wrote as outlier as its stories. Readers will get another story of success people, not always good or sad stories or simple stories. We will know that culture and chance take a role for success stories.
Started by Mystery of Roseto as prologue. Roseto Valfortore, small village, 100 miles, south east of Roma, at valley of Apennine, province of Foggia, Italy. Young doctor, Stewart Wolf and his friend, Burn were surprised by great healthy life in that village. In that age, there’s no technology or even skillful doctor to give good service. But, the fact they found that people who lived in that village were really healthy and no one had heart disease even they were old. They said,
“These people only died due to their senile. That’s all.”
Wolf and Burn observed about that anomaly. Read the rest of this entry

Written by Paul Arden, best seller writer of It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be. He was ex- executive director in Saatchi & Saatchi and one of legend in advertisement industry in England. At least that’s what’s written behind the book. Ahaha :mrgreen:.
So, what’s the content in this book? It’s self improvement. He wrote short stories of success people in the world who used unique, different way, to chase their success.
Another thing that impressed me is the design. Similar to previous book which I reviewed. Simple. Combination of red, black, white, and some talking-illustrations in it. And below is one of my fav parts. Read the rest of this entry
