  • "Shaping": Finished reading, about product management and team collaboration, quite practical, with an online reading version available.
  • "Princess Ya": Currently reading, a modern elite woman who marries into the Japanese royal family, and then what? Will she drive reform or be institutionalized?
  • "Don't Think About That Elephant": Currently reading, the author's other book "The Metaphors We Live By" is more famous, but this one about the elephant is quite boring.
  • "Lee Kuan Yew's Worldview": Finished reading, revisited this book after finishing "The Deng Xiaoping Era," still admire Lee Kuan Yew's vision.
