- 1984 by George Orwell (Oh yeah, the Big Brother is watching you!).
- Animal Farm by George Orwell (All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others).
- Ulysses by James Joyce (Praised by T.S. Elliot and Ernest Hemingway. Need I say more?)
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (the story of dreams).
- The Zahir by Paulo Coelho (and the story of obsession).
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (It will tell you what true courage is all about). By the way, the movie is also pretty good: To Kill a Mockingbird
- William Shakespeare: Hamlet (You might have liked Haider, but you will certainly love the book).
- War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy (btw, it has more characters than GOT).
- The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (check, check, check and DON’T PANIC)
- The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand (it depicts how an ideal man may behave like).
- Atlas Shrugged: Another masterpiece my Ayn Rand. I have just started it, so no comments. But it's recommended by almost every reader.
- First Among Equals by Jeffrey Archer Playing for the highest stakes of all . . . In the 1960s, four ambitious new MPs take their seats at Westminster. Over three decades they share the turbulent passions of the race for power with their wives and families, men and women caught up in a dramatic game for the highest stakes of all. But only one man can gain the ultimate goal - the office of Prime Minister. I have read it twice. Highly recommended.
- The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy (Now many may not agree with this choice, but it does depict some harsh realities of India).
- Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson (Read this book to ignite your entrepreneurial spirit and also to know the true story of one of the most influential entrepreneurs of the world).
- Zero to One by Peter Thiel (If you want to be an entrepreneur, then you have to buy this book).
- The Hard Thing about Hard Thing by Ben Horowitz (and this one too. And a must for all the non-entrepreneurs too. And students. And teachers. And teens. And all others who breathe in oxygen and exhale co2)
- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill ( this book helps you to have a fixed goal in your life and also to achieve it).
- A Brief History Of Time by Stephen Hawking (everything from the Big Bang to black holes).
- The Best of Ruskin Bond by (of course) Ruskin Bond (though I haven’t read it completely, but I still won’t shy away from recommending it).
- The Art of War by Sun Tzu (sometimes, strategy is everything)
