The National Library Board (NLB) will be showcasing a wide range of business eBooks in the heart of CBD at Chevron House from 15 – 19 January 2018, from 11am to 3pm daily.

Here’s some gems we found…
Humility is the New Smart by Edward D. Hess and Katherine Ludwig answers the modern, quintessential question: “Could a robot or smart machine replace me?” Hint: it can.
Geek Girl Rising by Heather Cabot and Samantha Walravens also does a great job on putting the spotlight on the women entrepreneurs and technologists in a male-centric Silicon Valley.
And hey! If you’ve amassed years of knowledge and experience in your field, why not put it all together in a book? Story Genius by Lisa Cron takes us through the ins-and-outs of the brain, and a step-by-step process that will spare you from that pesky writer’s block.
