Best beach reads right now


By Nadja Atwal
The beach is calling us all year around and for many this is the place to find the time for a good read, especially since we know how reading books is what successful people do, supposedly. Granted not all readers are leaders but: all leaders are readers.  So we asked Kyle Wallgren, award winning serial entrepreneur and CEO of the innovative reading app EDSOMA, what books will make your day at the beach sweeter and smarter.

Start-up realityHatching Twitter by Nick Bilton 
This is about twitter and focuses on  the people who started it, including their backgrounds, personalities and infighting of the  the four co-founders (Noah Glass, Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone, Evan Williams) . Current CEO Jack Dorsey in particular gets a very sinister review, as he is being characterized as incompetent guy with tunnel vision and a horrible moral compass.

Celebrity biography : Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey a story about Matthew’s  life growing up and always taking the positive out of everything. A mix of biography and guide, the Hollywood star tells his story including a rough childhood that included corporal punishment and his parents divorcing and remarrying each other twice! Highly recommended is the audio version read by the author himself.
