IME's Recommended Books

IME's Recommend Books list only contains books that: 
  • I have personally read before.
  • Are beneficial and will add further value to the reader.
You may purchase these books from your local book store or via international online bookstores such as BookDepository

Why BookDepository and not Amazon? 
  • FREE shipping charges to anywhere in this world (Malaysia included) with no minimum amount spent required. Being a voracious reader, I've saved a lot on shipping cost ever since I switched to BookDepository.
  • Just because Amazon is the popular option does not mean it is the best. If you're already planning to purchase online, why not go for the best option that can offer you the biggest savings. Be smart, be savvy and be different.
