5 Book I believe that every college student must read

  1. Hello World

The author, Hannah Fry talks about the development of AI and how it has impacted our lives in multiple fields. I found the stories shared by her to be quite deep and insightful.

  1. Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***

It's a great book that teaches you how to focus on what’s important and stop overthinking about things that are out of our control. I call it the most REAL book ever!

  1. 4-Hour Work Week

It gives you a lot of insights into how people are running successful businesses, outsourcing work, and tips on increasing productivity to accomplish more.

  1. Rich Dad Poor Dad

It gives you a basic explanation for financing, benefits of having an LLC, real estate basics. Best book to begin with financing.

  1. How to Win Friends & Influence People

This is a great book to learn communication, something that college students lack and don't get a chance to improve. Feel free to read this book every few months. It has helped me out personally!

There are several more, but right now, these are the best ones i can think of.

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
