Hello there! I am Mani Vaya and I am the founder of 2000 Books. I am a Physicist and Electrical & Computer Engineer and I have been in the tech industry for 13 years. In my last job I was managing Multi-Billion Dollar Cellphone Projects at a Fortune 500 Technology company. But my passion for Learning and Entrepreneurship was calling …. and I answered.
Why 2000 Books?
Books have always fascinated me – but for a long time they were Science and Engineering books. The first book that really revolutionized my thinking was Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich “. Until I had read that book, I thought that all the great, successful entrepreneurs in this world were born, not made. But after reading that book I realized that all the great ones in all areas of life were made not born. And the more I read and learn and look at the world around me, the more I find that to be true. Reading Think and Grow Rich was like dipping my toes in the vast pool of knowledge in the world of Entrepreneurship. I was hooked. I started reading voraciously. I saw books as the path to success in Entrepreneurship and in life. And over the last 5 years I have read over 1000 books in the field of Business and Personal development. Over the last couple of years, I have been reading 7 books/week which averages to 1 book/day. I love it!
What I love even more than reading a book is breaking down those ideas, connecting them to other ideas and explaining the ideas to others.
And that was the genesis of 2000 Books. I realized that as ambitious entrepreneurs, we must a lot and constantly feed our minds with great ideas. If we read 50 books/yr for 40 years of productive life, we will end up reading 2000 books. Hence the name “2000 Books”. Here, I endeavor to bring you the most important actionable ideas from the world’s greatest books for ambitious entrepreneurs on a weekly basis. I sincerely hope that you will learn these ideas and use them to build great businesses. Please keep me posted on how these ideas help your business – I love to hear success stories. mani [–AT–] 2000books [–dot–] com
