Interview with dylanloh

What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill
2. The Power of Positive Thinking
3. Murder on the Orient Express
4. And Then There Were None
5. Bourdieu in International Relations

I have many favorite books but if I were forced to choose, this would be it. The last book on the list is curious because it is, strictly speaking, neither fiction nor non-fiction. It's inclusion is due to the French thinker's impact on my own academic work.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mystery novels and thrillers
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Singapore and my own difficult childhood (I detail this in my book 'Fail Fast, Fail Hard, Fail Often') made me who I am. It drove me, relentlessly, to seek out the meaning of happiness and success on my terms and how I can help others reach theirs.
