Dr.Mani is a heart surgeon who also works to spread congenital heart disease (CHD) awareness and raises funds heart surgery in under-privileged Indian children. Dr.Mani has written several ebooks and the popular print book, "47 Hearts - How To Live Your Dreams With Passion, Purpose & Persistence".
A share of the profits from all of his book sales go towards helping a child receive life-saving surgery. Dr.Mani Children Heart Foundation is a non-profit that has funded 108 heart operations in children - with many more to follow. Dr.Mani hopes that you'll join in this initiative, and order some books from the list.
Equally important is your support in spreading word about this mission. Please help spread CHD awareness. And buy a book - or ten. You'll be helping heal a child's heart!
What do you read for pleasure?
My reading interests are diverse. For fiction and light reading, I enjoy mystery novels, adventure thrillers and romantic comedy. I'm always happy to read childrens' books and still devour any Enid Blyton or Hardy Boys books I can lay my hands on. Among my favorite authors are Agatha Christie, P.G.Wodehouse, Gerald Durrell, Mario Puzo, Robert Ludlum and John Locke.
In addition, I read plenty of non-fiction including how to guides, self improvement books, biographies, history textbooks and science (quantum physics, astronomy, molecular biology and genetics/genomics are special interests). Authors I particularly enjoy reading are Stephen Covey, Nick Lane, Michio Kaku, Steven Pinker, Malcolm Gladwell, and Jared Diamond.
So, as you can see, the range and taste of my reading material is all over the place. I aim to read at least 3 new books every month, and generally manage to hit this target.
