Institute members on what music they are currently listening to and what books are worth reading

What I’m listening to

“I’m currently listening to SZA, an alternative R&B artist. I heard her on a music track in Black Panther: The Album with American rapper Kendrick Lamar, and I was immediately attracted by her voice. It’s called All The Stars, and is my favourite song from that album. If I’m cruising around town or winding down after work, her album Z, released back in 2014, would be perfect to play through the speakers.”

– Jonathan Chow, CFO at Yuk Wing Group Holdings

What I’m reading

Last summer, I read The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life by Mark Manson. In life and business, I often found myself caring too much about many small things which don’t actually matter. Reading this book really made me take a good look at myself, and start learning how to let go of the small stuff, so I can focus on the more important issues. Amazon.com, HK$122.12

– David Gallie, Co-founder of Black Kite Brewery

I’m reading From Dependence to Dignity: How to Alleviate Poverty through Church-centered Microfinance by Brian Fikkert and Russell Mask. I like the idea of utilizing microfinance to serve the financial needs of poor families and communities. It goes beyond charity and monetary donations. The book emphasizes the importance of best practice elements of financial system management to achieve a sustainable financial system. It also explores microfinance models for different poverty levels. Amazon.com, HK$77.96

– Doris Luk, Partner at S.K. Luk & Co.

I’m currently reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. The book is about how an ordinary little girl growing up in a working-class family in Chicago became the first African-American First Lady ever in history. The book is powerful and compelling and makes you feel as if you are walking side-by-side and witnessing her extraordinary journey. A true inspirational and genuine book! Amazon.com, HK$140.36

– Eileen Chong, Manager at Yicko Securities Limited
