What I’m listening to
I’ve been listening to Whitney Houston’s The Greatest Love Of All. I learned about this song while practicing for my grade 5 vocal exam. I was quite touched by the lyrics, as the song talks about having faith in our future and becoming a better society.

One of the books I have read recently is AI Superpowers by Kai-Fu Lee. The book provides a macro view of the artificial intelligence scene, the Sino-American competition and the advantages and disadvantages that each country has over the other. It also provides interesting case studies on why certain start-ups excel or fail in Mainland China.

Many of us are using the extra time at home to binge on “box sets” on Netflix, but why not take the time to plough through one of Harvard Business Review’s definitive collections? HBR’s 10 Must Reads Ultimate Boxed Set has compiled some of the most important ideas on management into a 14-volume paperback series. Readers may find one of the books, HBR’s 10 Must-Reads on Change Management, particularly pertinent given the inevitability of change both now and post-virus.
