9. Men are from Mars Women are from Venus by John Gray
This book will look like a relationship guide in the first view but actually explains the general psychology of both the genders and so is helpful to both men and women. The author has well observed the behavior patterns of people and explained the same in a very descriptive way. Some people might think that he has stereotyped both the genders but I think that was the way the author used to describe both the genders separately.
10. Rashmirathi by Ramdhari Singh Dinkar
This is the best work in Hindi literature. This book tells you the whole Mahabharata from the perspective of Karna, a character in the Indian Epic Mahabharata. It is also available in English translated version by the name “Charioteers of Rays”. This book the best work in the heroic genre in my view. You would find no flaw in this book, also the message given by Dinkar in every stanza is really impressive and uplifting.
