Your weekend reading list

Shiv Sethuraman, chief executive officer, TBWA India, makes his recommendations for your bookshelf

Your weekend reading list

Shiv Sethuraman, chief executive officer, TBWA India, had the following suggestions for this week's reading list:

 

 

"Am currently bang-smack-in-the-middle of two fascinating books. The first is called 'Parisians' by Graham Robb. It is the story of one of the world's most enduringly fascinating cities as seen by its famous, infamous and sometimes anonymous inhabitants. You will meet Emile Zola, Sartre, Miles Davis and Hitler among others and see Paris as they saw it. For me, one more perspective on a city I've had the pleasure to call home for eight years.


The other book I am reading is book three in a series on Genghis Khan called 'Bones of the Hills' by Conn Iggulden. The books take a fascinating look at the man who created the world's largest contiguous empire. His precarious childhood, his rise to power among the tribes of Mongolia and his fierce ambition to destroy the Chin empire make for a thrilling read. Crack for history junkies!"
