A book you will revisit again and again(Audible book)

Recommending this book highly! And will be listened to again and again.

The way Ozan wrap up thinking processes and more in exciting stories is great (and yes most stories have to do with space and rocket scientist). Great book!

Think and Act Like a Rocket Scientist

I was a bit unsure about this title, I have read many books like this and most are quite dry, I'm glad to say however that this is not one of those books.

The stories are short and interesting and the lessons are well signposted, its always nice to hear the authors narrate their book too.

Not rocket science

Loved it. Narrated in easy to understand words that does not need any prior scientific knowledge. It has many leadership points.
