WAYA Book Club: Ahmed Atalla, Co-Founder at Raseedi

Ahmed Atalla’s a Co-Founder of Raseedi, shares his favorite books along with his favorite quotes from those publications.

Atalla told WAYA he isn’t much of a fan of self-progress or entrepreneurship books. He says “I like books that revolve around people, their journeys and their feelings. I simply believe the best inspiration comes from people, how they interact with one another and how they react to the journey of life.”

Here are Atalla’s favorite books:

For one more day – Mitch Albom

“You can find something truly important in an ordinary minute.”

Meditations on first philosophy – Rene Descartes

“An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out?”

I’ll Tell Your Story – Ahmed Mahana

“Time is passing by and patience is just not enough.”

The First Phone Call From Heaven – Mitch Albom

“Fear is how you lose your life…a little bit at a time…What we give to fear, we take away from…faith.”

Where the Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens

“There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.
