Over the years I’ve read hundreds of technical books. Some of them had some great new ideas, others were great introductions to specific topics, and others had a knack for explaining some complex topic in a very easy to understand way. But in the end, which books had the most impact on me? If I had to go back and pick only a handful of books, which ones would I pick? This is that list.
Here’s a book I wish every manager would read, especially the managers in charge of my project (pure self-interest in my part, I admit it). It’s short, focused, to the point, and it drives home a very powerful message: By being constantly busy working you’re probably hurting your project and your company.
