Non-Tech Books On My Desk

This post is inspired by Andy Warren’s ( b | t ) “Books On The Desk” post.

I’ve got plenty of SQL Server books at home (physical and Kindle versions). But if I’m not in the mood of reading a tech book but itching to read anyway, I’d grab any book that interests me at the moment.

If I found a book interesting enough, I’d keep it for re-reading. Some of the books I listed below are rereads.

These are the books on my “reading desk” (read/re-read):

  • “The Art of the Start” by Guy Kawasaki

  • “The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick) ” by Seth Godin
  • “Outliers: The Story of Success” by Malcolm Gladwell

What’s Next:

  • “Rework” by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson
  • “The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses” by Eric Ries
  • “Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us” by Seth Godin
  • “Tribal Leadership: Leveraging Natural Groups to Build a Thriving Organization” by Dave Logan et al

What’s on the Bookshelf:
