Books I read last year

January 22, 2011

Books by Rui Soares

Some books I have (Oops! Spotted one to return for a friend)

A bit more on five “business” books I read last year:

Rework –  Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson

Read it slowly. Packed with unorthodox perspectives on work. Loved Recruting and Competition.

The Power of LessLeo Babauta

Focus and priorities based on limits. Deceptively simple approach on productivity.

LinchpinSeth Godin

How to became a linchpin. A leader. From the uber-leader.

Who killed change?Ken Blanchard, John Britt, Pat Zigarmi, and Judd Hoekstra

Great private investigation on who killed change in an organization. I love good stories, don’t we all?

What Technology wantsKevin Kelly

Kevin knows. Excellent to make one think on technology. Well, the “technium”…

I’d love to hear about the books you loved to read last year. One of humankind’s best technology ever – the book.

About to read a bit more on "Rework" at Algarve, Portugal
