Good Books


Bill Bryson: A Short History of Nearly Everything

What a brilliant book! Very similar to Richard Dawkins's "The Greatest Show on Earth", but is a considerably lighter and more entertaining read. Bill purposefully does not discuss creationism, thus hopefully making this book acceptable to a much wider audience, including religious people. 

We would highly recommend it to anyone who has even a slightest interest in how we got here and where we are possibly heading. Despite covering most of the topics discussed in this book back in high school, we still managed to pick up a considerable number of new ideas and historical facts.

Malcolm Gladwell - Outliers: The Story of Success

Brilliant, engaging, fascinating. Another true Gladwell masterpiece. His unique style makes you read more and once you pick the book, there is no way back.  

John Medina - Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

You can get very excited about the unknown unknowns...especially when these unknown unknowns are our brains and their patterns. Brilliant piece of work! Requires a re-read, but has a wonderful web-site to complement the book. We would highly recommend it to anyone interested in how our brains function and methods to improve your mental fitness.

Timothy Ferriss - The Four Hour Work Week

Thought provoking and unorthodox? Absolutely! Revolutionary? You don't know until you try it. Worth reading - definitely! Ever wondered whether you could possibly work less and live life to its full potential? Then this book is for you.

J. Fried & D. H. Hansson - Rework

Simple, short, straightforward, no-nonsence business advice. A great read for anyone involved in the IT industry and in business in general. 

Malcolm Gladwell - What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures.

Malclom's stories always leave you wanting more. Another great book, provocative ideas, outside-of-the-box thinking and absolutely brilliant style. 

Steve Krug - Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, 2nd Edition

An update is overdue, but even this second edition, published in 2005, is still a must read for web-developers, designers, marketing professionals, CEOs and everyone else involved in some shape or form in web usability and web-site creation. Highly recommend!

Daniel Goleman - Emotional Intelligence

A great book about different types of intelligences and why Emotional IQ (EQ) is even more important, than the ubiquitous 'book & academic smarts'. It proves again and again that our current education system is not fit for purpose.

Daniel Pink - A Whole New Mind

Great book with lots of fresh ideas and rather unique view of the all-mighty logical & intellectual mind. Apple Inc's quite recent crowning as the world's most valuable technology company is the best proof the author is generally right: logic, high IQ and perseverance (prerequisites in the Knowledge Age) can no longer guarantee success. In the new Conceptual Age - creativity, empathy and EQ are as essential, if not more...

Jack Welch - Winning

A few really good pieces of advice, a handful of great ideas and generally a very interesting and enlightening read.

Steve Krug - Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability

An update is overdue, but even this second edition, published in 2005, is still a must read for web-developers, designers, marketing professionals, CEOs and everyone else involved in some shape or form in web usability and web-site creation.

Jonah Lehrer - How We Decide

Great book! A bit similar to Malcolm Gladwell's 'Blink', but goes into considerable detail of inner workings of our brain. Very engaging and insightful. Highly recommend it.

Michael Lewis - Liar's Poker

A prequel to the Big Short (reviewed above). I've heard that it is a good book, but never realized it's that good. Some readers think of it as a 'how-to' guide to investment banking, some as an expose of everything that's wrong with the Wall Street. Whatever you take out of this book - it's certainly worth reading!

Michael Lewis - The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

The most amazing book about the greatest scam of all times - the Financial Crisis of 2008, what lead to it and lessons to be learned. Finally, a few questions we've all been asking for the past couple of years have been answered. Cannot recommend it enough to anyone even remotely interested in finance & banking, lies, politics and Wall Street.
