Books which got me thinking recently…

Inspired by the ‘good enough’ book list posted by Jose Casal recently, I thought I’d put together a list of books I have read (or re-read) in the last six months which have either made me stop and think or pushed me to widen my view in topics of interest.

So without further ado, here it is:

  1. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert (2015)
  2. Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova (2013)
  3. Product Leadership: How Top Product Managers Launch Awesome Products and Build Successful Teams by Richard Banfield, Martin Eriksson & Nate Walkingshaw (2017)
  4. Work Rules!: Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead by Laszlo Bock (2015)
  5. FIRE: How Fast, Inexpensive, Restrained, and Elegant Methods Ignite Innovation by Dan Ward (2104)
  6. The Innovator’s Hypothesis: How Cheap Experiments Are Worth More than Good Ideas by Michael Schrage (2016)
  7. Radical Candor: How to be a Great Boss Without Losing Your Humanity by Kim Scott (2017)
  8. Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration by Ed Catmull (2014)
  9. Kanban from the Inside: Understand the Kanban Method, connect it to what you already know, introduce it with impact by Mike Burrows (2014)
  10. Creative Confidence: Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All by David & Tom Kelley (2015)
  11. The Corporate Startup: How Established Companies Can Develop Successful Innovation Ecosystems by Tendayi Viki, Dan Toma & Esther Gons (2017)

I know, I know, one ‘agile’ book? Guilty as charged – I think I always wanted to be a designer :)
