Make reading a habit
Thomas Deceuninck

Hi Thomas!

I’ve been reading (or truthfully, listening to) 80+ books a year since 2011, so I can point you in many directions ☺. I’d suggest you got yourself a Goodreads to keep track of the process, and as an IMDB for books of sorts.

As a new parent, I’ll strongly recommend you go through the following books ASAP:

  • No-Drama Discipline by Daniel J. Siegel & Tina Payne Bryson
  • Heart-to-Heart Parenting by Robin Grille

These will give you a great understanding of the child’s mind, as well as tips and tricks for getting away from the bad parenting habits earlier generations have impressed on us.

Another book for the self-improvement shelf I’d recommend is
• Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Jeff Sutherland and JJ Sutherland.
You don’t have to aim for employing Scrum fully in your team to enjoy this book—I found it’s overall outlook on software development to be inspiring.

And when it comes to reading for entertainment, my list is waaay too long, so I’ll just list one book:
• Imajica by Clive Barker
It’s an unforgettable journey in itself and definitely worth a read.

You can message me on Goodreads for more suggestions.
