After the beachTech effort, we wanted to wish our entire eco-system a very happy and well-deserved holiday! But not without a little summer reading… Here are some of XAnge’s finest picks of this year — inspiration for those lazy afternoons and not-so-lazy minds! Hope you’ll enjoy them.

Tina Seelig is responsible for the Stanford Technology Ventures Program. This book is full of advice for entrepreneurs (and others). It’s also a good starting point for teachings on entrepreneurship.

We all make biased decisions on a regular basis. Here’s a book that will help to identify them and set up specific strategies in order to avoid them — a wider insight into our “zero risk” society.

The 10 voodoo methods for hiring (cf number 4) — and how to do without!

A fabulous book on how to build ‘habit-forming’ products: i.e. tech products with strong retention and usage. A must-read for all B2C Product Managers.

An in depth and critical reflection on the “augmented human.” Will it endanger our social cohesion?

Unveils, among others, thatthe average lifespan of a corporation listed on the S&P index has already dropped from about 60 to 18 years…

This is a truly inclusive book, for all readers. Descriptions and discussions are presented with a commendable lack of jargon and examples are clear and accessible.

Here’s a very compelling scenario planner for the numerous ways in which we might outsmart ourselves.

A bible on self-esteem at work based on three dimensions: Inclusion (Am I in or am I out = significance), Control (What impact do I have?) and Openness (If I say the truth, will I be loved or rejected?)

)

A book by one of the creators of the Decision Theory — delving into how our minds work and how we can avoid decision biases.

More relevant than ever: the dynamics of economic “bubbles” and “golden ages”.

To be or not to be in a bubble… Tell me if you know!

A disruptive approach to risk-taking: from the blackjack table to hedge fund management.
