Courage Is Calling: Fortune Favors The Brave by Ryan Holiday

Courage Is Calling is dedicated to discussing courage which is one of the four most important stoic virtues: Justice Temperance Wisdom Courage This also means that we can expect at least 3 other books from Holiday in the coming few years. As we could get used to it with his...

The Ape That Understood The Universe by Steve Stewart-Williams

I read on Twitter recently that not understanding the masculine-feminine dynamic explains why society is so confused. I’d push this more forward by saying that we don’t really understand any dynamics. We think we are so smart that we are not led at all by biology except for basic physiological...

Science, Strategy and War: The Strategic Theory of John Boyd by Frans Osinga

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you probably remember that I started to study Boyd’s thoughts a couple of months ago. It all started with a book recommendation from Ryan Holiday about Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War. Since then I posted about...

The Beginning of Infinity by David Deutsch

This is not going to be like my regular book reviews. It cannot be. It was so long… It took me so much time. I’m reading almost every day after I wake up and before I go to bed. Okay, I was on vacation while I had this book in...

The Unicorn Project by Gene Kim

The Phoenix Project was a novel on the DevOps transformation of an imaginary company from the perspective of the new VP of IT Operations. The The Unicorn Project is a novel about the same transformation from a developer perspective. If you had a feeling while reading The Phoenix Project that...

The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim

The Phoenix Project is a fantastic book that is both a professional book aiming to guide teams and “a novel about IT, DevOps, and how to help your business win”. It’s written in a style I love the most and I think we have a clear lack of this type...

Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War by Robert Coram

I found this book in the monthly reading list I receive from Ryan Holiday. I was not sure what the biography of a fighter pilot would offer to me, but the subtitle of the book is The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War. A fighter pilot, who made...

Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Jeff Sutherland

I recently read Clean Agile by Uncle Bob and probably that’s why my Kindle recommended me to read Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time on Agile by another founder of the Agile Manifesto. Well, if there is one person who is more equal among...

The Richest Man in Babylon by George S Clason

The Richest Man in Babylon was first published in 1926, almost one hundred years ago. We might think about it as the father of all modern personal finance advice books. Especially if we consider that it’s based on a collection of parables that were written 4,000 years ago in the...

The 4 C's formula by Dan Sullivan

I rarely review shortish free e-books, but when I thought about it, I realized there is no real reason behind. In fact, is that a problem that a book is shorter than a 100 pages? Value should not be tied to length. If you think about my book on How...
