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...

C++ Best Practices by Jason Turner

This is a book that I’ve been waiting for to finally read for a long time. I could have bought it, but I decided that it’ll be the first book that I buy from the royalties I earned with How to use const in C++. My hard-earned money was well...

The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level by Gay Hendricks

The Big Leap! Who doesn’t want to take the big leap? I bet there are many. Stepping up always involve some risks and humans, in general, are more afraid of loss and therefore they are more risk-averse than thrill-seeking. And there is more to that. Even if on the surface...

Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual (Second edition) by John Sonmez

This is the second edition of the book and it was promised to include some important updates. As I liked the first edition and I could it get from Amazon for less than 10 Euros, I gave it a try. In general, I can say that most of the changes...

How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen by Joanna Faber and Julie King

I just finished filling up my kindle with books enough probably for the whole year based on the recommendations of Naval Ravikant, when I ran into this book. Often, I find it difficult at home with the kids. You know, eating with 2 little fellows, trying to grow them, manage...

C++ 20: Get the details by Rainer Grimm

I could say that I picked C++ 20: Get the details up because I wanted to learn about the latest version of C++. I wouldn’t lie if I said so, but truth be told I was already an avid reader of Modernes C++, the blog of Rainer Grimm who wrote...

Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life by Nassim Taleb

I read once again a very interesting book by Nassim Taleb. I realized that I don’t just like his books, but I sympathize with the author, with his style, with his sarcasm. More than that, I like that someone without social sciences background writes about philosophy, about life. He is...

Clean Agile: Back to Basics by Robert C. Martin

Clean Agile comes from Uncle Bob, one of the founding fathers of Agile, one of the seventeen people who authored the Agile Manifesto back in 2001. I thought he might have some interesting thoughts on the beast they released on the software development industry. He taught me even more. The...
