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...

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...
