  • Coders at Work by Peter Seibel. I must admin, I haven't completed it, yet. Still got 1/3 to go, but it's really an amazing book where Peter interviews all time programming super stars like Ken Thompson, Brendan Eich, Donald Knuth and more.
  • Permutation City - A fiction book that can easily leave you stunned, if you are a physics and philosophy geek.

I just went ahead and bought Coders at Work, I can't wait to start it! Thanks!

If you're into startups, Founders At Work is fantastic. It is a bit dated though in the startup world.

Nice! I'll have to see how I like coders at work and see if I'll grab this as well. Thank you!

Yup, was just about to recommend Coders at Work. Great, great book! I have Bernie Cosell and Donald Knuth's interviews still to read. And once done, I will go back and re-read all the interviews again. Such a gem that book!

Thanks Petar, about book you share. I like it, the Coders at Work.

I don't know if you're searching for "tech-related" books only, anyway, this is not such a good period for me but I found some weird comfort reading Mark Manson's The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, give it a shot if you want.

I actually bought this one yesterday and am looking forward to starting it! And I'll take books of all kinds haha!

My favorite book so far this year is Hello World: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine by Hannah Fry. It is a fun book about the progress of algorithms and their impact in our lives thus far, and where their influences might go.

I'm a huge fan of Hans Rosling.

I haven't finished this book yet, but I really like Factfulness by Hans Rosling.

I also love Bill Gates' video review @ gatesnotes.com/Books/Factfulness.

I will definitely look into this one!Thanks!

  • The Phoenix Project
  • Radical Candor

Will definitely check this out, thank you!

Making Work Visible Felt like it explained a lot issues we have where I work. Somehow need to stop letting people hide everything.

How to Win Friends and Influence People !
