Discussion on: My best book recommendations for solo developers

Great post and +1 to the recommendation of "The Goal", I studied industrial engineer in the university, and that book was one of the most eye opener books in those years, we spend multiple courses studying increasingly more complex models and optimization methods to balance lines of production, adding more and more variables to make "more precise" mathematical models and simulations; and one day it came this little book with its stupidly simple premise that gave great results it was almost like cheating, you really need that extra 0,001% of precision that is most likely error anyway? is really worth the extra complexity, work and drift from the core problem and solution?.
