Jumpstart Your Career With These Books

These books transformed my professional career. I'm sharing the initial list and would like to keep adding resources as I discover them.

I really wish I had discovered these books earlier in my career.

Which books were transformative to your career? Let me know in the comments section.

What I like about your list is the diversity of topics.

Adding to your Management section, I would recommend “Peopleware” by De Marco and Lister. It’s a great position on team productivity, not only from manager’s point of view.

Grokking Algorithms: An Illustrated Guide for Programmers and Other Curious People by Aditya Bhargava, I found incredibly useful in gaining an intuitive understanding of all things algorithms when I was starting out.

I saw your list and it's awesome. I would add one book that changed my career too. GOOS - Growing Object Oriented Software Guided By Tests.

Thanks for sharing
