Really good book on customer service and the customer’s experience. I read it on the recommendation of some folks in Support Driven and am very glad I did.
The second novel (of four) in the series that comes after the events of Avogadro Corp, which is another great book.
Focuses on Golan Trevize as he travels from world to world in search of Earth.
Another Foundation series novel (as is perhaps obvious from the title). Holds up well with the others and continues a very consistent storytelling approach.
A short read on making life decisions. It’s an expansion of the author’s blog post from 2014 of the same title.
A fairly bland business book based on the author’s work as a CEO and investor. Many of the chapters and essays are based on his blog so it’d felt like I’d read half the book before. It’s perhaps more interesting if you’ve not read those posts before.
Another Foundation novel that spans multiple planets. One of the things I like about Asimov’s writing is that the plot is engaging without getting bogged down in complexity (like the Culture series).
I re-read this in advance of a work trip. It remains my favorite approach for generating ideas amongst a team.
Another great book from the Foundation series by Asimov. Reading through these from this list has been a good order for things.
Very thorough look at the role architecture and urban design played in the Soviet Union. The chapters are oriented around particular themes (e.g. metros, high buildings, memorials). It’s a more academic read and the vast majority of it was information I had no idea about before reading.
