I’m currently back on a reading kick (this seems to happen in waves, rather then an ongoing organic process), and I’ve just finished or am almost done a couple of really good books.
Rework – by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson of 37Signals . An amazing and detailed look at how to approach your work with an emphasis on creativity, corporate culture, and a proper balance. A must read for anyone, entrepreneur, or president of a large business.
Ignore Everybody – by Hugh MacLeod. This book is a great compliment to Rework and focuses on the need for personal creativity and the buckling down to create. This is a super quick read, and the book is interjected with MacLeod’s signature “cartoons drawn on the back of business cards” illustrations.
Lastly, I’m in the middle of reading Drive – by Daniel Pink. It ties together the previous two books in an uncanner manner. I’ll post my full thoughts once I’m done reading, but its quickly becoming one of my favorites for 2010.
