Reading List

This list is an up to date summary of what I have in my library related to work – I’m always reading, always have a book or two with me especially when I’m traveling.

Often, I’m asked by clients and coworkers to provide a list of books and I generally provide the list below. In some cases I provide a list based on their role and or objectives (Manager, Architect, Developer, Designer, Business Analyst etc…).
