Clear rating
This was full of great material. I only rate it as 3/5 because it really is little more than an appendix to The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. If you remove the redundant material, it almost could have literally been an appendix despite the slim size o ...more

New Dawn on Rocky Ridge by Roger Lea MacBride
Rate this book
Clear rating
I didn't enjoy this as much as others in the series, although it was still a mostly entertaining read. The first annoyance is that we're going through Rose's annoying teenager period. Quite intentionally, her attitude is annoying. While this is not i ...more

Clear rating
This book takes a different perspective than most books on feedback and tries to help the reader get better at taking feedback rather than giving it. This was valuable to me in two ways. First, I am terrible at taking feedback, and this book helped m ...more

The Principles of Product Development Flow by Donald G. Reinertsen
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was sometimes a frustrating read. The author wants this to be a dense reference resource rather than a long explanatory text. This is fine. I can pull out the internet to look up unfamiliar terms. However, I do think that Reinertsen's brevity hu ...more
