Product Leadership by Richard  Banfield
Rate this book
Clear rating
I struggled to get into this. It's very high-level/top-down. More about the strategy of building a product team than about the practical nuts and bolts of doing the job. There's a lot about building a team and interviewing people, and lots of intervi ...more

With by Skye Jethani

This book scratched an itch I've had for a long time. A friend referred to it as "activity over intimacy," and Jethani captures this by identifying four ways of relating to God, and why they're flawed:

Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life by Jason Hanson
Rate this book
Clear rating
I don't know what to do with this book. I read it, but it's tough to take it seriously in places.

The author is ex-CIA. He runs a "school" for spy survival, or something. He trains people in spy skills. He's very...enthusiastic. He claims to carry two

The Bible Book by D.K. Publishing

This a lovely, coffee table-ish book about the Bible.

It's a sequential tour through the Bible, story by story. Every story you've ever heard from the Bible -- they're all in here. The chapter header explains the characters in the story, the themes, t

Super Crunchers by Ian Ayres

Clear rating
Throughout this book, the author keeps trying to make the phrase "Super Cruncher/ing/ed" happen. I kept thinking back to the character in Mean Girls that said, "Gretchen, stop trying to make 'fetch' happen. It's not going to happen."

It gets distracti

Escape Velocity by Geoffrey A. Moore
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a classic business strategy book by the author of "Crossing the Chasm." It's not really practical advice -- the author concedes that it's a "framework of frameworks" that help you think about your company's future.

Sandworm by Andy Greenberg
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a story of a bunch of hacks, which the author has strung together. The claim is that NotPetya, WannaCry, the Korean Olympic hack, etc. were all the work of the same organization -- a Russian GRU hacking group nicknamed "Sandworm" (the name ca ...more

Blue Ocean Strategy by W. Chan Kim

This book is meant to describe a new approach/strategy to marketing.

The "blue ocean" strategy means that you find some aspect of your market that no one is doing, and try to dominate that, rather than fighting it out with other vendors in your space

Artificial Intelligence by Melanie  Mitchell
Rate this book
Clear rating
A good primer to the field. Hits the right depth between technical and theoretical layers, including quite a bit on ethics.

My takeaway is that we're really, really far away from anything approaching what we think artificial intelligence was going to
