it was amazing
bookshelves: best-non-fiction

I happened onto this by a chance link from Mr Tyler Cowen, and I have to say I'm very happy I did.

This little gem of a text is littered with worthwhile thoughts and good suggestions on how to improve on one's research -- but there is absolutely no reason why the same cannot be applied in any other fields. It's the meaning behind Mr Hamming's words here rather than the topical application of them which is more important. He also highlights a number of very good practices along with a lot of (fun) anecdotal history that illustrates his points so much better than a drier delivery might have.

I would absolutely recommend this to everyone.
