Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Rate this book
Clear rating
It's going to be hard to read this book without rolling your eyes, it certainly was for me. Avoiding judgemental thoughts and value-judgements is not in my nature, and "When you X, I feel Y" statements have been so thoroughly mocked in popular cultur ...more

The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'm not going to say much about the "fable" format - a lot of these reviews seem not to be familiar with this particular style of book, and a reacting negatively to that. Yes, 75% of this book is a work of fiction with characters and dialogue that se ...more

Remote by David Heinemeier Hansson

Clear rating
This book was a little disappointing, not because it's bad but because it wasn't quite what I was looking for. The book advertises itself as a collection of solutions to problems people encounter when embracing remote work, but more than anything els ...more

Scala Design Patterns by John     Hunt

I found this book kind of a struggle to get through. It didn't read like a lot of other patterns books, in which it often feels like an expert is presenting patterns and you sort of wonder if the authors are the people who designed or came up with th ...more

Scala High Performance Programming by Vincent Theron
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book contains a lot of great information for Scala programmers, but it's kind of buried in a frustrating reading experience.

A lot of what you'll learn in this book is that many of the ways you use Scala normally are slow, I particularly enjoyed

Clean Architecture by Robert C. Martin

I really liked this book but also was a bit disappointed by it. I'm a huge fan of Robert Martin's work, I've read his previous books and I love Clean Code and The Clean Coder. Based on the title and artwork I had kind of assumed that this was just th ...more
