I would definitely recommend James Caan and Alan Suger, although the first part of Sugars book is better than the second.

James Caans was brilliant.

Given Duncan Bannatynes a try but so far not really finding it as good as the other two.

James Caan's book is well worth a read and sometimes is left out of these kinda things!

P.S. Just to say it is James Caan's original book and not the silly one about getting a job.

James Caan the Autobiography was pretty good, ended a bit sharply though !

My 2 best books

Hi everyone.

Two of the best books I have read are
Rework - By the guys @ 37 signals. Its a great read to give you absolute clarity on great ways of working.

The Lean Startup - Eric Ries. Its a bit hyped up in the tech startup world at the moment but it helps set some excellent principles for learning about your business as you grow it and not wasting any time.

Both have been really important for me building my business Dattch. We are shortlisted for this months Grand Ideas - so if you like the idea (we are second from the left on the bottom) please vote!! http://www.shell-livewire.org/awards...ideas-awards#2

If you're a developer, then you should seriously consider reading this small book very carefully:

More "me too!" moments per page than any other!!

I especially like the bit about renting a career (you get paid only when you're doing it) vs owning a business.

Chris.

My favorite is "A Beautiful Mind". It is a biography based on a mathematician John Nash. Really inspiring story.

Most work by Seth Godin is worth a read, though probably more for insight than for inspiration. He's brilliant at underlining all the obvious things we hadn't noticed.

A very good read, mentioned here already is Rework by the guys who make Basecamp. Really easy to pick up and put down.

A lot of what I've read, am reading and want to read can be found on my my LinkedIn Reading List

Hi everyone,

To throw some ideas into the mix - has anyone read "the first 90 days"? It's all about transitions.

Or "Shift - the future of work" - I haven't read this yet but would be interested to hear from anyone who has.

Cheers,
Sam
