Tech Book, The Phoenix Project
The Pheonix Project
Gene Kim, Kevin Behr, George Spafford
The Pheonix Project is one of those books that I always noted down as a “to read” at the conferences, but never got around reading it. Well, that’s rectified now. This work of fiction delivers an IT story many of us have lived through and suggests ways for improving your organization you might not have thought about.

Turing's Cathedral
Turing’s Cathedral
George Dyson
Recommended to me by a friend, Turing’s cathedral was a fantastic read. Excellent account of the early days of computers. I enjoyed all of it, especially the stories of women working programming the early machines. Some of it is hard to read and very technical, but nonetheless a fascinating read.

Domain Driven Design - Eric EvansDomain Driven Design
Eric Evans
One for software developers. Domain Driven Design is not a new concept, but this is probably one of the most important reads if you haven’t heard about it yet. Through domain models, software developers are able to express rich functionality and translate it into a software implementation that truly serves the needs of its users. But despite its obvious importance, there are few practical resources that explain how to incorporate effective domain modeling into the software development process. This book helps to address that.
