Albert Wenger, a venture capitalist and author of World After Capital, invited his (sizeable) blog readership to suggest some books he should read over his Christmas and New Year’s break. The results are interesting, as there’s a mix of technical, business, and more discursive writing.
The ones that stood out for me were:
- Big Gods : how religion transformed cooperation and conflict by Ara Norenzayan
- Prosperity Without Growth : economics for a finite planet by Tim Jackson
- An Everyone Culture : becoming a deliberately developmental organization by Robert Kegan, Lisa Laskow Lahey, and Matthew L Miller
Former Mozilla colleague John O’Duinn has just sent out Update #14 of his Leading Distributed Teams ebook, so I’m looking forward to reading that soon, too!
