Books Read in July 2011

Weinberg on Writing: The Fieldstone Method by Gerald M. Weinberg

A reread for me, but just as refreshing and interesting the second time around. I haven't mastered the philosophy of collecting bits over time to build better writing, but I'm inclined to give it another try.

The Knowing-Doing Gap by Jeffery Pfeffer and Robert Sutton

Good. Very corporate focused. Not much for an individual. Will keep it for the future though.

Customers for Life by Carl Sewell and Paul B. Brown

I enjoyed the stories from this highly successful car dealer. The principles were familiar, of course, but hearing them couched in real examples always adds a new wrinkle.

Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko

I read it through all the way, although that's not quite the best way to go about it. I should read one section at a time and use and learn. This wonderful collection of innovation/creativity techniques is definitely not leaving my bookshelf.

I'm quite sure I lost a book or two this month, since I waited so long to write them up, which is also why my notes are so terse. Ah, well.
