What books are you reading?

(1/212) > >>

Thought it might be nice to have a thread where we could talk about what books we are reading and share thoughts and recommendations, etc.

This week I finally started going through Chris Bishop's "Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning":

So far i'm really liking it, though its more heavy on math and lacking in higher-level discussion than i would like.

Wisdom of the Psyche: Depth Psychology after Neuroscience
Ginette Paris


The Guards

"Beginning the Linux Command Line" by Sander van Vugt

Scott Granneman's "Linux Phrasebook" wet my appetite, and Sander's book gets under the hood without being overwhelming.

This week I'm rereading Gerald M. Weinberg's Secrets of Consulting: A Guide to Getting and Giving Advice Successfully for about the 20th time. Excellent commentary and insight into the oftentimes paradoxical world of expert advice. More than a book, it's a collection of usable tools.

Also highly recommended is another one of Gerry's books: An Introduction to General Systems Thinking. This is one of the true classics.

(Gerry has about a dozen books to his credit. These two titles are easily his best.)

They're all much too high brow. :)

Just got the latest Discworld novel - Unseen Academicals.
