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":
http://www.amazon.com/Pattern-Recognition-Learning-Information-Statistics/dp/0387310738



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 http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Linux-Command-Line-Sander/dp/1430218894/ref=sr_1_1/182-1397475-4247438?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255751554&sr=8-1

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.
