I’ve been meaning to write a post about my beloved books. In the last four years I’ve really found a facination for books. Before that I may have read (cover to cover) two books in my entire life – even at school I avoided them.
Now days, however, I have to hold myself back (buying new books) – unless the deal (usually Amazon) is too hard to ignore. And of course Amazon doesn’t help that cause either. Their retail marketing precision is faultless. I get my weekly Amazon email with recommended books – a must-read email. The ease-of-purchase process is within touching distance – the one-click purchase option.
So I decided to take a look at my books and hightlight the 5 I thought have most influenced me and my career (and my life in some ways):
1. Communicating Design
2. Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide
3. Purple Cow
4. Don’t make me think
5. The Principles of Beautiful Web Design
