My 5 most influential books

The most important bookshelf

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
Dan Brown

Communicating Design

 

2. Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide
Amy Sheun

3. Purple Cow
Seth Godin

4. Don’t make me think
Steve Krug

5. The Principles of Beautiful Web Design
