Home / 2 great books and one not so great

A good book grips you and forces you  to keep reading until you’re done. Steve Wozniak’s “iWoz” and Jessica Livingston’s “Founders at work” are such books.\ \ Wozniak’s book is inspirational for an engineer and shows how passion and hard work leads to creating great products and making lots of money.\ \ Livingston’s book is inspirational for an entrepreneur and shows how passion and hard work (sometimes) leads to creating great products and making lots of money.\ \ The book I was disappointed by is Scott Rosenberg’s “Dreaming in code”. I bought it because it promised to describe the behind-the-scenes story of Chandler, a project I was interested in. And the parts that did that - I liked. However, it also had large sections on tangential issues about the business of creating software that might be interesting to some but weren’t to me (mostly because I already knew about all that other stuff).
