The techie’s summer reading list

  1. 1. The techie’s summer reading list When you hit the beach with the kids this summer, leave the laptop at home. Take your e-reader instead, load it with these five books, and return to work with new energy for taking on the challenges of the fall.

  2. 2. The Tinkerers Have the creativity of a tinkerer inside you? Gain inspiration from the tales of well-known tinkerers like Benjamin Franklin, and less well-known modern inventors, and learn how to apply your creativity to approach problems in new ways.
  3. 3. The Power of Why CBC business journalist Amanda Lang looks at the connection between innovation and productivity, and why, instead of focusing on working smarter, we need to ask that simple question that was so natural to us when we were children: why?
  4. 4. Social Business By Design If your bosses aren’t already talking to you about a social strategy, they will be soon. This book shows how to choose and implement a social business strategy and maximize its impact, with real-life examples from technology vendors such as IBM and SAP.
  5. 5. Lean In: Women, Work, And The Will To Lead Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s book is caulk full of advice for women looking to succeed in male-dominated industries such as information technology, but her advice about seizing opportunities and stepping up to the plate is valuable to both genders.
  6. 6. The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia Enough with the serious books – it’s summer. Read up on the history of The Legend of Zelda franchise with never-before-seen concept art, the full history of Hyrule, the official chronology of the games, and more. Also includes an exclusive comic by The Legend of Zelda manga creator Akira Himekawa.
