Recommended Books The Inmates are Running the Asylum This book argues that, business executives are simply not the ones in control of the high-tech industry and they have inadvertently put programmers and engineers in charge, leading to products and processes that waste huge amounts of money, squander customer loyalty, and erode competitive advantage.
