5 Technology Books to Start Off Your Reading Habits
Reading is a skill.
A skill that helps better various other skills and increases the vast sea of knowledge we hold in our heads.
As an IEEE member/volunteer, most of us are either working professionals or student members. Either way, this community we are a part of, is made of highly self-motivated individuals, with a strong focus on career development. And what better way to better your career, than improving your knowledge.
Most successful people are avid readers. And even the ones who are not, definitely have a reading habit – if not books, then at least newspapers, news articles, blogs, financial reports, etc. For people not familiar with the territory of reading habits, it can be slightly daunting to start off. Thus, we compile here a suggestive list of 5 technology books, that should provide a good start.
The list has been compiled from the most popular technology books on Goodreads, the average ratings received and Amazon ratings, along with inputs from our web team here at R10.
In no particular order,
- The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson
- Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Max Tegmark
- Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions by Brian Christian & Tom Griffiths
- The Design of Everyday Things by Donald A. Norman
- Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel & Blake Masters
If you have a great book which you think should be on this list, please feel free to comment below so that others can know of it too. And the “member favourites” we might just release as a new suggested list with credits to you!
