Reading material

Things are generally a bit slower this time of the year so it nice to catch up on some reading. Here’s a list of titles I would recommend you spend some time going through.

 

Business

 

The E-Myth – Michael Gerber

 

This book helps you understand that you are not your business and that you need to look at it as a system.

 

The Millionaire Fastlane – M.J. DeMarco

 

Don’t get put off by the title, this book is an excellent read. It explains to you the realities of running a business and what is important in actually making money.

 

The Tipping Point – Malcolm Gladwell

 

Want to understand why social networking is so important to business, this book will help you understand why. You don’t need to be a prophet you just need to ‘network’ with one.

 

SharePoint

 

Mastering SharePoint Foundation 2010 – Callahan

 

One of the few books that focuses specifically on SharePoint Foundation. Still a great foundation for work with SharePoint Server but most wouldn’t think so. Know you know.

 

Professional SharePoint 2010 Administration – Todd Klindt

 

This book covers more of SharePoint 2010 Server and is a highly recommended for those looking to up skill to this product.

 

Strategy

 

The Art of War – Sun Tzu

 

One of the oldest books known to man and still as relevant today as it was the day it was written.

 

Fiction

 

Daemon – Daniel Suarez

 

If you like technology then I’m pretty sure you’ll love this book. There is a sequel but I think one is better.

 

You can find all the books I recommend over at:

 

http://amazon.ciaops.com

 

which if you buy from there gives me a few pennies commission. Also, don’t forget that all of these are available on the Kindle which I also highly recommend.
