Despite still recovering from the infatuation about Cognitive Surplus and The Cluetrain Manifesto (the latest magnificent books I’ve read and of which I will try to write and publish “reviews” during the weekend… no promises though), I already took the challenging task of deciding what to read next.
I turned to my smart and interesting Twitter (my favourite serendipity “engine”) network to ask for advice, and got the following recommendations:
» Samuel Driessen (@driessen), who is currently re-reading The Cluetrain advised “The Social Life of Information” and “The Fifth Discipline”, “great, older books, that give a deeper understanding of ‘social’ (social media, social business, social learning, etc)”, he stated. He also mentioned “The Living Company” though he still didn’t have the opportunity to read it.
» Oscar Berg (@oscarberg) chose The Knowing-Doing Gap, Switch (actually I’m currently half-way through this book… it’s good), Making Ideas Happen, Linchpin (have read it and love it!) and The Information
» Gianfranco Chicco (@gchicco) recommended Disrupt by Luke Williams (@LukeGWilliams) and Luke was kind enough to tweet a link to the first chapter: http://www.disruptive-thinking.com/media/Disrupt_Intro.pdf
» Andrew Woolfson (@woolfiex50) hinted on The Lost Thing
Thank you all for the recommendations!
Curiously, having recently started to follow Maria Popova on Twitter (@brainpicker), I stumbled upon her Summer Reading List which includes The Information (pretty curious about that one I have to say).
Still not sure which ones I will buy (will factor in the size of the book given I’ll be probably travelling with them).
I’ll keep you posted
