For book forty one of 2015, I enjoyed the book The $ 100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future.
An impressively good book, The $ 100 Startup separates itself and delivers what people really want vice what they need. To think about the actual desired outcome vice the piecemeal delivery which fails both customer and entrepreneur.
Follow your passion (smartly) and make sure you keep those costs low (smart frugality) are some of the extremely important keys the author, Chris Guillebeau, delivers in The $ 100 Startup and delivers well.
I really enjoyed hearing Chris’ perspective, ideas, and wisdom in The $ 100 Startup and absolutely recommend this book!
For book forty of 2015, I enjoyed the book Dataclysm.
I found the most interesting points of this book to be the data sets the author used from OkCupid.
The book brings up some very interesting points about the building data trend, the number of likes and shares of a website or posting, and the demographic data sets and how they break out in different sexes and races in the OkCupid data sets, is extremely interesting.
This was a very interesting and revealing read into what specific data sets can be used for and reveal.
Definitely a recommended read!
For book thirty nine of 2015, I enjoyed The Little Black Book of Innovation.
The Little Black Book of Innovation was a great book that opens a bunch of additional innovation roads. This could really be used to teach innovation. It highlights and provides a laundry list of some of histories best innovators, provides the names of the best books they’ve authored, and then goes further to provide the “Innovation for Dummies” summary of what the main principles of that specific innovator.
An example of these specific innovators that The Little Black Book of Innovation covers, was Thomas Edison. His main innovation theme is summarized by one of his most famous quotes, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety nine percent perspiration.” The author of The Little Black Book of Innovation covers each of his chosen innovators like this, and thus makes this book an exceptional innovation resources.
Great read and excellent Innovation reference book!
