Accidental Book Recommendations

Whether Dave or George know it or not, they've made some really good book recommendations over the last few days. So good, I've decided to share them with the rest of the world.

I haven't read either of these books, but they are definitely on my Wish List.

Dave, George, I hope you don't mind me spreading around your wisdom.

Somehow Dave, our Marketing Guru at work, and I got on the topic of selling and he highly recommended the book The New Strategic Selling: The Unique Sales System Proven Successful by the World's Best Companies. I know, what a mouthful. He suggests that this is the ideal text to read if you are in the business of making enterprise level sales.

I'm passing on this recommendation not because I'm interested in leaping into sales (gosh, no), but because I think it would be handy for developers to understand what the sales forces do. Besides, when Dave recommends a book, it's got to be good.

George had The Principles of Beautiful Web Design sitting on his bookshelf, and I couldn't help but notice it. It's a colorful slim little volume that seems to be answering that age old question, how can geeks produce good looking web pages.

From the review on Slashdot, I get the sense that the book delivers on its promise. The book's microsite alone is impressive, and worth checking out.

If you are interested in sharpening your graphics skills, you should also check out the Non-Designers Design Book.

Thanks for tips guys. Anyone else out there who have a must read? Definitely let me know about it.
