Living on the Fault Line



Living on the Fault Line by Geoffrey A. Moore.

Bought this after lunch with Teyu. Geoffrey Moore is a well-known name in the valley and to anyone involved in high-tech venture. Particularly, I am most impressed with his previous two book, Crossing the Chasm and Inside the Tornado. I look forward to some quiet time to read this book.

The New Manager’s Handbook



The New Manager’s Handbook by Morey Stettner

HR gave this book to every manager so I got a copy too. It helps the book is small (I finish the book over lunch). I suppose it is useful for a new manager but not particularly interesting to me. Not a book I would recommend.

Build to Last by James C. Collins & Jerry I. Porras

First, Break all the Rules by Marcus Buckingham & Curt Coffman

Bought these two books on the way to lunch and they are on sales at Suntec Convention Center (at one of its seminar).

Teyu have been recommending to me “Build to Last” for quite sometime so it is an excuse for me to buy more books.

I actually bought and read the book “First, Break all the Rules” earlier this year. I love it very much and have been lending it around and have no idea where it is now.

The Innovation Paradox, the success of failure, the failure of success by Richard Farson and Ralph Keyes.

Formally known as “Whoever makes the most mistakes wins”, I bought this book on the way back from Vienna IETF.
