Less and more
[image credit: core77 ] I wish I was skilful enough to be a designer. In the meantime, i can just look at Dieter Rams and be inspired. His book, book, Less and More . The man is Mr Braun and his design ethos is simple, beautiful and elegant. Fortunately, not everyone designs this way which makes his...

If the 1st chapter of Speak Human is anything to go by, it promises to be a fine read. I suspect it’ll be similar in some ways to Seth Godin’s “Small is the new Big” but that’s not a bad thing as that too was a great book. In chapter 1 Eric Karjaluoto takes us through a story about Starbucks from birth...

And what do you do?
My upcoming flight to Seattle should afford me some time to check out my friend Katie Ledger’s book which was published last week. It’s all about portfolio careers and written in conjunction with Barrie Hopson. What is a portfolio career? You can check out the excellent accompanying blog to find...

I just bought this great new book called Trust Agents from Chris Brogan*. Why did I buy it? Because Chris asked me to…in fact he asked everyone to and normally I’d be turned off my such a blatant sales pitch but from someone who gives so much away for free every day, it’s easy to return the gesture and...

Every job is now temporary
My friend Katie Ledger has finished up her book and it’s coming soon – available for pre-order from Amazon . The book, co written with Barrie Hopson, covers the topic of portfolio careers. What? Whether out of choice or necessity, over one million people in the UK have more than two jobs. A 'portfolio...

Ignore Everybody: And 39 Other Keys to Creativity
Several people I know are publishing books this year and the first to cross my desk as a reviewers copy is Hugh MacLeod’s Ignore Everybody: And 39 Other Keys to Creativity . This book has hopefully prepared me well for the others as I found it’s very hard to objectively review a book that you...

Small Business Server God
My Microsoft blogging pal David Overton is a god when it comes to Small Business Server – there isn’t much he doesn’t know about this product. No surprise then that he has put this wisdom in to book format with Small Business Server 2008 – Installation, Migration, and Configuration. Perfect if you’re...

The Sex and Cash Theory
Ignore Everybody is the title of my pal Hugh MacLeod’s new book . I’m sorta surprised he didn’t get the publishers ready to roll it out at SXSW this week but I suppose that’s publishing for you. It takes time to cut down trees and such. You can get a bit of a head start on the book though with two PDF...

What Is Wisdom?
From people who really ought to know. I’d sort of decided I wasn’t going to buy this book but then Charlotte sent me a link to the video and right after Robert Redford I changed my mind. It’s now on my Christmas list as we’re officially in the blackout zone where I’m not allowed to buy anything...

Two Smarts Guys Do Ten Questions
A great conversation between two of my pals – in fact two of the smartest guys I know. If you haven’t read David’s book you should go get it (disclaimer – I was interviewed for the book Blue Monster gets several pages). If you want to know what happens in a post advertising, post media hype world...

You Need slide:ology
If you present at all in your job, you should get slide:ology . Even if you don’t it’s s great book that is beautifully presented (as you’d expect) and enormously practical. It’s backed up by a great website too with additional resources. O’Reilly kindly sent me a copy of this book for review and though...

Who Are Crowd Surfers?
Crowdsurfing from David Brain on Vimeo . Many of you reading this blog I reckon. Checkout the short video from David Brain about his forthcoming book, Crowd Surfing . Love the use of the Gladiator quote – very apt. Listen to me. Learn from me. I was not the best because I killed quickly. I was...

Free Book: Blue Planet Run
You may have heard of this book – I hadn’t and was surprised to see if being given away for free on Amazon. Why would you give away a good book for free? That becomes obvious when you check out the PDF and realise that the book itself is the only way you’re really going to see the magnificent photos...

The Blue Monster book club continues
The Blue Monster book club expanded last week with Niall Cook’s Enterprise 2.0 . This is the second book that I’m aware of that covers Blue Monster as a case study – in this case titled Humanizing Microsoft. Niall talks about the role Robert Scoble played until his departure in 2006 and the creation...

My chum David Brain is about release a book on the unsuspecting public and if it’s as good as the man in person or his blog, it promises to be a fine read. Crowd Surfing is available for pre-order now . What’s it all about? Welcome to the world of the crowd surfer: a world in which a new...

Mary Jo Foley on 'Microsoft 2.0'
Wow, I just found out from lilich and frankarr that Microsoft watcher Mary Jo Foley mentioned my blog when asked which Microsoft employee blogs she reads. I’m honoured! Todd Bishop has audio of his interview - Mary Jo Foley on 'Microsoft 2.0' where she talks about her book, Windows 7, SteveB, StevenSi...

| View | Upload your own Sadly I didn’t make it to Fuel last week but Ravi sent me a link to Tara's deck. Whoa....260 slides...she could get a job at Microsoft :) The embed above actually doesn't really do it justice so I'd recommend downloading the PDF version and grabbing a mouse with a scroll...

Personality Not Included
This brilliantly titled book arrived at Chez Clayton today. Personality Not Included is by Rohit Bahrgava and discussed the increasingly well travelled topic of company brands and how the era of mass communication is changing them (and us). As I always do when I get a new book like this, I flipped to...

Scoble Back On Form
Scoble back doing what he does best – helping people understand the changes new technologies are bringing to our world. All due respect to the dude but I wish he did more of this and less of the interviews which I never find time or inclination to watch. This is what he’s great at IMHO. This is Naked...

How To Think Like...
Several years ago I attended some course delivered by Nicholas Bate of Strategic Edge. If I’m brutally honest Nick and I didn’t hit it off during the first course. I was a petulant student but by the second course I really enjoyed listening and learning from him. We both moved on to new stuff but thanks...

Paul Arden RIP
I only came across Mr Arden’s work in the last year but even so this came as a shock. One of my favourite books is It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be and if you’ve not read it, now is a good time to as a mark of remembrance. It’s an inspiring book from a remarkable...
