Reading List

This page serves as a reminder to myself of the books that I have read. I try to read as much as I can (typically on the train or if I have spare time in an evening), although I would like to read much more than I do. The books I read extend over a range of topics, from software development to business to marketing and beyond, but I do not read fiction. The list below is not comprehensive.

I started the compilation of this list in May 2015, and will periodically update this blog post with new books as and when I read them.
