Introduction to the Sources category

Categories: Sources

This category contains posts that endorse or discuss sources of information, such as: books, articles, bulletins, podcasts, etc.

Be warned that like most other people, I read less than I want to, and I do not endorse sources (such as books) unless I think they deserve it. Thus, you probably do not want to restrict your education to whatever is mentioned under this category.

Lastly, if you think you have a source to endorse, guest posts will be considered.

This is an untypical management book. Aside of the fact that it is very well written, it is full of insights that you can actually relate to and use. It makes sense, and unlike other management books that "make sense" because they preach obvious trivialities, this one brings up points that are truly insightful. more »

TED published an excellent talk: Why Privacy Matters, by Glenn Greenwald. Seldom do I call an online lecture "a must for all audience", but the TED lecture by Glenn Greenwald is worth such an enforcement. Glenn Greenwald is one of the key reporters who… more »

I finally got to read Bruce Schneier's new book: "Liars and Outliers". The book is pleasant to read, but truth be told, I was slightly, just slightly, disappointed. The book is written in Bruce's style, which I like and appreciate. Like all of his book… more »
