The Books for Digitalization

"If you're not lucky enough to meet people who feed you new ideas, you might find them at the library."
Dorothea Brande
Digitalization demands constant education. Reading the right books is the easiest and quickest form of this. Unfortunately, many books often only cover the advertised topic superficially and drag on unnecessarily.
To get an overview of a topic in a short time, I skim selected books and pick the essence from each. With Kindle Unlimited, I can borrow up to 10 books at a time from a huge selection.
The most popular books are usually not available for borrowing. If I want to check out certain books more closely, I check Blinkist first before buying. A Blink is a 15-minute summary that you can read or listen to via podcast.
On this page you will find my small but relevant selection of books that I consult again and again in my projects. It is the yield from well over 100 digital projects and the basis of my approach.
