Christmas reindeerIt’s nearly Christmas! Can you tell we’re excited?We’re really looking forward to catching up on some holiday reading over the Christmas break. Here are some of the books we’re most excited about.

Sam will be reading Lean Analytics by Alistair Cross and Benjamin Yoskovitz, a book about how best to use data to build start-ups. Sam will also be checking out Networks, Crowds, and Markets:Reasoning About a Highly Connected World  by John Kleinberg and David Easley about the growth of networks.

Ray will be browsing through A Map of the World According to Illustrators & Storytellers by Antonis Antoniou, a coffee table style book of fabulous maps from talented designers around the world. Other titles on Ray’s reading list include Change by Design by Tim Brown, the CEO of IDEA on design thinking and The Laws of Simplicity by John Maeda.

I am keen to finally sit down with Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow which looks at how we make decisions.

Bring on the books.
