Trawling for reading material

Yep, time to stock up on some new books. I’m interested in:

  • Business (startups and the like)

  • Economics

  • Marketing

  • Technology. Classics, though, books about the latest this or that are less appealing these days, because the net simply has so much information available.

That’s certainly a broad range, but the reason I’m writing here, is that I’m looking for books other people like me considered a good read, and not just an idea I can glean from the wikipedia summary of the book.

Yoav seems to share some of my tastes, for instance.

Some of the books I’m considering:

  • Founders at Work, by one of Paul Graham’s collaborators. Looks interesting, but I’m a little bit dubious about the ‘lots of anecdotes’ format. Do you learn anything repeatable from it, or just motivational tales of yore?

  • Something from Guy Kawasaki – Rules for Revolutionaries?

  • Over 20 Years of High-Tech Marketing Disasters

  • Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability

What I’ve already read, and would recommend to others:
