I enjoyed this book so much, that I’m listening to it a second time: “To Sell Is Human” by Daniel H. Pink.

This book is not directly related to Computer Science, but, I hope that it will help me write better blogs and create better slide decks and think more deeply about the atomic units of computering.

I think that the “5 Whys” technique described by Pink is related to “First Principles Thinking” , used by Elon Musk, and, to me, leads to a better understanding of Computer Science.
