Having polled some of my erudite friends and colleagues as well as having finished some noteworthy books these last several months, I developed a book list that may help with your holiday shopping (even if it’s for yourself).
In preparing this list, I thought it might be useful to include relevant links to other content you may find worthwhile — related to the book and/or the author. In addition, you may want to consult two previous posts that have more recommendations, one from last year and one from 2011. Also, the recommended reading page of the Analytically Speaking webcast series (now in its fourth year) is updated regularly. Several subject matter experts featured in this webcast series — many of whom are authors themselves — also share books they recommend.
And there are many more coming out early next year that promise to be good reads — a few we can anticipate: Truth or Truthiness: Distinguishing Fact from Fiction by Learning to Think Like a Data Scientist, by Howard Wainer, and The Age of Em: Work, Love and Life when Robots Rule the Earth, by Robin Hanson.
If you have more recommendations, please add them in the comments section. Happy reading!
