James Igoe's Reviews > Godel's Proof

Godel's ProofGodel's Proof by Ernest Nagel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting and not terribly written but in a few areas highly repetitive. My background is not deeply mathematical, so maybe I was missing a subtlety here and there, but it seemed to be stating the same meanings over and over, although the bulk of the book was engaging and thought-provoking for someone 'mathy' like myself...

James Igoe's Reviews > Thinking Architecturally

Thinking ArchitecturallyThinking Architecturally by Nathaniel Schutta
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An overview of architectural decisions, the politics and persuasion involved, and the needs to balance competing measures and attributes. A fairly easy read, but full of great suggestions, and, for many, reminders of how to handle being a senior developer or architect.
