With a deadline for this afternoon I cannot spend a lot of time describing each book... yet I want to push myself to communicate some of the mind-opening good reads I came across recently. Most are not new books, and probably you will recognise them.
Without further introduction, here's a list of books about maths, with a twist:
Godel, Escher, Bach: and eternal golden braid by D. Hofstadter
The_Emperor's New Mind by Roger Penrose
In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations That Changed the World by Ian Stewart
Introducing Chaos, a graphic guide
Art and Physics by Leonard Shlain
Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension by Matt Parker
So, these are some of my current and past reads. Have you read them? Any recommendations down these lines?
In future entries I will explore books about design and programming, creative code, artificial intelligence and some of the books that are relevant to my current role as consultant, dealing with business models, process mapping, implementation patterns and Change Management.
If you have followed this blog from a while back you may be asking: Did I abandon BIM altogether? Well no, I just turned my interest to the reasons behind the use of technology (rather than my hands-on "previous life") and I am now helping major Architectural and Engineering companies navigate the tides of BIM, through maturity assessments, implementation programs and corporate initiatives.
