New book in My Library - Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code (2nd Edition) by Martin Fowler

Being a huge fan of refactoring I couldn’t miss 2nd edition of Martin Fowler’s “Refactoring” from my radar. Today this wonderful book took its deserved place on my bookshelf for read books.,204,203,200_.jpg

It was announced in the mid of Mar 2018 with 2 main features - less class-oriented and JavaScript as a language for examples. I would say nothing if I say that I was surprised and intrigued. I think Martin did very right decision here - he has decided to show The World how 20-years-old rules still keep doing their great job.

I’m done with this fascinating reading and would be glad to share some feedback and thoughts about this book.

In the beginning of March I’ve finished reading one of the books that I wanted to get a plenty of time - it is “Building Microservices: Designing Fine-Grained Systems” by Sam Newman.

New book in My Library - Discourses on Livy by Nicolo Machiavelli

The way “Discources on Livy” has got in my hands is fairly simple - I was very inspired by “The Prince” by Nicolo Machiavelli and decided to get his #2 (according to people reviews) book.

Last weekend I’ve finished its reading and now I would like to share sort of its summary and what this book meant to me personally.


New book in My Library - The Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli

I’ve settled a new inhabitant to my bookshelf - it is “The Prince” by Nicolo Machiavelli.

This book was recommended to me by my friend Vadim Tikanov as a “Must Read” thing few years ago, but while I’ve been reading more technical things that time this recommendation was left without proper attention.,204,203,200_.jpg

Once, walking through a book shop and trying to pick something for my older daughter, my sight has stopped on a familiar title - The Prince, and familiar author - Nicolo Machiavelli…

I’ve finished its reading on last weekend, so, as usual, I would like to share my impression on this book.

Finally, I stopped my choice on Richard Branson’s “Screw It, Let’s Do It”.

My library has been replenished with another one great book. It is “From Third World to First: The Singapore Story - 1965-2000” by Lee Kuan Yew.,204,203,200_.jpg

This book came to my hands as a part of initiative of discovering eastern culture and did its job pretty well.


New book in My Library - Kaizen by Masaaki Imai

Few days ago I have finished reading one really great book - “Kaizen: The Key To Japan’s Competitive Success” by Masaaki Imai.,204,203,200_.jpg

It was one that I was super interested in. Some time ago I have realized that I know to less about eastern culture of management. Most of my knowledge and experience was related to work with American companies, so I have decided to get this corrected and bought few books about eastern management principles and culture - “Kaizen” was one of those.
