We are quickly coming up to the end of 2010. Most people are winding down for the holidays….perfect time to grab a few good books during the down time.
Below are some books that I think would be perfect reading for everyone in IT, IT Leadership roles and any/all CIO’s. Heck…most would be good reading for anyone.
Some are IT / CIO related. Some have to do with Social Media while others are marketing related. A few others are provided as a way to make us all think.
