Book Review: Facts Are Sacred: The power of data

Facts are Sacred: The power of dataFacts are Sacred: The power of data by Simon Rogers

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well written book that is stuffed with seemingly useless data until the author ties it altogether. The Guardian has always been at the forefront of data journalism and this book gives some insight to why that is. Quick read that is a must for any data junkie.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Great introduction into Personal Kanban and even Kanban in general. The author does a wonderful job walking you the history of Kanban and the strengths it has for your personal workflow. Even those that have never experienced Kanban can have a board up and running by the end of the book.

Book Review: Design Great Data Products

Designing Great Data ProductsDesigning Great Data Products by Jeremy Howard

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very quick read but the content was light and not that satisfying. Some decent high level stuff on the “Drive Train Approach” but overall I would only pick this up if you are looking for a quick read while your kids are playing at the park.
