Lifelong learning is the attitude of mind needed to remain competitive in the job market. You have to take personal responsibility to invest in your own growth in the same way companies invest in research and development. External training provides you with occasional feasts of information and snacking on articles is important but a regular diet of books must be the main food for your personal development. I have selected books here that I have found both interesting and useful. All the e-books are .pdf format and can be read with the free Adobe Acrobat reader or can be added to an iPad or Kindle library..(proportional)
