Technology Book Favorites:
From a technical standpoint, my recent favorite would be “Windows Server2008 Hyper-V R2: Insiders Guide to Microsoft’s Hypervisor” by John Kelbley and Mike Sterling. They give a hands-on view of Hyper-V with more substance and less fluff, with direct insight on using System Center Virtual Machine Manager, Data Protection Manager, Operations Manager and PowerShell. It’s a good technical read that you can use to gain practical knowledge.
For something more inspiring, “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch is a favorite. Randy was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon who passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. In the book, he talks about all the folks who helped him achieve his childhood dreams, as well as his accomplishments and lessons he hopes to pass on — all with great dignity in his last months. This book reminds me to step away from the keyboard every once in a while and think about what is really important.
