Book I'm Reading

An Elegant Puzzle: Systems of Engineering Management by Will Larson

I ordered this book when it came out around Memorial Day. Finally got around to cracking it yesterday and, my goodness. This is my day-to-day, my week-to-week and all my years as an engineering leader. All rolled into reasonable frameworks that make even the trickiest problems appear straightforward to solve.

If you've read Will Larson's blog, the book affects a similar tone of authority and prescription, which I could see putting some readers off. I personally find it refreshing given the author's depth of experience in the subject matter.
