The National CIO Review, in our interviews with leading CIOs, has compiled a list of recommended books worth sharing. But of course, we would love to hear your favorites as well. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with any books that you think should be at the top of the list.
"Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers." - Harry S. Truman
