Book Review: The TCS Story

Written by former CEO of TCS, this book describes history of TCS in very lucid manner. The author also discusses various initiatives taken by TCS to become top 10 by 2010. He also shares his thoughts about India's future. In certain sense, this book is also an autobiography of the author since he has shared important happenings of his life in this book. What I liked the most is appendix 1 in which his colleagues have shared what they think of the author. I strongly recommend this book to every IT professional.

Book Review: 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know

This is somewhat unique book since it presents collective wisdom from more than four dozen architects. Each "thing" is presented in exactly two pages. This book is also available online but still reading it in paper book format is really more effective. I would recommend this book to both aspiring and experienced software architects.
