We're always looking for great books to bend our thinking, change our view, and give us more tools in the toolbox. Without reading, at least every so often we be stuck. While every book and every topic doesn't fit all situations, having those extra tools, ideas and approaches are so important and certainly sets us apart.
Ask around. We found this isn't a practice most leaders, consultants, coaches, nor facilitators do. We feel strongly that new ideas, reading up constantly keeps us thinking and rethinking -- without it, we're missing out.
While we're not fan of certificates and certifications - those expect a certain way of working and by extension, how to think and approach problems. We strive to have a wide variety of topics, and not always related to Product, Culture and Code. Below are some of those books we've found interesting, largely useful, beyond insightful, or just plain mind bending.

Another one of my absolute favorite books, this book talks about 'surprises' that had never happened before or never happened in a certain way. The title plays on the fact that a black swan didn't exist ...until one was seen for the first time.
Total brain breaker here and another one of my favorite books. Bends and twists your way of thinking and made me question a lot of assumptions - it drove me to a different level of understanding too. It's a slow read and it made me think, a LOT.
