Appendix B. Further Reading

These books have shaped my work as a software developer, manager, architecture leader, chief architect, CIO, and CTO over many years.  They have all, in various and sometimes tangential ways, informed the ideas in this book—sometimes as inspiration, sometimes as intellectual sparring partner. The ideas in this book are made possible by these wonderful works, particularly those in Philosophy. I encourage you to follow your curiosity with this list.
