Some book recommendations for the rainy weekend

Recently I’ve found the time to read some very interesting books that I can really recommend – both from an entertaining as well as from a knowledge perspective:

<td>
  <h2>
    <a href="http://www.amazon.de/Lean-Startup-Innovation-Successful-Businesses/dp/0670921602/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Lean Startup</a>
  </h2>
  
  <p>
    I think I don’t have to write much about this book. Everybody interested in getting to know the lean principle should definitely read this.</td> </tr> 
    
    <tr>
      <td>
        <h2>
          <a href="http://www.amazon.de/Building-Microservices-Sam-Newman/dp/1491950358/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Building Microservices</a>
        </h2>
        
        <p>
          As microservices seems to be a trending topic these days understanding the idea and concept behind them was very interesting (though I do not think they are suitable for every case).</td> 
          
          <td style="padding-right: 10px;">
          </td></tr> 
          
          <tr>
            <td style="padding-right: 10px;">
              <a href="http://www.amazon.de/Clean-Code-Handbook-Software-Craftsmanship/dp/0132350882" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><iframe style="max-width: 100%;" src="https://lesen.amazon.de/kp/card?asin=B001GSTOAM&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_5V4FBbN82S28R&hideBuy=true&hideShare=true" width="212" height="362" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></a>
            </td>
            
            <td>
              <h2>
                <a href="http://www.amazon.de/Clean-Code-Handbook-Software-Craftsmanship/dp/0132350882" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship</a>
              </h2>
              
              <p>
                Also a classic which I did not have the chance to read until now. Although with lots of Java sample code the book presents the concepts and patterns very hands-on and can easily be comprehended.</td> </tr> 
                
                <tr>
                  <td>

                      Watching a <a href="http://www.ted.com/talks/jason_fried_why_work_doesn_t_happen_at_work" target="_blank" rel="noopener">TED talk of “Why work doesn’t happen at work</a> by Jason Fried lately I knew I had to read his book. Very recommendable and hopefully all the old-school enterprises will read it too 😉</td>

                            Very interesting German book with lots of useful case studies about ensuring quality in real-life projects from the creator of PHPUnit.</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
