No worries.

I deliberately read them in order, but having done so, apart from the odd reference to other books, there wasn’t really any need to.

I think Turning Pro was probably my favourite out of the three, followed closely by Do The Work.

I haven’t always been a particularly big reader, but I found these easy to manage as they are not really long books and are broken up into easy to manage sections, which, considering the subject matter, really helped. :slight_smile:

Thanks for this list of books. I like to read business literature. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I need to read classics (to Kill a Mockingbird) for my college project. I’m going to take some info from this resource as I’ve found it interesting and useful. But, in general, I need to write everything by myself. So, these books are a good addition to my list must-read.

I would also add at least:

The subtle art of not giving a f*ck

The intro story alone makes this book worth it. Very important when you go head first into a huge new venture (making games)
