There are two little books by Giovanni Jervis that every student, programmer, manager, should read.
These are the books:
- Giovanni Jervis, “Contro il relativismo” (Against Relativism) – Useful for understanding the concept of personal responsibility and diffusing situations where it would be convenient to dump responsibilities onto others;
- Giovanni Jervis, “Pensare dritto, pensare storto” (Straight Thinking, Crooked Thinking) – Useful to observe errors in thinking.
Even though the author is well-known internationally, in a cursory internet search these books seem to have only been published in Italian. If anyone knows anything more, please let me know.
Enjoy the read!
