Superforecasting.. One of the best books of 2015 that focuses on the art of predicting and forecasting. It details how super forecasters do what they do best, how they can predict future events with high probability and teaches the reader how to come up with answers to questions that they would generally wouldn't know about. No magic here, it's all about the way you think and the way you break the problem into smaller pieces. Highly recommended.

"Smarter Than You Think" .. A good book about how technology  makes us think better than what people assume.. We assume that we forget a lot and technology made us less smart but it's the opposite. People read, write & collaborate much more than what they used to do in the past ... And generally became smarter

If you are into psychology & people behavior, you will love this book. It highlights how people behave through habits. It even shows how to build new habits and the power of doing so. Some people who lost their memory , and only have jelly fish memory, where able to do certain things in life just because of the habits they used to do

Scrum.. A great book on how to manage projects and tasks .. I believe it does save a lot of time and produces results earlier than the traditional way of managing projects.. It's not based on planning every point from the start, instead list all tasks .. Prioritize them based on importance and give them weights .. Give the team the freedom to choose which task to work on and give them the freedom of doing the details . Have weekly targets and review every morning what's done and what's next and how to do it faster ... Deadlines can't be known from day 1, it will be very clear as time passes and it's almost always faster than doing things the traditional way .. The book is full of real life examples and case studies .. Highly recommended

Nice book, talks about how big companies with good management fail, just because they didn't see the future coming .. And how new products replace old ones .. Big companies can't simply react to new products because all of its customers are still buying.. It's a true dilemma .. And the book discusses how to overcome this issue by creating separate smaller companies to focus on these new products .. small profitable products matter more for small companies

His legacy is still powerful even after ~50 years of his death .. A real imaginative person who turned his dreams to reality no matter how hard they seem to be.
