“You’re in a terrible spot. It’s too late for you to retreat but too soon to act. All you can do is witness. You’re in the miserable position of an infant who cannot return to the mother’s womb, but neither can he run around and act. All an infant can do is witness and listen to the stupendous tales of action being told to him. You are at that precise point now. You cannot go back to the womb of your old world, but you cannot act with power either. For you there is only witnessing acts of power and listening to tales of power.”
Carlos Castaneda

Tales of Power

The Inmates are Running the Asylum by Alan Cooper

n

A fun and inspiring book. A must read for anybody who is involved in the business of digital products – from websites, information systems, custom tailored software applications, hardware products driven by software – which, in our digital age, means practically everyone in business.

The book demonstrates in a simple and entertaining fashion – how software design effects our lives both as users and businesses who’s products are used by people. It offers interesting insights and perspectives on the manufacturing process of software, the people involved in it and their dispositions. You really need to appreciate the tremendous effect good design can have on lifestyle and business success.
