Book Notes

This section started off as my own personal notes. After having countless conversations with other entrepreneurs in my friend group, meetups, and accelerator programs; I decided to post my notes online. Now, when I hear another head of an engineering team who needs advice, I can cite my book notes that has helped me overcome a similar situation.

For a more in depth reason on why I put my book notes online, check out this post.

I haven’t put my notes for every book on my site. If you are curious what else I’ve read here are some links below.
