"Microsoft Secrets" Authors: Michael A. Cusumano Richard W. Selby, The book "Microsoft Secrets" is about software development, this is one of the few good software engineering books, and it's not about the Microsoft story or Microsoft personalities, except when these things affect the development model. The book "Microsoft Secrets" is very useful to people interested in the design and implementation of large software. The authors Cusumano & Selby described the Microsoft's development process and it's internal facts in a very organized way.

I selected this because I have a great interest to learn various processes or strategies that the successful companies follow. I had also read the book "The Road Ahead" by Bill Gates in which, I knew very internal thoughts of Bill Gates and his thinking of to Attack the future, and I think he is as good as in business as he is in technical skills. I read "Microsoft Secrets" with full of interest because after reading some books about Microsoft. I wanted to learn about Microsoft's software development policies and strategies and their predictions about the future technology. And after reading this book I found every answer of my question and it is sure if the authors of this book give another book about Microsoft then I will certainly read that also.

List of some books, which i liked most to read,

Donald Norman's classic The Design of Everyday Things (also published under the name "The Psychology of Everyday Things") is one of the best books on "UI design", even though it talks more about doors and and refrigerators than computers. This was a groundbreaking work for its theory of affordances, which remains one of the most influential ideas in good design of everyday objects.
