Console_Wars                       Creativity Inc.

Just when you don’t think you can add another book to your pile on the nightstand, Book Riot contributors share the best books of 2014 so far. Two non-fiction, business-related  titles are:

Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that defined a Generation, by Blake J. Harris – “Console Wars is the story behind the “battle” for supremacy between Sega, the quirky underdog, and Nintendo, the establishment, during the early 1990s.”

Creativity Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration, by Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace – “Catmull was one of the handful of people who made Pixar what it is: the most consistently commercially and critically successful film studio of our time.”

It is worthwhile to read the entire list of titles (mostly fiction) and the elegant descriptions. Here is a sampling:

All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr

Everything I Never Told You, by Celeste Ng

The Martian, by Andy Weir

Robot Uprisings, edited by Daniel H. Wilson and John Joseph Adams
