10 Books & blogs to read - The effective engineer – Conclusion

itscoderslife profile image Coder Originally published at on ・3 min read

I started reading this book “The Effective Engineer” by Edmond Lau. I noted down these points while reading so that it can be kind of cheat-sheet for myself and others too. I strongly recommend buying the book and reading it at-least once.

The book is divided into 3 parts and my idea here is to write 3 blog posts one for each. So here is the second part of the series. You can read the Part-I here and Part-II here.

For Part-III, there are 3 parts. You can get a summary of first chapter and second chapter and third chapter of Part-III here.

This is concluding post of this series listing best books and blogs that can be helpful for effective engineers
