Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming ProductsHooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products
The book, 'Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products’ is an effective book for people who want to learn the art of selling products.

The book is authored by Nir Eyal and was published by Portfolio Penguin publication in 2014. This book has received positive responses across the world and was in the list of Wall Street Journal business 'best selling' books. Plus, it won the award of 'best marketing book of the year' given by 1800CEOREAD. The market is full of products that have similar qualities. However, very few of these products grow successful over the years. What makes these products successful? This book tries to analyze this question and looks to find the answer using definitive research and a wide range of methodologies. This book also talks about the 'Hook Model’ that involves a four step process focusing on consumer behaviour. This model talks about the reasons why few products catch our attention amongst an extensive range and the various brand strategies which work. Then, there is the concept of 'hook cycles’ which deals with bringing people back to the products again and again even without the use of regular advertising. After a careful analysis, the author gives various techniques which enable the readers to create a system which allows them to form these hook cycles. The basic idea of these systems is to reach the heart of consumers and understand their likes and dislikes. About the author Nir Eyal is an Israeli entrepreneur and author who focuses on the subject of human psychology. He writes consistently for publications like TechCrunch, Psychology Today and Forbes.

Lost and FounderLost and Founder
Everyone knows how a start-up story is supposed to go, a young, brilliant entrepreneur has an cool idea, drops out of college, defies the doubters, overcomes all odds, makes billions and becomes the envy of the technology world. This is not that story.Rand Fishkin, the founder and former CEO of Moz, is one of the world's leading experts on seo. Moz is now a dollar 45 million a year business, but Fishkin's business and reputation took 15 years to grow and his start-up began not in a Harvard dorm room but as a mother-and-son family business that fell deeply into debt. Now fishkin pulls back the curtain on tech start-up mythology, exposing the ups and downs of start-up life that most ceos would rather keep secret. For instance, a minimally viable product can be destructive if you launch at the wrong moment. Growth hacking may be the buzzword du jour, but initiatives to your business can fizzle quickly. Revenue and profitability won't protect you from layoffs. and venture capital always comes with strings attached.In lost and founder Fishkin reveals the mostly awful, sometimes awesome truth about start-up culture with the transparency and humour that his hundreds of thousands of blog readers have come to love. Fishkin's hard-won lessons are applicable to any kind of business environment and this book can help solve your problems and make you feel less alone for having them.

This is the first textbook on pattern recognition to present the Bayesian viewpoint. The book presents approximate inference algorithms that permit fast approximate answers in situations where exact answers are not feasible. It uses graphical models to describe probability distributions when no other books apply graphical models to machine learning. No previous knowledge of pattern recognition or machine learning concepts is assumed. Familiarity with multivariate calculus and basic linear algebra is required, and some experience in the use of probabilities would be helpful though not essential as the book includes a self-contained introduction to basic probability theory.

Alibaba: The House that Jack Ma BuiltAlibaba: The House that Jack Ma Built
In just a decade and half Jack Ma, a man who rose from humble beginnings and started his career as an English teacher, founded and built Alibaba into the second largest Internet company in the world. The company’s $25 billion IPO in 2014 was the world’s largest, valuing the company more than Facebook or Coca Cola. Alibaba today runs the e-commerce services that hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers depend on every day, providing employment and income for tens of millions more. A Rockefeller of his age, Jack has become an icon for the country’s booming private sector and as the face of the new, consumerist China is courted by heads of state and CEOs from around the world. Granted unprecedented access to a wealth of new material including exclusive interviews, Clark draws on his own first-hand experience of key figures integral to Alibaba’s rise to create an authoritative, compelling narrative account of how Alibaba and its charismatic creator have transformed the way that Chinese exercise their new found economic freedom, inspiring entrepreneurs around the world and infuriating others, turning the tables on the Silicon Valley giants who have tried to stand in his way. Duncan explores vital questions about the company’s past, present and future: How, from such unremarkable origins, did Jack Ma build Alibaba? What explains his relentless drive and his ability to outsmart his competitors? With over 80% of China’s e-commerce market, how long can the company hope to maintain its dominance? As the company sets its sights on the country’s financial and media markets, are there limits to Alibaba’s ambitions, or will the Chinese government act to curtail them? And as it set up shop from LA and San Francisco to Seattle, how will Alibaba grow its presence and investments in the US and other international markets? Clark tells Alibaba’s tale within the wider story of China’s economic explosion—the rise of the private sector and the expansion of Internet usage—that haver powered the country’s rise to become the world’s second largest economy and largest Internet population, twice the size of the United States. He also explores the political and social context for these momentous changes. An expert insider with unrivalled connections, Clark has a deep understanding of Chinese business mind-set. He illuminates an unlikely corporate titan as never before and examines the key role his company has played in transforming China while increasing its power and presence worldwide.

The Design of Everyday ThingsThe Design of Everyday Things
The ultimate guide to human-centered design Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious-even liberating-book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology. The problems range from ambiguous and hidden controls to arbitrary relationships between controls and functions, coupled with a lack of feedback or other assistance and unreasonable demands on memorization.The Design of Everyday Things shows that good, usable design is possible. The rules are simple: make things visible, exploit natural relationships that couple function and control, and make intelligent use of constraints. The goal: guide the user effortlessly to the right action on the right control at the right time.The Design of Everyday Things is a powerful primer on how--and why--some products satisfy customers while others only frustrate them.

An insider's account of Apple's creative process during the golden years of Steve Jobs. 'If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work in a hotbed of innovation, you’ll enjoy this inside view of life at Apple. Ken Kocienda pioneered the iPhone keyboard, and this book gives a play-by-play of their creative process –from generating ideas to doing a demo for Steve Jobs.' Adam Grant Hundreds of millions of people use Apple products every day; several thousand work on Apple's campus in Cupertino, California; but only a handful sit at the drawing board. Creative Selection recounts the life of one of the few who worked behind the scenes, a highly-respected software engineer who worked in the final years of the Steve Jobs era, the Golden Age of Apple. Ken Kocienda offers an inside look at Apple’s creative process. For fifteen years, he was on the ground floor of the company as a specialist, directly responsible for experimenting with novel user interface concepts and writing powerful, easy-to-use software for products including the iPhone, the iPad and the Safari web browser. His stories explain the symbiotic relationship between software and product development for those who have never dreamed of programming a computer, and reveal what it was like to work on the cutting edge of technology at one of the world's most admired companies. Kocienda shares moments of struggle and success, crisis and collaboration, illuminating each with lessons learned over his Apple career. He introduces the essential elements of innovation, inspiration, collaboration, craft, diligence, decisiveness, taste, and empathy, and uses these as a lens through which to understand productive work culture. An insider's tale of creativity and innovation at Apple, Creative Selection shows readers how a small group of people developed an evolutionary design model, and how they used this methodology to make groundbreaking and intuitive software which countless millions use every day.

The C Odyssey: UNIXThe C Odyssey: UNIX
C is what is the world is breathing today. And book on C are filling book shelves like believers converging on a holy bank. But here’s a pilgrimage that’s a different king if voyage. The C Odyssey .Written in a easy . riverting and readable style, the book touches height that few have reached, and offers insights that nobody has divined. The C Odyssey is for those who’d like to learn C and for those who have learnt C. Garnished with smll programs . followed by in –depth explanations, the journey takes the beginner by the hand.breaking him into the mold, taking him up to a point , and letting him free to explore on his own .The platform covered is wide and diverse. From C under DOS to C under UNIX,Windows, OS/2, and its interfaces with networking and relational databases. The Odyssey has a seven stop itinerary.Unserialized and distinct,but threaded by thin silken bonds to each other. The saga is a lengthy one. Through lands that have been visited separately before. Speaking the same language from different podiums,they abet an undisrupted flow of thought. Odyssey 3 :Unix :The Open ,Boundless C UNIX is the much maligned ,debated and devoured entity today.An operating system that was possible only through C,It has always been dealt with rather cursorily. Most C Under UNIX books merely skimmed the surface, instead o cashin in on the opportunity to take s trip down to the philosophy of C,so easily reached through UNIX. This volume takes you through the innards, questioning the gist o finternal data structures like stat, ustat ,suid –bit control,file and record –level locking,IPCs like pipes, named pipes,semaphores,shared memory and message queues. The summit is reached with a fairly detailed inquiry into curses.The graphical face in UNIX,a very low profile GUI.

I am not a recruiter. I am a software engineer. And as such, I know what it's like to be asked to whip up brilliant algorithms on the spot and then write flawless code on a whiteboard. I've been through this as a candidate and as an interviewer. Cracking the Coding Interview, 6th Edition is here to help you through this process, teaching you what you need to know and enabling you to perform at your very best. I've coached and interviewed hundreds of software engineers. The result is this book. Learn how to uncover the hints and hidden details in a question, discover how to break down a problem into manageable chunks, develop techniques to unstick yourself when stuck, learn (or re-learn) core computer science concepts, and practice on 189 interview questions and solutions. These interview questions are real; they are not pulled out of computer science textbooks. They reflect what's truly being asked at the top companies, so that you can be as prepared as possible. WHAT'S INSIDE? - 189 programming interview questions, ranging from the basics to the trickiest algorithm problems. - A walk-through of how to derive each solution, so that you can learn how to get there yourself. - Hints on how to solve each of the 189 questions, just like what you would get in a real interview. - Five proven strategies to tackle algorithm questions, so that you can solve questions you haven't seen. - Extensive coverage of essential topics, such as big O time, data structures, and core algorithms. - A behind the scenes look at how top companies like Google and Facebook hire developers. - Techniques to prepare for and ace the soft side of the interview: behavioral questions. - For interviewers and companies: details on what makes a good interview question and hiring process.

Software & Business Applications

An Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in R (Springer Texts in Statistics)An Introduction to Statistical Learning: with…
An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides an accessible overview of the field of statistical learning, an essential toolset for making sense of the vast and complex data sets that have emerged in fields ranging from biology to finance to marketing to astrophysics in the past twenty years. This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, tree-based methods, support vector machines, clustering, and more. Color graphics and real-world examples are used to illustrate the methods presented. Since the goal of this textbook is to facilitate the use of these statistical learning techniques by practitioners in science, industry, and other fields, each chapter contains a tutorial on implementing the analyses and methods presented in R, an extremely popular open source statistical software platform. Two of the authors co-wrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and non-statisticians alike who wish to use cutting-edge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.
