December 09, 2009, 11:03 AM — You can't just stare at the screen all day. So take a break from the LCD glow and read a book. InfoWorld has uncovered a range of books that will stimulate your mind, whether to help you do your work better or simply engage you with new ideas. Many are written by InfoWorld contributors, and many others recommended by our contributors.
We've organized these recommendations into loose collections, to make perusing our virtual display table easier. We've also provided links to online bookstores for easy purchasing, though we hope you'll use a local bookseller in your area first. Note that prices are list prices; books are often sold at a discount of 20 to 30 percent from these prices. And if you insist on continuing to stare at a screen, we note which books are available for the Amazon.com Kindle e-reader.
We'd love your suggestions as well, so please add them to the comments section.
