Fupping’s Taegan Lion interviews Andrew Hatfield on the 20 most important books every computer science student should read – and his answers will surprise you!

Jeff Olson's Slight Edge
The Slight Edge

Bob Burg's Go Giver
The Go-Giver

The second, but equally as important, is Bob Burg‘s “The Go Giver“. When you adopt an attitude of service where you always provide more value than you take in payment, one of giving freely without the expectation of receiving anything in return, your results will skyrocket.
