    Pros: 

    Super mine de bouquins trouvée. De quoi vous inspirer !

    Cons: 

    On n'est qu'au début, hâte de voir la liste s'allonger.

    Ca fait gagner du temps quand on veut élargir ses recherches sur la tech et l'entrepreneuriat. Et c'est une liste issue d'une curation par les tech ! Pas mieux en termes de recommandation

    Pros: 

    Analytics section. Psychology section.

    Cons: 

    Only 1 Philosophy book.

    Honestly, I would like to see more philosophical and system thinking topics in the selection of books for Makers. Huge appreciation for Analytics category. Lot of biographies don't seem me as smth really useful. They are easy to read and have catchy headlines, but they are more about motivation than about some practical advices.

Hi Product Hunters, I’m Olivier, the maker of IHBOOKS, a curated directory of +160 books recommended by Indie Hackers. I’ve built this project because I’m a big fan of the IH interviews, where Makers share their story and give advices to others. From these advices, 116 makers have recommended 168 books (so far), that you will find on IHBOOKS. Any feedbacks and opinions are well received.

Hi Makers, @opourquier told me about this hand curated list of 📚 taken from IH he built. I immediately told him a was his first fan. I'm actually in the middle of finding new books to read and this is just what I needed! Olivier is a maker from Montpellier, France and usually sit just in front of me in our coworking space. Hope you'll also find some interesting material for your Xmas holidays (or gifts maybe). Pierre

@opourquier OMG I confused IHBooks with @johnbbartlet 's STARTUP BOOK CLUB, which I was perusing at the same time. Sorry but the commentary I wrote here on IH is intented for them! ... the Forum discussion and the book purchase of Atomic Habits goes to STARTUP BOOK CLUB!!
