Materials Science and Engineering

(Willian D. Callister, Jr. and David G. Rethwisch)

Recommended reason:

This book is the work of Willian D. Callister, Jr. and David G. Rethwisch who are experts in material science field. The 8th edition was recommended by our Material and Process lecturer as a knowledge extension. To me, this is one of the most updated references in the library, which not only presents an overview of four elements of the material science (processing, structure, properties, and performance), but also exhibits the correlation among the design, production, and utilization of materials. The content covered is quite crucial and necessary for comprehending the lessons and might also help to cater your advanced need beyond the curriculum requires.

Couter Systems: A Programmer's Perspective, Randal E.Bryant& David O’Hallaron, 2th edition.

Recommended reason:

This book elaborates on the essential concepts of computer systems from the perspective of programmers and shows how these concepts can actually affect the correctness, performance, and usability of applications. The book consists of 12 chapters, and provides a large number of examples and exercises, and gives partial answers to help students deepen their understanding of the concepts and knowledge described in the text. The biggest advantage of this book is that it can help us construct a hierarchical computer system in the brain, which allows us to better understand why the behavior of the program is like this, and how inefficiency is caused. All in all, this book is perfect for students who want to write faster, more reliable programs.

Six Thinking Hats

By Edward De Bono (Back Bay Books, 1999)

Recommended reason:

“The main difficulty of thinking is confusion,” writes Edward de Bono, “We try to do too much at once. Emotions, information, logic, hope, and creativity all crowd in on us. It is like juggling with too many balls.” The solution is that De Bono unscrambles the thinking process with his “six thinking hats”.

Six Thinking Hats can help you think better-with its practical and uniquely positive approach to making decisions and exploring new ideas.Through case studies and real-life examples, Dr. de Bono reveals the often surprising ways in which deliberate role playing can make you a better thinker. He offers a powerfully simple tool that you-and your business, whether it’s a start-up or a major corporation-can use to create a climate of clearer thinking, improved communication, and greater creativity.It is an approach that thousands of business managers, educators, and government leaders around the world have already adopted with great success. His book is an instructive and inspiring text for anyone who makes decisions, in business or in life.

Planning and Management of Meetings, Expositions, Events and Conventions

(by George G. Fenich, Ph.D.)

Recommended reason:

This book is written by George G. Fenich, Ph.D., who is a well-known author that writes about the event and meeting industry. In my opinion, this is one of the most recent must-haves for the event planners. The title covers a wide range of topics related to this industry with a primarily practical approach. It can be a source of knowledge not only for students, but also for staff undergoing training in this field. This one phrase encapsulates this book: “Current, concise, and insightful-a Modern Guide to planning successful events.” For a student majoring in Event Management, reading this book can help us understand this industry from a comprehensive perspective and accumulate our experience.
