Neish stands on the shoulders of giants. Our models are derivative triangulations of great ideas from brilliant minds. We are grateful.

When I drift off with a book, I want the author to take me somewhere worthwhile.  These writers do that; they have things to show you.   Choose your bookshelf, get a cup of tea and browse. These books are the perfect companion for any development journey.
