“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through but rather how many can get through to you.”

Mortimer J. Adler

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.
