Barry Oshry: The Possibilities of Organization
Brilliant how just pictures describe (mis)communication in organisations.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
It reads like a small snack, still it is quite nutritious. Love it. Among many other things, the author makes happiness or flow researcheable. Flow is measured as a state where you use your skills above average and where you are challenged above average. An interesting finding is that people report such a flow state more often during work than during leisure time (while they report to rather spend more time at leisure than at work). It is interesting to find out how to optimise flow in knowledge work.
