Some books I’ve read and enjoyed and/or found useful: The hard thing about hard things, the innovator’s dilemma, High output management, Accelerate, The Phoenix project (though I much prefer The Goal)
The audiobook definitely has that military style to it: they speak is short, very terse sentences not using more words than necessary. It took me a minute to get used to it however I quite enjoyed it overall.
Yes it's a lot of common sense, but when you are running a company or a team, it's easy to have blinders on and miss these obvious things.
These are a few that I read and found useful. I'm not a CTO, just an intermediate developer.
