I've read Steve Jobs, not sure why it would be included on a list specific to software engineers

I am currently reading the Chaos Queen book 2 - Dark Immolation. If you enjoyed the first book I think you will like the second as well. It seems to be moving at an alright clip while also attempting to culminate into a climax somewhere here (hopefully soon). The author has split up in to some additional character's POV chapters, which I am hoping we continue to dive in to and find more out about them. At times I would say that the pace is a little slow though... which is a strange combination of feelings for the book.

Currently slogging my way through Yuval Noah Harari's book Sapiens for a book group. I'd had some hopes for it, but so far it's pretty terrible stuff. About 150 pages in, I do not recommend starting it without first having read Harry Frankfurt's wonderful little essay "On Bullshit". It'll help you orient yourself to what Harari's up to.

The professionals SCRUM Masters handbook by Stacia Viscardi. It's pretty good.

Midway through David Levine's Arabella Of Mars, which was recommended to me by one of my oldest and dearest friends. It's turning out to be great fun. Regency space opera - think of Admiral Nelson sailing to Mars. Levine proceeds with a fine balance of strict accuracy and total disregard for common sense, and he's dab hand with a story.
I don't know if this is going to make any waves - I haven't seen it reviewed in the SF magazines, and Jemisen hasn't yet given it a mention in her column in the Times - but I think there's a number of people reading this thread who would enjoy it.
