I find a lot of books, especially more recent efforts, I read, like Daring Greatly as an example that comes immediately to mind, to really feel like to me expanded whitepapers. I found Dr. Cloud's Necessary Endings to kind of fit in that mindset of mine. It's a good read, great writing with some definite gems. With deep respect for Dr. Cloud's work and apologies for my perspective, I just couldn't quit thinking "whitepaper."
