Top KM books and guidance

Reading around a topic is something that I always find helpful when getting to grips with that subject, and KM has no shortage of good books and articles to stimulate those thoughts and plans.
A recent discussion on LinkedIn asked for peoples thoughts on “must have” KM books, with some interesting results.

There are many blogs and websites with good recommendations, such as David Skyrme’s site and the Knoco site with many books, articles and white papers. David Gurteen also lists his top ten KM books and I am sure that there are many others.

The comments on that LinkedIn discussion brought some recommendations that I have not found so far, such as Nick Milton’s suggestion:

Nancy Dixon's "Common Knowledge"
Melissie Rumizen, "The Complete Idiot's guide to KM"

Together with a lot of the well thumbed texts that I have enjoyed so far, such as:

Learning to Fly by Chris Collison and Geoff Parcell 2004, and Working Knowledge by Thomas H Davenport and Larry Prusak, 2000.

The only problem is making the time to read them all!
