Service Design Books I Already Own:
1. Business Model Generation: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences by Alexander Osterwalder
2. Unfolding the Back of the Napkin by Dan Roam
3. Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences by Nancy Duarte
4. A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future by Dan Pink
5. Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Thayler and Sunstein
6. Ten Faces of Innovation IDEO’s Strategies for Defeating the Devil’s Advocate and Driving Creativity Throughout Your Organization by Tom Kelley
7. Yes by Robert Caldini
8. Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard by Chip and Dan Heath
9. Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Dan Pink

Here is the full list of service design book recommendations (its notable that they leave The Art of Innovation written by IDEO–although to be fair Ten Faces of Innovation seems the better book to me and there is significant overlap between the two).

Are there any I should add or subtract from my service design book list?
