My books, one-by-one

Best Practices For Operational Excellence

(my highest-rated book)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4.80 average rating on Goodreads

“I’m a huge fan of High Output Management and Setting the Table […] Luca’s Best Practices for Operational Excellence took my management to the next level. It’s been almost a month since I started implementing the principles, but I can already say that I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my company’s morale […] That feels amazing.”

– Molson Hart, Viahart CEO

Cover for Best Practices for Operational Excellence


(my most reviewed book)

“One of the most important books I’ve read, period. It’s short, articulate and expansive on a singular subject matter — ergodicity which is really the key ingredient to success in life, marriage, business, family, happiness, health, etc..”

– Black Janover, Janover Inc. CEO


100 Truths You Will Learn Too Late

(my bestselling book)

“Excellent book with formulas to increase the chances of achieving what we want to be in life. Luca writes directly and leads the reader into action.”
– Edgar Anzola

“A tremendously useful book.”
– Balaji Srinivasan

100 Truths You Will Learn Too Late

The Control Heuristic

on human behavior

As seen on Nudgestock and Econtalk

“This book is like a magnificent suspension bridge, linking the science of the human brain to the practical craft of applying it in everyday life. I loved it.”
– Rory Sutherland, Ogilvy’s Vice Chairman

“A SUPERB book […] by one of the profound thinkers in our field [behavioral economics].”
– Michael G. Bartlett

The World Through a Magnifying Glass

the book for which I receive the most reader emails

“Thanks to Luca Dellanna for his book about autism and ASD. It’s probably one of the best works I have read in that matter (I have read a few) and it’s surprising how realistically he depicts the condition.”
– Manel Vilar

“Loved The World Through a Magnifying Glass – this analogy NAILS IT.”
– Emerson Spartz, NYT Bestseller Author

Roam Books

I’m the inventor of the Roam Book (rBook), a book format that enables the reader to discover a topic through non-linear exploration and proactive learning.

I’ve published two rBooks and helped a few authors do the same.
