Book recommendations: Hi 🐠, can you all recommend a few books that can help me learn a little about the following topics?

- How to go about ideating a new line of service or product? (Understanding market needs and viability of the product, designing/scoping the product, etc)
- How to define a business case for funding an idea?
- How to launch a product and/or a startup?

Starting a Strategy role and would like to use the down time to prepare. Open to other books on strategy concepts as well :)

Recent University graduate here, I have been job hunting for a month/month and a half for positions in healthcare. Had a couple of interviews but either nothing struck me as something I want to do/ the companies hired someone else. I want to work in tech either as an IT consultant or software developer. However, I am somewhat lost to how I could possibly transition to that world with zero to no background besides a comp101 course in my last semester.
