"Perfect for getting the vibe on corporate culture and learning vehicle for software managers" awesome!! Some of the stories in the book has so much similarities to what I find around me. Helps me understand, I am not in the unique place (also makes me sad that I can not get out of it where-ever I go). Also good to see remedies described for them. Definitely good for managers to get a copy ;) and learn how a fair environment can be created for best productivity.
"Interesting & inspiring" I am really glad to read a book about the engineer spirit rather than another book of software development methodology. The stories in the book resonate with my personal experiences as a software development manager. From time to time, we will forget the most important part of our project....OUR ENGINEERS but just focus on the task and tight time-line!! Without setting the right foundation for an effective and productive team, it is not easy at all to get a successful software development project. This book provides a very pragmatic approach for us to try. It's fun to learn from other people's real experience!! Don't miss it!!
