It's nice having a collection of high-quality writing related to software and the business in one place instead of trawling the Web for it. — Meryl K. Evans, meryl.net & Slashdot Contributor

...an entertaining read with a number of enlightening insights into what I do for a living... — Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings

The whole book is fantastic though, and you should absolutely pick it up...in dead tree form. — Garrett Rooney, Software Engineer and Author

This is a book worth checking out, even if you're not a software developer. — David Bindel, Tea Total

Book News Annotation:

Seeking to encourage better writing about software, the editor has selected 29 pieces written in 2003 and 2004 as examples of clear, engaging, and occasionally funny writing about software composition and use. Contributions include Paul Graham's "Great Hackers," Adam Bosworth's talk from ICSOC04, Mary Poppendieck's "Team Compensation," and "A Quick (and Hopefully Painless) Ride Through Ruby (with Cartoon Foxes)" by the programmer known as "why the lucky stiff."
