Book review: Joel on Software…

Ok, this must be book with the longest title I”ve read until today. Here its complete name: Joel on Software and on Diverse and Occasionally Related Matters That Will Prove of Interest to Software Developers, Designers, and Managers, Whether By Good Fortune or Ill Lick, Work with Them in Some Capacity. Phew…That is really a long long title! This book is an aggregate of several of Joel”s thoughts on software development that he has been publishing in his blog since 2000.

You can agree or disagree with Joel, but there”s one thing everyone agrees on: Joel is a terrific and entertaining writer. He is able to capitalize on his extensive experience and ends up giving you lots and lots of stories that will probably amuse you (or, if you don”t agree, will probably make you complain with the book :),,). Ok, by now it”s fair to say that you don”t need to buy this book because everything that”s there is publicly available on his blog. But, if like me, you”re  a sucker for these kind of essays, then you”ll surely end up buying this interesting book. My score: 9/10.
