really liked it
Read in December, 2011

Joel has a very distinctive style that I find appealing because it is matter of fact, slightly bitter, but also resolutely "visionary". I scare quote the visionary because it seems like he considers himself more of a visionary than anything else, but that's how it gets baked into his style for better or worse. Full of useful tips, tid bits, and anecdotes, I find this book to be useful in my own evaluation of my working environment, myself as a worker, and my colleagues. I am recommending it to folks looking for jobs in the industry.
