really liked it
Recommended for: computer scientists, software business owners
Read in January, 2010 — I own a copy

A must-read for computer scientists. I enjoyed the concept of the Blub paradox, and how a lot of times, the way to succeed in business is to use the right technology to solve your problem, not the most "in-fashion" technology. Paul Graham has a lot of great points, and this may have been the only book assigned in my Master's program that I actually enjoyed.
