    Nook edition 3x the cost of Kindle and Paperback?

    Joel Spolsky gives really great "industry standards" advice. He is a must read for those who plan to pursue (and stay employed in) careers as Software Developers. However, there must be some mistake somewhere in the price of this book. Nook Version 31.99 Paperback 11.99 Kindle Version 9.99 Really?

    Hiring the "cream" of new software engineering grads fresh out of college

    There is very little useful information in this book for the senior software engineer who finds himself back in the job market during hard times. Of course, a hiring manager who is trying to lure the top college software engineering grads to his company may find this book interesting.

    Smart and Gets Things Done provides insight on hiring and retaining IT professionals from a unique perspective - that of a techie managing a for-profit business. Joel provides practical information that even those on 'the business-side' can understand regarding the care and feeding of technical professionals. He shares tips, topics, and methods that can be used in every IT organization. I highly recommend this book for recruiters and IT department heads looking to grow their organizations while increasing production.
