Emphases are put on the ethics of working as a programmer and as a member of the team. Inside this book you'll find tips on how to learn communication language among your peers, how to talk to non-engineers, and how to deal with difficult people. This book also shows us how to take a break when needed, and how to recognize when to go home, and how to communicate and negotiate with your boss, so that you won't end up working for 50 to 60 hours a week.
This is a very good book, one that should be a mandatory for wannabe and professional programmers. If you happened to be a manager who supervises a hive of programmers, this book should provide you with useful insights into their minds and habits.
