Read It - Joel on Software by Joel Spolsky

This was a book that was recommended to me by two coworkers who are programmers. Being that I had to learn coding for work, this seemed like a good book to read – for coding. It turns out that it is just a good all around book for ideas related to management in general. Joel’s ideas on conducting interviews and hiring practices are just so insightful that they transcend the software business and have value for anyone in a position of having to make hiring decisions. His thoughts on team management are equally insightful and of course his thoughts on coding should be required reading for any coder. This book isn't for everyone but if you are in management, if you are in the software business, or if you are a coder wanting to get some more tools in your arsenal, check out this book.
