Hello Sheeba,
I attended JDC (Java Developer's Conference) in Cairo 10 days ago, where Ed Burns gave 2 very delightful sessions. He also introduced his book, so I think that I can answer your question.
This book consists of fourteen chapters. Each chapter is an interview that the author conducted with one of the "Rockstar Programmers". The list include Rod Johnson (inventor of Spring), Adrian Colyer (Project Lead of AspectJ), James Gosling (Father of Java) and Chris Wilson (Lead Architect of Microsoft Internet Explorer) among others. It also includes an interview with Weird Al Yankovic (an actual rockstar) .
Each chapter gives you a fact sheet on the interviewee, an introduction, and then questions on soft skills, hard skills, background, personal, business, etc.
