I recently read Sam Lightstone's 'Making it Big in Software'
http://www.amazon.com/Making-Big-Software-Become-Great/dp/0137059671.
It contains interviews by the big names of the industry...like Linus Torvalds, Marissa Ann Mayer, James Gosling. Also Sam gives a good outline of how to progress in your career starting from the interview...all the way to a visionary.

Did anybody read this book? What did you think?

Agree. Why not post a review on JavaRanch? It must obviously be an original review.
