I need some good book recommendations. My lovely employers give me so much dang money to buy books with that I can't keep up. Technical books are in, as well as professional development books (like "How to not get fired because you're a moron: 3 easy steps"). Stuff like that. So go ahead and start recommending. I have about $300 bucks worth to buy ... in the next week or so.

FYI this book is more suitable if you are sitting or closer to the top ranks in companies. Not really relavant for pure techie types who want to do stuff by themselves and be coders than leaders.

Btw Ernest, you wouldn't mind resurrecting my other deleted post from today, that also dealt with a book title - (one from like 10am)???

It was not meant to be replied to, it was simply an FYI.

See that's why i used the word "Interested"
Reading an autobiography of some sportman doen't necessarily implies that you want to one like him right?

If you think that a developer can't be benefitted from this book then I would recommend you to read it / and in case you already have read then I guess probably you must be looking for some API in it
