Hi John,

Welcome

It seems to be you covered everything in the book (from ABOUT THE BOOK: advice to developers on important "soft" subjects like career and productivity, personal finance and investing, and even fitness and relationships)

Can you please answer my question below (Are these covered in the book ?)
For a S/W Developer, what is the right age for
1. Marriage
2. Retirement


Regards,
Murali Krishna

Hi Murali,

Marriage is not covered in the book, but retirement is definitely covered.
I have one chapter talking about retirement strategies and another chapter where I detail out exactly how I was able to retire at 33 years of age.

I know a few husband and wife teams, even a pair of performers who are married to each other, so do you think there are particular problems working with one's spouse?

I know another woman who threatened to retire if her department and mine were ever merged. “You've got David in your department and I would sooner retire than work in the same department as him.”

Names have been changed to protect the guilty!

I suppose it greatly depends on the person. I worked with my wife several times in my career and we got along fine. But, I know other stories that didn't end so well.
 
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
