Newspapers & Magazines
"A witty look at the foibles of software engineering, based on real examples. . . . This voice of experience offers a good dose of humility to arrogant young programmers."--"American Mathematical Monthly" "This book's great glory is the author's implicit, but pervasive, notion that the human interface extends through software; and that programs are just ways that people tell computers what they should be doing. . . . [A] book filled with points to think about well before you start coding menus or screens."--"UnixWorld" "The book provides a stimulating read, with a fair sprinkling of controversial opinions from which intelligent readers . . . will draw their own conclusions."--J. Dodd, "Information and Science Technology" "This book is very easy to read, and is so entertaining that it is hard to put down.... An excellent book, and a must-read for software professionals."--"Choice"
