This is by far the most inspirational book I have read so far this year. Chad Fowler is a respected authority in the Ruby programming community and this book is aimed at aspiring software such as myself. The main theme in the book and what I really got out of it in the end is the suggestion of paying attention to not only acquiring cutting edge skills but also indulging in self-marketing and networking in person. He suggests treating your career as a product that you work on improving non-stop and also marketing it. Other important things he suggests is keeping an out for emerging technologies and getting involved at an early stage to end up becoming an expert eventually. Overall, I highly reccomend this book aspiring or currently involved in the software development world.
