Reading books (not only tehnical ones) is always usefull.
You either can learn something or it can be fun.
I like both combination mixed.
This weekend I read same book I have read 4 or 5 years before, difference was that first time I read it in Croatian language, and this time in English, but it was great both times.
In short terms this book represents good part of geek culture, however I won’t describe it here since wiki did that better than me, I’ll only quote one sentence from author:
“A fictional story about Microsoft/Silicon Valley personalities, this is an unabashed peep in the window of The Geek Family. The book is a good compendium of geeky culture; it’s not pretty, but it can be fascinating. The narrator is the most normal representative of the team developing a virtual-lego game/toy program, and his daily diary, at selected intervals over an 18 month period, forms the unprocessed source for the book. ”
Anyway I like it so i just wanted to recommend it 🙂
P.S. Anybody read it already? What’s your thoughts about it?
