Book Description

6 April 2009
Phil Factor is a legend in his own runtime. Scurrilous, absurd, confessional and scathing by turns, Confessions of an IT Manager targets the idiocy, incompetence and overreach of the IT management industry from vantage point all the way up and down the greasy pole. Phil Factor (real name witheld to protest the guilty) has over 20 years experience in the IT industry, specializing in database-intensive applications. For withering insight into the human weaknesses and farcical levels of ineptitude that bring IT projects to their knees, plus occasional escapes into burnished pastiche and cock-a-leg doggerel there is no funnier, more illuminating commentary on the IT crowd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Goodness 30 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is just funny, great and a real eye-opener to what has and is going on in the IT world.
The author really has a way with words and a life-time of stories to bring you into the deep, dark and mostly ungoverned world of IT.
A must for any IT Manager.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! 6 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
Well what an eye opener! now I know what my IT guys get up to all day while I stare helplessly at a blank screen having tried plugging it in, restarting it, and kicking it. Very enjoyable read and a great insight for any corporate PC user. Phil is a talented writer, blogger, and story teller and I look forward to his next instalment

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone in IT 21 July 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an hilarious book with some laugh-aloud moments. But, more importantly, it outlines many of the absurdities in IT management. Anyone in charge of an IT department MUST read this book and, hopefully, avoid the pitfalls and pratfalls it amusingly describes.
