Short, sharp and meaningful,
This review is from: Getting Real: The smarter, faster, easier way to build a successful web application (Paperback)
This book will only take you half a day to read, but it is half a day of your life that is worth investing. If you are building and distributing web applications, then this book is a bible of what you should and shouldn't do. It is all too common to get dragged down into the rich feature set on version 1 of your application and this book, amongst other things, guides you down the righteous path of saying no to feature bloat.
I will be going back to this book time and time again, not only because it is such an easy read, but because it is so relevant to the programming world I work in.
