This review is from: The Martian (Kindle Edition)
This is a smart book that will tickle the right geeky bone in your body. It's fun, fast paced and the science described seems plausible. Recommended.

Team Geek: A Software Developer's Guide to Working Well with Others
Team Geek: A Software Developer's Guide to Working Well with Others

4.0 out of 5 stars Must Read for Software Engineers, 30 Dec. 2013

If you spend your time writing software or leading a team that creates software then this book is for you. Personally, I don't like the title 'Team Geek' because in my humble opinion, not all geeks are software programmers, and not all software programmers are "geeks" in the colloquial sense. If you ignore that bit, the book is full of practical, contemporary advice on how to work with a team.

Software is, despite appearances, a very human endeavor. From the outside, looking in, it may seem like software is built by typing code at your keyboard all day long. Arguably, typing actual code is a very small part of building and shipping a working product. Building software primarily involves effectively working with people from different domain and expertise. You could be talking to the customers or business analyst to understand the business domain and tease out the requirements. You could be working with architects, user experience team etc to come up with a high level design that underpins the development. You could be coding with or managing a team of coders, or you could be liaising with the test team responsible for QA. The pivot for all these activities is human interaction.

The crucial advice that keeps cropping up in this book in different shapes and form is that if you want to be a better software developer, architect, team leader you need to master the human element of software development. It is not a panacea but I would definitely recommend it to anyone who want to make themselves and their teams more effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1984 for the social media generation, 30 Dec. 2013

Spoiler Alert, I suppose!!
Let me get this out of the way before I start my review. If you are a "social media" guru or don't mind sharing each and every intimate moment of your life online then this book might neither appeal nor alarm you, but if you read it you might be able to see what happens if a company or idea (of sharing) is taken to its extreme logical conclusion. HInt: We all end up with a totalitarian tyranny.

Dave Eggers is, without doubt, staggeringly talented and a very eloquent writer. He has created a unique plausible story of what happens when people allow a company to store and use their private information. Mae is a naif character who in her eagerness to please her superiors and to prove her worth helps implement a system that will eventually lead to one company (Circle, amalgamation of facebook, google, yahoo and other big information broker companies) to store, control, and possibly abuse private information about everybody and anybody in the United States and possibly in the world.

The orwellian outcome portrayed in this novel feels very conceivable, and arguments against sharing too much are very persuasive.

I would argue that this book will make you think before you press the Like or +1 button next time. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetic, surreal and tragic, 22 Sept. 2013
This is one of the most surreal books i have read recently. It can be read and interpreted on several levels. It stays with you long after you have closed the book. Like the islands in the book, the story is difficult to describe, you have to experience it.

Peter Sinclair, the narrator, tries to redefine himself by writing an autobiography of himself. He is suffering from bereavement, loss, and guilt. He hides them and simultaneously puts them on display in the pages of his manuscript. His split personality allows him to traverse, and sometimes merge the two different worlds. One fantasy that he has created, one real that he wants to meld into the former. Will he find what he is looking for in his own story?

The writing is taut, poetic and refreshing. The structure of the plot is non-linear at times but works well with the theme of the novel. A very satisfying read indeed.
