This book is a must read for anyone working in the IT business, and by extension for everybody who had (or will have) dealings with IT companies.
So: you'll have a great read, great laughs and you'll learn the real deal about IT business. So go buy it!
Thank you, M. Limam: until then, lots of people spoke about situations like the ones you describe, but nobody was ever able to show the whole nine yards the way you do.
I'm expecting the next book. On consulting, maybe?
Taking advantage of the "search inside this book" feature, I was immediately drawn into the scenes involving various characters, representing employees of the fictitious IT firm, its clients and potential clients. Funny, funny, funny --- and, oh, so true. I've been in the IT field for 20 years; rarely has there been a book more accurate on the doings in this world. While it may be a bit much to compare this book to a "Liar's Poker" for life in and around the technology field, you get the idea.
The reviewer who gave this book 1-star clearly has not the experience nor frames of reference to have his words be accurate.
Whoever wrote the "pitch" for this book did it a disservice, using the word "rococo" to describe its language. Rococo, in art or in writing, connotes an ornate style, which can be translated to mean "hard to read in spots". That's not the case with High Tech Planet; some of the characters speak as I have heard others speak, whose first language is not English, but have been extensively educated, picking up the language that way.
While I got a special kick out of this "expose" of my field, anyone who enjoys stories on business life will find this book most rewarding.
A real entrataing read!!
