I think this book was mostly written in vanity. Very low signal to noise ratio
But, if you are the developer this book is writing about, just don't read it. This book isn't for you. You already know what's inside this book and reading it would feel like a "duh, why did I just spend this money" moment. However, appreciate the book for what it is, an attempt to make your life and your job easier.
I’ve been online a few years longer than the author and my career has some parallels (multiple startups, stints at larger companies) and while I haven’t (yet) founded a billion dollar corporation my advice to company executives as a part time CTO/COO is nearly identical to much of this book. In fact I am likely to buy copies of this book for future clients.
So most definitely keep asking your developers - and strive to build organizations and structures to empower them and to connect all parts of your company to customers.
Having graduated from M.I.T. and having run numerous tech ventures for VCs, my second half observation should have some meaning.
Nonetheless, the first half is worth the price of admission.
