About the Author

Harwell Thrasher is an author, speaker and advisor specializing in the human side of Information Technology. Harwell shows IT and business people how to work together more effectively by taking the magic out of IT. He sometimes describes himself as a “jiggler” because he helps unstick companies and IT organizations who are stuck in their old ways of doing things. Harwell founded MakingITclear, Inc. in 2002 after more than thirty years of experience working in and around IT organizations. In those thirty years Harwell developed and managed systems, created an Internet payroll product, totally revamped the systems and processes for a financial services business, performed technology due diligence for over twenty acquisitions in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Switzerland, and helped acquired companies integrate their IT strategies with the strategy of the acquiring company. A graduate of MIT’s Sloan School of Management, Harwell is an Atlanta native. See Harwell’s web site at www.makingITclear.com for more information and for a free monthly email newsletter.

Format: Paperback
Working as a support agent for a good number of years you start to pick things. This book points out a lot of the obvious, but goes on to explain why it is the way it is. I have and would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to progress their IT department or have a problem with their IT department. The book talks from high level, so if your looking for a technical manual this isn't your book. Great graduation present for any computer/management major.

Condition of the book, better than described, so I am very happy about that. Not at all happy about waiting 12 days for the book to ship from IN to IL (which is next door). If you can wait a long time to get your book, you will probably be happy using their store.

I was searching for resources that would help explain technology concepts in a straight-forward and uncomplicated manner to my non-technical peers when I came across "Boiling the IT Frog". After reading the book, I decided to purchase additional copies to share. Mr. Thrasher has done a very nice job at not only explaining key aspects of technology he has also provided solid insights regarding the individuals who have chosen technology as a profession - very helpful for those folks who just don't get technology and technical people.

This book also provides some good insights for the technical staff - helping them understand what it means to be a "wizard" and why that's not necessarily a good thing. The book provides good lessons for the business - the total business.

Great Reading! Should be read by all IT professionals, Business users and management. If only we come to realization - IT is for solving business problems, not IT for the sake of IT, we would be in great shape today.. But I think, this book is a step forward in that direction.
