I'm a communications person and I learned some great things from this book. Plus which it's always diverting to see into the engineering mind.
Warning: Version 1 of this book is called, “Team Geek”. I ordered this book because I raved about Team Geek and had bought copies for others. I wanted to see what new things the authors had to say. It wasn’t until I had the book in hand and read the forward that I learned this is the second edition to Team Geek. This information should be in the basic description. The same six chapter titles exist in both books:
• The Myth of the Genius Programmer
• Building an Awesome Team Culture
• Every Boat Needs a Captain
• Dealing with Poisonous People
• The Art of Organizational Manipulation
• Users are People Too
The mission changes slightly from; to help programmers… to help people spend less time fighting and more time creating. In my estimation, about 80% of the material is the same; in some cases it’s been reframed. There are new stories and cute cartoon like pictures.
The underlying premise of both books is that humility, trust, and respect is what builds effective and collaborative teams. Version 2.0 attempts to make it more generic and for software engineers. In that, it doesn’t do so well. It is an excellent book for folks who are familiar with terms like: CVS (not the drugstore), port (not the drink), proxy (not the stock voting kind), and Apache (not the helicopter) and who haven’t already read Team Geek. It’s clever, convincing, and easy and fun to read for the right audience.
