This book also has the benefit of the fact that we do not work in a vacuum. We learn from each other and when mentoring younger programmers a book like this helps to remind us of the things that were so ingrained in us ten years ago that we might never even think to mention it to our charges.
1st - I think the number 97 may be too much for everyone to pitch in and do a good job of it and also keep the book thin and also get the point across.
2nd - The ideas talked about in some of the items seem very good - but as the idea got into my head slightly - I saw that the article ended.
Some of the other items I think 50% of them - seemed not really worth writing about probably - they should be known to any developer who had done good enough Software Developer for 10 years or so.
