I was laughing all the way :-) :-)

This book has so many funny details of incidents and people working in IT industry that I was unable to control my laugh all the way. Thing which touched me most was the description of conversation which takes place between people who have been to onsite and the one who haven't. It was totally hilarious.
Marriage of a IT professional, how he travels to office, how much time he spends in travelling, what he does when he is on bench, appraisals, resignation, onsite experience, chocolates which they get, how a project manager, leader, team lead, and team member work, how appraisals happen. Al...

Nice Read!

To be honest the book started a bit low on my expectations but Gained Momentum after first 35-40 pages and did not loose it till the end ! The comparisons made by Dipen in the book are pretty hillarious and ( Real too ! ) . And the concept of "Richa's And Ajays" ,Appraisal meetings , three most happy days in life of a "Softie" and the "Production support" are right on the spot ! :)
Though this book shows the hillarious side of the IT world, for the future Guys,just a general word of caution : This world is also full of some real smart and hardworking people,bu...

Definitely a one time read for a "Softie" as Dipen calls himself and the software engineers ! :)

Fun read!

I will quote from the PREFACE of this book:
"By qualification I am an electrical engineer.

By profession, I am a software developer turned tester turned production support analyst turned business analyst!"

So true! The lines were an instantly struck a chord with me and compelled me to buy the book! Of the four stages of the professional life-cycle of a software engineer mentioned by Dipen, I am very lucky (read unfortunate) to directly introduced to the third stage - production support analyst! Many of us join jobs and trained as "software developers" only to turn up...

Many of us join jobs and trained as "software developers" only to turn up as "production support analyst". Only, a lucky few actually has seen the first two stages!

Well, about the book, some sections are hilarious, some are not so! Overall, a fun read. You will not regret.

humour at its best!

Being a project manager, i was little offended at the book bcos it pokes a lot of fun on the managers :), but overall it loved the book for its humour. I am an ardent fan of scott adams and hence this book appealed to me a lot. I could recollect my early days in the IT industry! Btw, i got the signed copy from the author himself when he had come for an exhibition Infosys pune!

Its like a Induction Manual

The book is a good but if you hoping that this is a story, it is not.
It is more like a induction manual with tits and bits about ow to survive in the Software Industry.

My reason for not rating high:
- Could have been made more interesting read.
- The tables and repetitive section could have b...

A good read!

The book certainly busts misconceptions when it comes to the 'Softie world' as the author calls it, and by use of comparisons and exaggerations presents a generalized, oversimplified of the life of a Soft Engr. It's hard to believe that this is what people are running after! (View complete review)
