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. All these and many other minute details of IT industry have been put forth in a funny way. One who is IT industry will have total enjoy it. A funny read.

Hilarious!!! (Best Book I have Ever Read)

Best Stress Buster Ever!!! , Everything is a Fact that happens in Day to Day Life in an IT Industry, Dipen has Plotted it in a Very Well Manner with Perfect Examples that will make you go like LOL (Not just like chat "lol" but yes Laugh Out Loud) or Rather ROFL.

Complete Funny Dictionary for Software Professionals; with unbeatable Examples (which Most of us already had and if not then you can go ahead and give it a Try).

People who want to Join the Industry should also go for it(So that they can have a Better Overview) and People who are already "IN" ,there are lots of tricks and for you.!!!(so that you can enjoy it)

Hats off to the Author for such good observations and plotting them so well in a book and also thanks for making us laugh so hard by such wonderful gift [;)], we are expecting more such quality products from You

BIBLE for all Corporates

Purchased this book from Flipkart after reading many positive reviews and I must say it's totally worth all the hype it has build up.
Don't go after many negative reviews citing "not so Humorous book" or "boring book" . People with those kind of reviews must be very frustrated with their lives already.

This book is not only for those in IT or s/w industry, even all corporates can co-relatye with it.

The book correctly portrays what happens in corporate and bet me on this you would find the written stuff very true and close. And the way author has put up his satirical viewpoint in tabular manner in which he compares between 2 different kind of people is AWESOME!
and interesting.

If you watch How i met your mother or californication, you would find Author is bit influenced by Barney and Hank Moody.
TRUST ME, You will love this book and not at all feel bored.

PS: And I've just started reading author's other hit book : TBNTB. Awesome again

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 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.

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,but yes they are lesser in number but definitely the ones to aspire upto !
Definitely a one time read for a "Softie" as Dipen calls himself and the software engineers ! :)
