    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 ...

    Great research done

    Being an IT professional myself, especially a developer , i was amazed at the comparisons between a developer and a daily wage worker ; which is accurately true . I am happy to see that he has shown respect to developers in a particular section :).The character sketches done are the other highlights , esp rita and male version of rita :D .Personally i was able to relate every incident and every person with someone in my company !! .
    Overall it is depressing to read the life of a s/w engineer ...

    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!

    Great Buy !!! Funny at most places !!!

    I found most part of the book funny to the core. Being a part of the Software Industry, I immediately recognized the characters (mapping them to some of my colleagues) described in the book.

    The initial chapters were absolutely hilarious. Others were funny. However, the last few chapters became boring.

    In a nutshell, I loved most parts of the book. Good read!!! Will recommend to some of my IT friends.

    Summary of Experiences in IT World (Nevertheless, Nice One)

    A nice compliation of the life span of the author in the IT World. The book started off well but it was not that great a book throughout. You can finish reading the book in one go. It won't take more than 4 hours. Compared to a movie show, the LOSER book is a best option.
    With addition of humor and best possible practical examples, Dipen has narrated the happenings in IT industry. Not all things given in the book need to be taken seriously as you could possibly be an exception. Maybe a book t...
