Review
I can not overexert importance of this book.
This book should be read from cover to cover at least every second day before noon.

Forget about algorithms, data structures, CPU/memory trade-off, Big O notation, copy/pasting from Stack Overflow is what gets thing done, apps build and make you billionaire.

But not everybody can be super developer just with internet connection and access to Stack Overflow.
To beat professional developer you need to learn how to effectively copy/paste.

Few tips are:

Real men use keyboard shortcuts.
Their little finger is always on CTRL and index finger ready for C.
Or Command, if their Linux is broken.

Recognizing good code from bad code (code planted from NSA to make backdoor in your software).
Although to let NSA backdoor in your software is not so bad, then they can fix it when it stops working, because you will not know how after successful career in copy/pasting.

Advanced tips:

How to written interesting code questions, so that other people write your code for free.

Fell free to share your effective copying and pasting from Stack Overflow in comments.
