Read this book if you plan to make money by writing code for others.

This is an interesting book.

It is not a soft skill book, but it is also not a technical book, it is something in between.

The book has valuable advices on how to behave as a professional programmer.

The author is writing software professionally since 1970, so there are a lot of stories about how the software was made back then. I liked those stories a lot.

Chapters titles are: Professionalism, Saying No, Saying Yes, Coding, Test Driven Development, Practicing, Acceptance Testing, Testing Strategies, Time Management, Estimation, Pressure, Collaboration, Teams and Projects, Mentoring, Apprenticeship and Craftsmanship, Tooling.

Classic book for soft skills.

After three attempts, in few years, I manage to finish this book.
I always started to read it, but after some time would just leave it, I am used to read technical books not soft skills book.
First edition of was written in 1936 and I liked this.
If it is that old and people are still reading it, maybe there is some use of it.
I did liked ideas from this book, so far they work.
