I am following Joel and have read other books of him, this one seems like a summary of what he wrote in the past about hiring.
– How to advertise your positions to attract talented candidates.
– How to read and value resumes
– How to do a phone screening
Great book, short and with valuable information.
A great introduction to geopolitics, especially the chapters about Africa and India-Pakistan, were eye-openers. Easy to read and very insightful.
It is a great book, it doesn’t give a superficial introduction as most of the books out there, but it really explains in detail how the various language concepts work.
Finding methods dynamically, inheritance, mix/multi inheritance, lambdas, procs, singleton methods etc, are presented very well.

I had high expectations, but this book doesn’t really cover the topic in depth, its more or less a list of reactive libraries and frameworks. If you want to learn more about the topic its probably better to read related papers, or what’s the talks about RX on youtube.
With 10 years experience on SmallTak, it’s not a surprise that Sandi can explain OO concepts so well. She’d be a great professor. I really enjoyed this book, many very practical tips, that applies to most of the OO languages, not only to Ruby.

Easy read, with many real-world examples from companies like Linkedin, Twitter, Etsy. Provides myriad of best practices. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is involved in the development of any type of software, from POs to developers, and from QA engineers to Managers, this book has to offer practical advice to everyone.
