There have ever only been a handful of books on managing programmers and teams (while project managers have benefited from having a ton of books on project management of every kind).
That's what led my coauthor and I to start writing. That and our wish to share the scores - now hundreds - of rules of thumb and nuggets of wisdom we'd been collecting from our peers. We'd been trading them for the decade we'd known each other. They seemed more broadly useful.
Now all that's in a book. Rules. Nine chapters of our insights from a combined 70 years in software. And the tools we've used to manage.
