“Managing Humans”: entertaining + insightful = good

Quick recommendation: I just finished “Managing Humans” by Michael Lopp.  This book is an insightful and entertaining view of software engineering and software engineering management.  It is, as the sub-title so accurately says,  full of “Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager”.

Recommended for entertainment value even if you aren’t a manager and don’t intend to become one.  Think of it as Dilbert in words, with useful analysis added.  If you are a manager in software development (or of any kind), this book has some useful insight into people, organizations and you.

If I end up in a management role again, I’ll probably buy a copy to read and reread as necessary.  For now I’ll return this one to the library so someone else can enjoy this gem of insight and entertainment.
