If it’s a disease, I’ve got it. I blame Scott Barber. ;0)
You see I’m writing a book, and through the process Scott pointed me to:
- Weinberg on Writing – Gerald M. Weinberg
So I land on one of my fave online book stores, locate it, and add it to my cart. The problem arose from my search method. I searched via ‘Gerald Weinberg’. Why was this a problem… because it added ALL of his books to the search results (to be expected, I know). So instead of buying just the above book, upon checkout my cart also contained these gems:
- The Secrets of Consulting: a Guide to Getting and Giving Advice Successfully – Gerald M. Weinberg
- More Secrets of Consulting: The Consultant’s Tool Kit – Gerald M. Weinberg
- An Introduction to General Systems Thinking – Gerald M. Weinberg
A terrible problem to have, I know. ;0)
I may need to give up a hobby to make time for all of these!
In case you’re interested, you got 4 of my top 5 Jerry books… the only one you are “missing” is Perfect Software. 🙂
“missing” from that list maybe, but it already takes pride of place on my growing book shelf! ;0)
Seriously though dude, inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes… it even has a pony tail occasionally.
I’d also recommend ‘Becoming a Technical Leader’ – and I’ve just placed an order for his On Writing book…
Thanks Phil. I almost grabbed that one aswell. I’m sure it’ll find its way on to my book shelf soon enough. :0)
I think I have the affliction too – two books written with Donald Gause are “Are your lights on?” (very good!) and “Exploring requirements” (old, but good and insightful) – and of course, there is the QSM series, argh! the list goes on…..
haha – Certainly is a lot to exploe from this man!
You folks are very kind. Thanks for the kind words.
Credit where credit’s due Gerry. :0)
Just keep doing it!
