I bought this book knowing it would be lightweight -- yet I hoped there might be some nuggets of insight. There are a few but I can't help feeling disappointed in this 140-page book (it's not 250 pages, as Amazon indicates). The book I'm comparing it to is Joel Spolsky's dense and meaty 360-page "Joel on Software." There's no comparison. Not complaining -- "The Developer's Code" is a pleasant read on the commute home but still .... Maybe in a few years a second edition will roll out and be more substantial in content.
The book is divided into 52 sections (the last two of which haven't been numbered), with titles like "Lie to Simplify," "Invest in a Good Work Environment," "Work Outside the Bedroom," and "Teach with Obvious Examples." It can't be said there are earth-shattering insights in these sections.
