Technical knowledge alone isn't enough - increase your software development income by leveling up your soft skills Early in his software developer career, John Sonmez discovered that technical knowledge alone isn't enough to break through to the next income level - developers need "soft skills" like the ability to learn new technologies just in time, communicate clearly with management and consulting clients, negotiate a fair hourly rate, and unite teammates and coworkers in working toward a common goal.

This book really gives you a lot to think about and start taking action, whether small or big ones, towards bettering your career. You can easily skip any chapter you already know the topic such as agile and scrum. Listening to the audio is better than reading his book because he's very entertaining and also really add his own touch to it. I also really appreciate how he touches base on female software developers by dedicating a chapter and choosing his words wisely for both men and women in the field.

In Hold Me Tight, Dr. Johnson shares her groundbreaking and remarkably successful program for creating stronger, more secure relationships. The message of Hold Me Tight is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, making grand romantic gestures, or experimenting with new sexual positions. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Well spent if you can get past the narrator's robot voice....

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sandra Burr?

Someone with a warmer tone. It felt like I was listening to Siri reading the whole time. You gotta really get past the abrupt reading of the narrator to really listen to the meaning of the book. Doesn't seem like Sandra Burr was using the author's voice. Instead she just sounds like Siri... The author makes a lot of reference to other people's work and it I think the narrator could've done a better job instead of just listing out those references.

Could you see Hold Me Tight being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.But possibly a documentary.

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

This book makes a lot of references to God. I felt like I had to tune out those parts a lot.
