My Job Went to India

A few months ago I read My Job Went to India. My conclusion: It's an essential book for any software developer. The book contains a list for:
managing and developing your career as a programmer --Dave Thomas
I actually think reading this book is as important for your career as reading The Pragmatic Programmer is for your skills.

Unfortunately, the title isn't great.

In fact the title is so bad that I've wanted to recommend it for awhile, but I couldn't think of what to write that would convince people to forgive the title and read it anyway.

Then, today, Dave Thomas wrote about the importance of book titles. In his entry he mentions that it was a "Big mistake" to go with the title My Job Went to India.

That's when I knew what to say about the title, my honest opinion.

So, forgive the title and give the book a shot. You'll be glad that you did.
