I was going to post the heading "I wish I had this 10 years ago" but someone beat me to it. Thinking about it, I'd rather have a time machine with the critical knowledge I have now and armed with John's book. This book really is the missing manual.

I'll admit I've been a follower of John's work for 2 and a half years now after having read the fantastic book Soft Skills: A Developer's Life Manual. Ever since then I would argue having implemented some of his advice my career has gone from strength to strength. The greatest strengths in his writing is that it pumps you up and gets you motivated.

While I don't agree with everything John has said in the book I would say I agree with 98% of it. I have over 10 years experience working in the software industry and echo a lot of his thoughts in many different areas including his discussion around bootcamps and whether University education these days is really the right option. There's also a fantastic section on how to learn anything quickly. Given John has developed 55 different Pluralsight courses in a short space of time I'm fairly confident he knows what he's doing...

Some may argue that the advice given in this book crosses over with a lot of John's online material at SimpleProgrammer.com, however, if you want it all organised in an easily digestible format this is the book to purchase. It's absolutely worth it's weight in gold.

Following John's advice I've built numerous blogs, spoken at conferences (through invites), been invited to webinars and been approached to produce online content. I've also received a promotion, increased salary by more than 25% during this time. Whilst I can't put everything down to John, because ultimately the buck stops with you, I can attribute his books for kick-starting my career into overdrive.

If you're stuck in a dead-end job, want to transfer over to a promising career as a software developer or simply want to give your current career a bit of an adrenaline kick then buy this book.

This book is the perfect guide to find the software developer career path that is right for you and to understand what you need to do and learn in order to get there. If you are new to software development you must read the book cover to cover. There is tons of great advice in it. If you are a more experienced developer like me you can skim the book more quickly and fully read the content you are more interested about (especially the section on Advancing Your Career). I particularly liked the emphasis on the importance of code structure and readability, testing and automation, investing deeply on a single programming language and stack, how to learn more effectively, the power of inbound marketing, the difference between freelancing and contracting, how the recruitment industry work, how to deal with people in your team and toxic people, the importance of giving and contributing to the technical community and how to go and create your own business. John also shares many of his personal experiences and failures that is extremely valuable so that you can try to avoid making the same mistakes he made. John's story is very inspiring and motivating for me and it's a great reminder that there is no limit in what you can achieve as a software developer. During the course of the entire book John provides recommended resources and books that can significantly help to advance in your career. Overall I highly recommend this book to orient yourself in the complicated world of software development. I am being following John for a long time now and I know how much he loves simplicity. I have to say this book is really making it simple for you. Go, read the book and more importantly apply it in your real life.

Many Software Developers read books on an ongoing basis to keep their technical skills sharp but many do not do the same for the softer skills required to be a rounded professional.

John makes no bones about the fact that building a successful career is hard work and requires dedication and drive. Instead he provides advice and techniques for maximising the returns on your effort investment. No punches are pulled in this book, and that's a good thing, John tells it like it is from his own experience.

The book is broken down in the sections targeted at different periods in a Developers career, from starting out to being an experienced professional. But don't think that, if like me, you have 15+ years experience you will only benefit from the latter sections. We can all benefit from reviewing our foundation technical knowledge - and our soft skills are no different. Even if the earlier sections show you that you are on the right track this is valuable information.

I've previously read John's "Soft Skills" book and while there was some cross-over with this one I am happy to have them both on my bookshelf - this book taking some aspects to a higher level.

In contrast to John's previous book, Soft Skills, this book solely focus on the career aspect of a software developer.

Even if you are a complete novice and are interested in software development, or you are an already experienced professional, John's book will point out the concrete things you need to be aware of if you'd like to advance your career. You will have a battle plan to achieve whatever it is you desire career wise. Also important to note is that you'll develop the mindset you need to be successful. Much of the advice can be applied to other areas of your life. In the end, it is up to you to follow through the action points.

There is of course some overlap with what you'd learn from John's YouTube videos and blog, but the book does a great job in centralising and structuring all of this information.

I believe software will become an even more competitive domain and this book will help you stay "ahead of the game" so to say.

Lastly, what I like about John's style of teaching is that he's using the power of personal example. Everything he recommends has been personally tested by himself. As he likes to say, by following his advice, it's almost impossible not to succeed.

This book is not only for beginners, not only for software developers. Its for everyone. I don't want to get too excited and just want to mention that I hate books but this one is amazing. The content and the language he uses to grab the reader is fantastic. As a self-taught developer I'm finding the book really useful and enjoyable.

Watched few of John's videos on Youtube and would say that he is a person who should be everyones mentor. The tips and the way of thinking are just incredible.

Love the idea that he shares all of this information and tries to give us the tricks to make it easier for us.

Don't think about it. Just buy the book!

I like John, I've seen a fair few YouTube videos and read a few blog posts, and I applaud the way he has carved a niche out of teaching Software Developers life skills, rather than technical ones.
Whilst many other books out there that are essentially motivational books discuss similar concepts and get you just as riled up, it's refreshing to read one that is so intimately tied to the mythical world of Software Development.

The book is easy to read (he found 'his voice' after all), and despite being lengthy in content it doesn't actually take long as there's nothing particularly complicated to parse.

And that's the thing, at first I wondered why there wasn't more technical content, or at least more in depth content on gaps in most developers knowledge, but then I remembered the actual title of the book and it made perfect sense. Whilst a lot of time is spent focusing on the (very) high-level overview of the technical aspects, these sections are more for the complete novice than someone who is already a developer.

The book aims to give you a blueprint, a rough guide to how you could shape your career more effectively.
The reason John defers the in-depth details to authors of other books (all of which are great recommendations by the way) is because he is playing the role of a mentor.

Instead of hoarding the knowledge and what, to a lot of developers, appear to be 'secrets', he is lifting the lid and guiding you down a path that will ultimately, should you 'Take Action', lead you to becoming a better version of yourself, at least in your career.

Now of course I don't agree with everything that was said in the books, and I feel more could be said about the cutting-edge world of development, but I give this book 4 stars because there is nothing else like it (to my knowledge), and it really is a (mostly) Complete Software Developer's Career Guide.

I stumbled across this gem of a book purely by accident. I haven't read it all but have enjoyed the first few chapters and can see the potential.

I am a teacher and lecturer and can program in many languages, but have never worked as a software developer or produced any software commercially other than website development. Ironically, I teach students who go on to become software developers.
One of the reasons I haven't worked as a software developer is because I wouldn't know where to start other than at the bottom of the ladder - given that I already know how to program and have lots of theoretical experience, I needed advice on all the other stuff that needs to be known. This book appears to cover everything and I can see myself referring back to this book for reference after I have finished it.

A pleasant surprise was the inclusion of a full resource kit to carry out self skill checks, career planning, cheatsheets and much more. This has given me belief that I could actually be a software developer in the near future.

If you are not quite sure still, look at a sample to see how useful and how easy reading it is. Definitely recommend.

I have quite a lot of experience in software development and I can't think of any book that would have been as useful as this title if I read it at any point during my career.

If you follow John's work, some chapters of this book will look familiar to you. However there is something to learn regardless of your level of skills and experience as the topics covered are so thorough and wide.

This is a heavy book (the digital edition has made my Kindle heavier) so it is not the type of book you want to read cover to cover in one day. This is a guide you want to come back to every now and then to reinforce the great ideas.

Highly recommended.

As a developer with 3 years’ experience in the Software industry, I feel that my general weakness is Soft Skills so I have an appreciation for John’s work (His Simple programmer YouTube channel and his previous book on Soft Skills, which sits proudly on my desk).

There is relevant content in the book for people who are brand new to software development and people like myself who are Developers looking to push themselves to new heights in their careers. The topics I found most interesting and relevant were the ones on office politics (chapters 41-47) and the whole of section 5 which is aimed at advancing your career through various means.

This book has well defined and structured chapters that’s obviously aimed at users so they can quickly dig into each topic separately rather than read this cover to cover.

I remember when I was starting out as a Software Developer 25 years ago really just swimming around in a sea of information overload. Which direction should I take, what should I concentrate on. 25 years down the line things are probably more confusing than ever! Please don't let that put you off diving into this extremely rewarding industry, because now for the first time you have a potential framework to follow. There's something in this book for all of us, beginner and old hack alike. I don't see any other book like this in the market place, and like others have said, I wish I'd had something like this when I was starting out, I might be a super star now, rather than in the future! ;-)
