The Business of Software

I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and read it straight through, but I really like the chapters I've jumped between in Eric Sink on the Business of Software. His writing style is very accessible and I have no trouble sprinting through a dozen pages or more when I do get a chance. I even think I see some of Joel Spolsky's influence in how the book is organized.

I've been dreaming of my own business for quite a while now, and this book has revealed topics I hadn't before considered. I'm not going to be hiring employees just yet, but I did take a hard look in the mirror after reading about what to look for in a good developer. Being the sole developer is even harder as I must continue to set and meet my own deadlines.
