Another good book from the Pragmatic Programmers. It's amazing how much reading about good attitude actually influences me to have a good attitude. The week I read this, I was about as productive as I could hope to be. Read full review
This book is not about India, it’s about you.The main idea of this book is that you should see your carrier as a product. So, as with any product your carrier should have a life cycle:
* choose your market
* invest into your product (career)
* market your product
