"Like I said in January, the book brought back memories of the first few years of my career. Obviously the details are different, but if my kids ever ask about the beginning of my career I'll point them to your book first. You did an excellent job capturing the spirit of commercial software development."
I re-skimmed the book last night (setting aside a brand-new copy of C.J. Date's Database in Depth, ironically enough), and it still seems relevant, six months after the initial read. That's always a good sign.
