Even if you were the brilliant and disciplined programmer still a month ago and have suddenly appeared as the manager, hardly you know with what it is necessary to begin, what to select style of the manual how to employ and dismiss employees, to hold meetings, to achieve timely execution of tasks. In that case to you not to do without this book. And maybe, you — the experienced manager wishing to review the principles of leadership? Then, besides, this book for you. Regardless of age, sex and the social status it will help you to strengthen the positions as the leader of programmers. Material is stated quite compactly and easily goes in.

It is much heavier to promote the programmer, than it is simple to be him. Specific mentality, ability to think abstractly, the developed logic it is not enough, the main thing — to understand that work it not only way of earning money.

Heroes of the book profess different views, treat different social groups, can operate with millions of dollars, to be heroes of glamourous parties or simple office sloggers programmers. Ability to use the enthusiasm, passion and love to profession as the lever allowing to reach essentially new tops in development of and the business integrates these people.
