Hopefully, no user crosses the line in flooding a book promotion... Keep in mind, that a person (in this case, a guest of the ranch) has to try to answer your questions. Please pay some consideration for other people's time.

No problem it was just a little joke.

More seriously, yesterday I read this post : http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/001305.html in the well known coding horror blog
and the author is saying that if a candidate for a job doesn't know any of the coders in the book he won't be hired in is company. I found
this pretty extreme.

More seriously, if you have reached the level of looking for a job and haven't at least come across a book by one of those people, you may have problems.

Only 14 out of 25 threads? That is thin; we can get far more threads than that when there is a free book involved

But just to be safe, don't you think you should get my book and read it. ;-)

Would like to see more coders from the Java space like Joshua Bloch. For example Brian Goetz, Kathy Sierra, and so on
