Comparison with other books

Jacquie,

Let me start by saying that I was a "technical reviewer" for a different techie career book and provided the author with feedback prior to its publication earlier this year.

Without promoting that book, I'm curious about how Taming the Technology Tidal Wave compares to other books addressing career advice for techies?

I suspect it's difficult do a comparison without using specific names, but from the reviews of your book on amazon and what I was able to read on your web site your book looks pretty interesting, so I'd really like to know. Is there a "sample chapter" or something similar available?


Thanks,
Burk

Jacquie,
I read the only thread I saw with that title, https://coderanch.com/t/471354/Jobs-Discussion/careers/Taming-Technology-Tidal-Wave-Practical, but didn't see anything about how your book compares with techie career books. Am I looking in the right place?
