Hi,
Is this book similar to the "The Pragmatic Programmer"?
Or something very different?

Very different. 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know is made up of 97 short items from 73 contributors, each offering a particular slice of perspective or view on a topic. Whereas The Pragmatic Programmer is intended to be a unified and tightly bound work with a single interlocking narrative, 97 Things is much more a sampler and collection of practices and tips told from different points of view.

Hope that helps!
