Hello,

after having worked alot of years in software industry, I notice that the ones that are considered as highly competent and are listened too... rarely are the best developers. I find myself way too shy and I rarely speak with enough confidence to be taken seriously. I had similar problems with women that dissapeared after having read "the game" and alot of other great books in the area. Now I want the same transformation in my business life... what are the best books in this field?

thanks in advance
Asmar

Lol , the game is a scam that tells you what you want to hear.. for 17$ a copy.

Anyhow , it is normal for developers not to be listened to in management decisions for example. What are the situations that you are not listened to ?
