Like thinking about Systems? Like Douglas Adams? Read Systemantics

I’m reading “Systemantics” by John Gall and find myself at times laughing to myself and at times wretching in scenarios I recognize all too well in my work. His humor, which is straight out of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy”, helps with the pain. This might end up next to “The Mythical Man-Month” on my bookshelf and as a book I recommend to any coder looking to to progress from simply writing code, to solving problems.
