For most software developers, coding is the fun part. The hard bits are dealing with clients, peers, and managers and staying productive, achieving financial security, keeping yourself in shape, and finding true love. This book is here to help.
Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual is a guide to a well-rounded, satisfying life as a technology professional. In it, developer and life coach John Sonmez offers advice to developers on important subjects like career and productivity, personal finance and investing, and even fitness and relationships. Arranged as a collection of 71 short chapters, this fun listen invites you to dip in wherever you like. A "Taking Action" section at the end of each chapter tells you how to get quick results. Soft Skills will help make you a better programmer, a more valuable employee, and a happier, healthier person.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

One of the "listen to this to be more successful" books, no different from all the other BS self-help books. It even starts out with typical webinar-style self-advertising a la: "Do you want to become a respected and financially software developer? Do you want to be better and different from the other software developers who fail to be as smart as you about their career? Here's the 10-step plan to definitely becoming rich."

John seems to have had some career success with real estate investing, but the book has no useful information for software developers.

Eat healthy, exercise, work hard, network, blah blah, pretty obvious stuff that has nothing to do with engineering; with no actionable suggestions.

The contents of this book are pretty much what you'd get as an answer from a successful person if you ask them why they've been successful; it doesn't help you in any way except that you now know they get up early, hit the gym, etc.

I also hate his voice and reading but that may be a purely personal preference.

I think ask the things are important for anyone in the tech industry and not just Software engineers. This book would've been to hard for me to read myself but Jon has kept me engaged throughout. Well done.
