あらすじ・解説

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.

Should be called a developers roadmap to success!

Where does Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my favorite audio book. I refer back to it often and glean new information each time.

What other book might you compare Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual to and why?

There are certain elements that remind me of How to win friends and influence people. It would however be unfair to both books to make the direct comparison because John Sonmez doesn't give the amount of anecdotal information on human interactions that Dale Carnegie does and "How to win friends and influence people" certainly doesn't cover as many topics that Soft Skills does.

Which character – as performed by John Sonmez – was your favorite?

N/A

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The chapters on Nutrition and Physical Fitness. As programmers we work very sedentary jobs at times and this is an area where we could all use a helping hand.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book to all my friends, new programmers as well as non-programmers. If you are considering it I promise you won't be disappointed.

Ended Up being a great motivator

Where does Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have only listened to 3 audio books so far, but have to say it will probably always rank in the top half of audio books I have and will listen to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual?

Treat your development career as a business. Fight for the pay you deserve and don't take the easy way out.

Have you listened to any of John Sonmez’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I believe this is the only book he has narrated. Having listened to his podcasts his performance was better then I had expected. He is a bit nasally, which I thought would grate on me but it didn't at all. The only thing I think could have been improved would be the transition between chapters and transition between narration and explanation of the text.

What did you learn from Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual that you would use in your daily life?

I wont be taking a jump to leave my job right away without having a plan and traction on my ideas.

Any additional comments?

I will admit it, I thought I was going to hate the book before even downloading it, and that I had just wasted my money. Within the first hour of listening there was actionable advise from John which I am working on applying to my life right now.
I was feeling pretty crappy before reading this book which is in part why I had started listening to motivational books. My feeling was that I was working in a dead end job with high churn and if I went off on my own and made my own company I would just fail and be stuck crawling back to a big company. Anyway it seems that John has lived the life I feared living and made it through to the other side. My one wish is that he would have dived deeper into real estate investing.

A new life manual for any software developer

Just being new to the development world, I wad a bit hesitant when I was recommended to buy a software development book thats not really about software development.
But after getting into the book I completely understood John and his reasons for writing this book, there is a need for it and not enough people are preaching self development in these sort of areas (I come from a mechanical engineering background). He hits the nail on the head on so many topics and his style of writing many small chapters worked a treat as I could small chunk the information in my spare time. He teaches you ways to market yourself, to stay fit, how to handle your finances, how to see yourself as a different person and grow into that person. His background in Software development gave him a great foundation as he could easily convey how he gets his work done and how we can too.
Im excited for a few months time when I relisten to this book and see what else I get from it.
Hes inspired me to write my own blog and Im currently doing his email course on blogging. So hopefully we can connect sometime in the future.

Junior to senior developers should read this

This book is great listen for software developers from junior to senior level. It's probably one of the rare books on software development you can listen to and not read it.
I've been a software developer for almost 15 years and this book gave me a lot if ideas for next 15 years.

John Sonmez is a wizard

This is probably my favorite book about overall life skills. The concepts not only software developers, but to anyone who wants to develop more of a bulldog mindset.

Love the topic and how it was delivered

The topic reflects and clearly explained the reality in the IT world. I love how the author shared his own experiences and manage to navigate around the broad spectrum.

General good living advice.

Software developer? No, this book is by far, much more general than that. Anyone can read this, and gain insight into building good habits, and progressing upwards through life.

Topics such as job interviews, tertiary education being ineffective and fitness are discussed in enough detail so that one may begin to measure the depth of their own ignorance.

This is the kind of book someone aged 17-28 could really use, if they had no idea how to go about being an adult, with a job and responsibilities.

John Sonmez is very passionate about everything in his life, which leads his reading of his own book to break into dozens of tangents. This is frustrating at times, but ultimately beneficial due to the extra dense content he adds.

John also cites a lot of references to back up statements. Dozens of other books, links to websites containing studies and statistics make for very solid information. This is unique in the self help genre.

I recommend it to anyone willing to self improve as the entry book.

Have you ever caught a passionate teacher after class, and stood there just listening to him try unwind 20 years of experience about something in one go?

Yeah, it's that.

Well rounded book

I really enjoyed this book. I love how it's not just focused on programming but it's a tasting platter of all the things you need to become a successful, well rounded person.

Just sucks that the audio quality sounds like it was recorded in a toilet. It's got a bit of echo.
