I’ve just recently purchased the book Soft Skills by John Sonmez. I have already been following John’s podcasts and I’ve heard him on .NET Rocks as well as taken his course on PluralSight. His insight is very helpful. Some of his ideas comes from a lot of the same books that I have read in the past – like How To Win Friends And Influence People.
The chapters are short enough to read in less than 15 minutes but provide a lot of useful information. And at the end of each chapter are some actions he recommends.
Basically, the book is about the premise that there is more to being a developer than writing code. Although I have little to say in a blog and find it difficult to put my thoughts down in writing, his articles and this book are motivating me to step out of my comfort zone.
