You can check out the table of contents here , or read the first chapter of the book for free here. The official launch will either be at the end of the year or early next year. I also wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who read this blog and are part of the Simple Programmer community. I sincerely hope this book is a book that helps you to not just get a better job, but to be happier and more productive in your career. My goal with Soft Skills was to create a book that would be applicable to all software developers, regardless of experience level, technology choice or anything else.
