I'm almost done reading The Clean Coder: A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers by Robert C. Martin and I find myself saying things like:

  • "That's right!"
  • "Oh, damn!"
  • "So true!"

I bet my roommate thinks I'm crazy by now...

Have you experienced this lately? And if so, which book was it?

Recently, it was reading How to Make Mistakes in Python by Mike Pirnat. There were also a few times I laughed out loud, right in the waiting room where I was reading it!


Functional Programming, Simplified by Alvin Alexander. I has very short chapters that introduce simple concepts and grow from that, every time I read I said out loud something like: wow, that was simple!

Elastic Leadership by Roy Osherove. When he said "There are no experts, just us" I felt it.

The Pragmatic Programmer by Andrew Hunt and David Thomas.


Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willinks

First time I read it I nearly jumped out of my chair several times!


I'm about two chapters into "Functional Programming in Scala" and I think my most common phrase is "this is magic..."


Clean Code, The Pragmatic Programmer, and now The Imposter's Handbook!


...dang, now I want a copy of The Imposter's Handbook. Looks sooooooooo good!


I’m working my way through Capital in the 21st Century and I find myself saying “whaaaat” a lot.
