The Must Read Book Of The Summer

archived comments edit

Jim Holmes and James Avery announced that their new book Windows Developer Power Tools is going to be published in November.

Since I haven’t read the book yet, I cannot claim it will absolutely be the must read book of the summer. But I have a good feeling about this one for some reason.

Ok. Ok. I admit, I am biased because I am a contributor. Take a look at the table of contents here. My contributions are in Chapter 11, “Accessing Subversion and CVS with TortoiseSVN/CVS” as well as in Chapter 13 where I wrote about one of my favorite topics, Subtext.

I also reviewed the chapter on MbUnit with Andrew Stopford.

Having seen a couple other draft chapters, I am really excited about this book and not just because I contributed. Open source projects can be notorious for lacking in documentation. I can’t be sure, but I imagine that this book may be the impetus for some of these projects to actually write some documentation. But I am going out on a limb by saying that.

My contribution to this book is much more significant and original than my pseudo-contribution to another book this year.
