Good content, a little dry approach.

Covers consulting from many angles good content, could have been more lively. Agree with content, and found to be valuable - people young in the career could benefit it more than seasoned developer/consultants

Great insights for any professional

I believe the book has great insights for any professional in any field. I also believe that the many examples that the book includes help us to provide a broad point if view about the pitfall and challenges any consultant will face. However I perceived too long, with too many details, some of those examples/stories.

Excellent Book for Developers - Consultant or Not

What did you love best about The Nomadic Developer?

I really like the real world stories from the author and the other developers he interviewed. It's good to hear that others have gone through the same trials and made mistakes along the way.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Nomadic Developer?

When they related stories of projects gone wrong or things they look back on that they could have done better.

Any additional comments?

Great book. I'm glad you put this on Audible.

Good knowledge for technical consulting

If you could sum up The Nomadic Developer in three words, what would they be?

Professional Knowledge Development

Who was your favorite character and why?

I found some of the archtypes given fairly humorous. "Bozo" consulting had me picturing a clown with a requirements chart.

What does Stow Lovejoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The ability to go through the information rapidly and continuously without my eyes getting tired or hyperfocused.

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

The book wasn't exacly a thriller, so the experience wasn't exactly moving. However, the learning experience was thorough and understandable.

Any additional comments?

A very good book for building knowledge for individual consulting, consulting on teams, or with a business. Also, an understanding of various businesses in the software development industry is built on, along with tips for individuals that could be relevant in any technical job.
