The story is really just talking about the pit falls of a big coding project. If you've ever undertaken one of your own you can skip this book. I had high hopes for it but was left underwhelmed.

What made the experience of listening to Dreaming in Code the most enjoyable?
This book will make any programmer who's worked on professional projects realize if he or she didn't know already... you are not alone. This book "gets it." and gets it in a way that's entertaining for the most part and gives just enough detail to make sense even to the non-programmer.
What did you like best about this story?
The slid in explanations of computer science concepts as they pertain to the story.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
His voice is a little harsh sometimes. He wouldn't be a good smooth jazz dj let's just say.

I really enjoyed this book. It gives quite an insight into software development in a particular stage in the evolution of this internet that remains pretty familiar today. It's a history lesson, a lesson in product design and an overview of what underpins things like Agile. Probably (definitely) not for everyone but this is one I couldn't stop listening to.

I'm a programmer so it's not easy for me to put my self in the lay persons shoes, but this book feels like it does a good job of explaining why you're software crashes to a non-technical audience.

The story was extremely interesting and valuable from a software development perspective, however the story itself was boring to listen to. For example, when characters in the book are excited or frustrated, the author just tells you that they're excited or frustrated, but doesn't succeed in making the listener feel that excitement or frustration for themselves. I wanted to 'feel' the story, not just hear it.
