For most software developers, coding is the fun part. The hard bits are dealing with clients, peers, and managers and staying productive, achieving financial security, keeping yourself in shape, and finding true love. This book is here to help.
Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual is a guide to a well-rounded, satisfying life as a technology professional. In it, developer and life coach John Sonmez offers advice to developers on important subjects like career and productivity, personal finance and investing, and even fitness and relationships. Arranged as a collection of 71 short chapters, this fun listen invites you to dip in wherever you like. A "Taking Action" section at the end of each chapter tells you how to get quick results. Soft Skills will help make you a better programmer, a more valuable employee, and a happier, healthier person.

Should be called a developers roadmap to success!
This is my favorite audio book. I refer back to it often and glean new information each time.
There are certain elements that remind me of How to win friends and influence people. It would however be unfair to both books to make the direct comparison because John Sonmez doesn't give the amount of anecdotal information on human interactions that Dale Carnegie does and "How to win friends and influence people" certainly doesn't cover as many topics that Soft Skills does.
The chapters on Nutrition and Physical Fitness. As programmers we work very sedentary jobs at times and this is an area where we could all use a helping hand.
I recommend this book to all my friends, new programmers as well as non-programmers. If you are considering it I promise you won't be disappointed.
