It really has been a great year for Dreaming in Code — many thanks to all of you who helped make it so. The book started off with a rush of interest sparked by Joel Spolsky; I got to present the book to interested crowds at Yahoo, Microsoft and Google, and talk about it on a bunch of radio shows; and sales of the book held steady all year.
Now it’s the season of year-end lists, and my book has turned up on the Chicago Tribune’s list of “Our Favorite Books of 2007”. Some kind bloggers have also put it on their year-end lists — I’m grateful.
I’m also happy to have received a detailed and thoughtful write-up by Michael Schrage, the longtime technology columnist and commentator, who selected Dreaming for his list of favorite books of 2007 in Strategy and Business.
The paperback is due out in February, with a new epilogue, taking the Chandler story further down its still open road.
And, yes, there’s another book in the works where that one came from. I should be posting more about it pretty soon now…
