    "This book might not seem like the best option because it is a bit dated, but I still found it very useful to read. It is a long read but covers various topics that cover the dynamics that are often at play with software development projects."

    "As a amature coder I was looking for something other than my usual online resources to get better and learn more. My boss suggested reading Code Complete. Code Complete helped me think about the way I code differently. I found it inciteful. I am really glad I read it. I thanked my boss for suggesting it."
