I bought this. Disappointed; didn't really get a good look at their allegedly brilliantly designed office space - the programmers seemed to work in a bullpen rather in the single offices with "light coming in from both sides." And it was almost all "look at how quirky these guys are; they grow tomatoes and put aluminum foil on their windows and argue about whether they could jump to the roof of the next building" (left me wondering when they actually find time to code) and very little "here's how we develop projects at Fog Creek." So I couldn't recommend it.
One little detail I liked - one of the first things they did was hand each intern a stack of books. It looked like maybe $200 worth of books per person. Why didn't I think of that? I suppose I've always assumed that if I did do something like that with new hires, the books would never get read anyhow.
What I'd really like to do is digest that material; take the chapters and paragraphs I thought were truly important and combine them into one "this is how I'd like to see us do things here" document. Ideally under 100 pages total. And then I wouldn't feel too bad about forcing everyone to read it.
Of course, some people learn better from hearing than reading. I'm not one of them, but I can see the need for some way to reach the others.
