Quite some time ago I reviewed a manuscript for Raymond Chen’s new book “The Old New Thing”.

Now if you don’t know who Raymond Chen is (which means you’re probably not in software development), he’s been at Microsoft for a really long time and is often the smartest guy in the room.

So I got a pre release copy of the book. It’s part technical education, part Microsoft Products history and part geek entertainment.

It’s fun to read and full of great info and anecdotes about the development of Microsoft’s products.

I highly recommend it.
