Soft Skills Book Series

As a believer in the principles of the ALT.NET movement I believe in continuous analysis of myself and how I am doing my job.  Over time this and discussions with other have lead me to believe that as time progresses one of the most fundamental abilities a Software Developer needs to have is the ability to deal with people.  This concept called “Soft Skills” has become critical to us in our daily work. 

Now the problem for me is that like a lot of developers out there I wouldn’t exactly call myself a fountain of soft skill information.  With that in mind I started to gather a list of books that I felt could help me in my goal of improving my soft skills.  Recently I was asked to share this list and so I started to try to create a single blog post that would do so.  I’ve come to realize that this was either going to lead to a massive blog post that nobody in their right mind would ever read, or I would have to limit myself greatly in discussing each book. 

With that in mind I’ve instead decided that this discussion is better served through a series of blog posts where I can try and discuss each book and the value I’ve gained from it (if any).  I plan on keeping each post fairly short and this post is starting to break that goal so I’m going to end it and get started on my first book post.
