Based on Jon Katz’s review, 21 Dog Years: Doing Time @ (by Mike Daisey) seems like a reasonably interesting book. Unfortunately, despite the fact that Katz obsessively talks about geeks in his review, it doesn’t seem like the book covers the software development side of Amazon at all. That’s unsurprising given that the book’s author isn’t a programmer and started out as a customer service rep. Those of us who were there first hand to witness the expansion of the dot com bubble will probably read the book nodding grimly rather than recoiling in shock, but hopefully there are a few laughs to be had along the way. Maybe I’ll go order the book from Amazon right now. (Update: I wound up ordering this book from today.)
