Microsoft in the Mirror
|Email weblog link|
It's called Microsoft in the Mirror and contains the personal reflections of about two-dozen ex-Microsoft employees bracketed by the story of editor Karin Carter, who was also an employee at Microsoft. The stories paint a broad picture of what it was like working at Microsoft at jobs ranging from programmer to secretary. Some of the writers look back on Microsoft as the best time in their lives; others hated it. But all of them were deeply affected by their experience working there and grew as individuals in different ways.
Microsoft in the Mirror is a terrific read and is both entertaining and illuminating--I couldn't put it down, and neither could my wife (who is definitely *not* a programmer). The book is available directly from the publisher Pennington Books for US$14.95 or you can order it from Amazon if you prefer.
