        Isaac's book is a really interesting read. The way he blends historical tales with current software development challenges is really engaging, even if you're not a software developer. The work draws simple, easy to comprehend analogies that are applicable to management in more than just software development. The pieces are statements on leadership in general and how to maximize output through making the right decisions.
