I ordered this book and got it yesterday. For the first time in memory I read the whole thing in less than 24 hours. It answers the real questions, which aren't whether to learn Ruby or Scala or more Java, but rather how do you make yourself into a great programmer. Or at least suggests some of the questions you should be asking yourself. It seems like a lot to do, but you don't have to swallow the elephant at once. Just pick out one or two things to start work on this week, then do others as time and inspiration allow. Even doing one or two will make you a better programmer, and not off in the nebulous future either. Right now. Dave is correct, it is a GREAT book! Read it.
