Dreaming in Code: Two Dozen Programmers, Three Years, 4,732 Bugs, and One Quest for Transcendent Software

Dreaming in Code: Two Dozen Programmers, Three Years, 4,732 Bugs, and One Quest for Transcendent Software - Scott Rosenberg I'm bailing on it before getting halfway through. It's not a bad book, it's just not holding my attention. The story is interrupted too many times with tangential information and the plot hasn't captured my imagination; maybe it's not supposed to. I guess since I live half the stuff in this book every day it's just not enjoyable reading about it when I'm not at work.
