I ve just finished reading the best computer book [Why Software Sucks...] since I last
re-read one of mine and I wanted to pass along the good word. . . . Put this one on your must-have
list if you have software, love software, hate programmers, or even ARE a programmer, because Mr.
Platt who teaches programming has set out to puncture the bloated egos of all those who think that
just because they can write a program, they can make it easy to use. . . . This book is funny, but
it is also an important wake-up call for software companies that want to reduce the size of their
customer support bills. If you were ever stuck for an answer to the question, Why do good
programmers make such awful software? this book holds the answer.
