Man you have a PhD. Is this book worth reading for someone who just have basic education?

I have a PhD. The piece of paper hangs in my bathroom so I can look at it while I shit. It was a personally fulfilling experience that taught me a lot about academic research and and is almost completely divorced from the practice of software engineering management. (and most other things.. I'd suggest never being intimidated by a PhD.) The book is written on a very approachable level, I'm enjoying it so far.

Thank you, I'm pleased you think that. My PhD was in compilers anyway. I have no formal management training. :-)
