Joel Spolsky’s writing and opinions are evergreen, and his 2004 book The Best of Software Writing shows it.

I’ve always been jealous of Joel Spolsky for being right all the damn time. His selection of articles for “The Best of Software Writing Volume I” shows off how prescient he constantly is. This book was collects writings from 2003 and 2004, and almost every one could have been written today and be immediately relevant.

This book is available on Safari Online, which you really should consider using instead of buying books individually on Amazon all the damn time. (Do your own cost analysis, and include the fact that you’ll read more books since Safari makes it easy to read.)

Since the books contents were selected from online articles, they are all still available online, in some form or another.
