There are three books.

Managing Humans was first published in June 2007. While much of the content originated on this weblog, every chapter has been meticulously rewritten and edited. In July 2016, I published the third edition of the book, which added eight new chapters and removed two embarrassing chapters. The glossary is still my favorite part of this work. The fourth edition comes out next year.

There’s a promotional website for the book, which you should probably check out. We don’t really do these anymore, do we?

Being Geek was published in August 2012 with O’Reilly. This book features many of the articles on the weblog,, but also features more original content than the first book.

Small Things, Done Well was June of 2020. Like the prior books, some of the content has already shown up here, but this book is special. There is a full arc and an autobiographical angle that I love.
