Book Draft Reviews

I have always been an avid reader who – before kids – would easily read 10.000 pages/year of non fictional books. I now have less time, but I’m still available to provide contributions to early drafts.

Among books I’ve reviewed there’s been “More Effective Agile“. It seems like my review has been perceived as useful by the author, Steve McConnell, who’s been a great source of inspiration throughout my career.

Feel free to get in touch, or directly send me a copy of your early draft if you think I can provide help.
