If you like Dilbert books and are in IT, you'll probably really like this. Even if you aren't but are a fan of Parkinson, Peter (it assumes you've read or are familiar with the Peter Principle), etc or even some of the more conventional management types like Taylor you'll probably find the book enjoyable and even mildly useful, though not as useful as the Dilbert books (which are surprisingly dead on most of the time) or, of course, nowhere near as useful as Taylor.

The book has some very humorous anecdotes designed to show how "competence inversion" exists in technological companies and how to get ahead. It's fairly vague on the second part. Well that is, except for the time-honored recommendation of passing the blame off to someone else or "Anyone else who can be blamed should be blamed". Putt's Ploy is good too - "If you must fail, fail big."

Recommended. If you've heard of the book, you're probably the intended audience. People outside IT, engineering, or Fortune 500 environments will likely be as baffled as those in these fields are amused.

This book tells what goes on in the real world of products involving technical know-how. In many ways it applies across all business enterprises. Putt's Law and its corollary hit the nail on the head.

Still priceless, should be required reading for all STEM majors.
Scream_I LOVE YOU
It must be taught as a course to STEM undergrad freshmen. Too bad that most won't heed it until midlife when a change of profession is out of question.

I have cherished the memory of those original Putt's Law Research/Development Magazine articles ever since the mid 1970's. Imagine my surprise and delight to discover that the Putt's Law techn-wisdom of the ages was revised, extended, and made widely available in this book. No pointy-headed PHDs; no dry analysis; no go-go pop psychology; no insufferable self-help tome here! Just real observations that bring simultaneous deep chuckles and bitter-sweet memories. Damn, ain't the unvarnished truth a hoot sometimes?

Not really what is was hyped to be, but VERY informative from my perspective being a technologist.

I bought this for my husband, he thinks it is a great book. I even read soem ofit and found it hard to put down.
Putt's Law is a disturbingly accurate description of organizations involved in high technology.
Still trying to find a way to get an exemption from Putt's Law ...
