Sarah Drasner’s “Engineering Management for the Rest of Us” is a practical and easy-to-read guide to the world of managing engineers. Part of the job I learned from my peers, part of it from books I read over the years, but most of the time I improvised as I went, inspired by former managers I admire the most and guided by my very own idea of what good management looks like.

She also takes care to include practical strategies for navigating these challenges, making the book a potential treasure trove for new and experienced managers alike.I read it slowly but with great attention, took lots of notes and pondered over it, went back and forth, reread specific sections when they were particularly relevant to me. I would strongly recommend this book not just for engineering managemers but for Individual contributors as well. It’s imperative that we as managers learn as much as we can and work on ourselves, so that our teams may enjoy a healthy working life and strong relationships.

Additionally, the advice provided is often oversimplified and fails to address the complexities of managing teams in a rapidly changing technology landscape. This book provided me with a clear framework for understanding and improving my role as a leader within my organization.It's in a "compendium"-ish style - it couldn't have been in another way - it jumps from one topic to another, explaining the gist of the topic; with references to contemporary books specialized on different leadership topics. Have you ever heard the phrase " when you think you're 90% of the way there, you're really only halfway there. He not only knew the author but also reads profusely so I knew the recommendation was going to be good.

To people who have the same aspirations in engineering management I'd encourage you to read this instead https://abseil. It provides great insight into how it is to be an engineering manager and Sarah tells her own stories and shares what she has learned. Ideas around understanding team members values, motivating team members, encouraging collaboration, managing conflict, working with management, managing yourself and so on are well-thought out and placed in the book. She also provides tips and tricks for how to reduce the risk of running into the problems that she has had to deal with in her career.I've been in my software engineering manager role for a couple of years only, yet it feels like it's been much, much longer than that.

I later had the best manager I ever had and that was life changing for me, I started looking at this person as my friend, imagine the level of trust.The strength of the book lies in its practicality; Drasner does not shy away from addressing common issues encountered in the field of engineering management. This includes recognizing their struggles, supporting them through challenges, and celebrating their successes. Very readable and thoughtful guide for new team leads and managers with references for further reading. A lot of Engineering Managers and leaders studied for years and years to become the best Engineer they possibly could be.
