Getting Real

I've been reading reviews and kudos about 37signals' book, Getting Real, and so I bought and downloaded the PDF book yesterday.After spending a good half hour wrestling with my laser printer trying to figure out how to feed the paper properly to print in duplex as it doesn't have an automatic duplexing unit, I got the whole 171-page book printed out. Much as I am used to reading on-screen, a book of that size would be a bit much to handle. From what I've heard, although the book refers to 37signals' own processes in developing web-based applications, a lot of the principles and techniques are applicable to other design jobs, and even in a non-design, corporate environment. I've been a fan of their work ever since I found their site and read their manifesto. I'll let you know my take on the book when I'm done with it.
