I recently read The Geek Gap, and it was really insightful. Written by a “geek” and a “suit”, it presents both sides of the Geek Gap – the distrust and misunderstanding that makes it so difficult for geeks and suits to understand what the heck each other is talking about.
The book provides insight about what motivates geeks (all pretty obvious stuff to me) and what motivates suits (fascinating! how could they *be* so weird?), and tries to convince everyone that the other folks aren’t just out to mislead and lie to them. I think I might even believe it.
Highly recommended, and a quick read.
