If you're hungry for more on the touched topics, you will find that the book provides plenty of opportunities to branch out, whether it's developing habit systems or building confidence in yourself and others.

The text artfully balances anecdotal evidence, factual data, and actionable steps, weaving a narrative that is as engaging as it is informative. It’s not just important, it’s crucial that we iterate on our own skills as managers so that we can properly support everyone around us: individuals, peers, leadership, and the business. 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. Though the book is meant to address people in management, individual contributors are welcome to read the book as well- perhaps you need to manage up and need some tools to help guide the conversation, perhaps you just want a peek at other concerns within the business- everyone is invited to the conversation. Nonetheless, the author’s choice to stick with what she knows best and her extensive experience does lend credibility to her arguments.So many challenges and learnings that helped me grow a tonne in that seemingly short period of time. This doesn’t mean you need to be an expert in every technology, but you should understand the high-level concepts and be able to make informed decisions. I checked two of those assumptions, and I'm sure anyone that checks none of them would have a great time with this reading. 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.

Additionally, the advice provided is often oversimplified and fails to address the complexities of managing teams in a rapidly changing technology landscape. Practical tips for engineering managers, distilled from the author’s extensive experience in the field. I especially felt the chapter on how to run productive meetings and how to help others perform at their best will help me in my everyday work. Leadership is challenging: where your work used to be about you and what value you brought to a team, your work is now about enabling everyone around you. It can be very tough for those of us who didn’t go into Engineering with the distinct concept that we would become managers, but still want to do our best to support our teams.

There are plenty of books you can go and read about growing a leadership mindser, or understand what outcomes you want, or your motivations. As a manager, it is crucial that you're prioritizing your own time well to best drive big impacts, and also to be aligned with what you feel is important. Throughout the pages, the author references numerous insightful articles and recommends several valuable books, including "Culture Map", "Drive", "Accelerate", and "The Happiness Advantage". Engineering for the Management for the Rest of Us is a book that will gear you up for a journey into engineering management (or honestly kind of management, frankly) by highlighting a lot of common technical aspects of the career. Engineering Management for the Rest of Us is the book I wish every one of my past managers had read.
