If you are reading this article in the paper version of Tech Decisions, rather than online, you know that you received a book in addition to the regular magazine this month. I hope and trust that you opened the book, read if from cover to cover in one sitting, and are now basking in the intellectual glow of the insights and humor you just consumed.

The book of course is “Shop Talk,” which was recently published in conjunction with  and its parent company, Summit Business Media. The contents of the book are five-plus years worth of articles from this column grouped by subject area.

The production costs of the book, which were substantial, were paid for by the following sponsors, to whom I am very grateful: CSC, Guidewire, Insurity, ISCS, MajescoMastek, Maple Technologies, Millbrook, OneShield and Unirisx. I am, of course, proud and pleased that these articles have been published in book form. For over five years I have tried to put useful content and practical advice into these articles with the intent of giving back to the industry that has provided me with a professional home for most of my career.
