Pros: Touches things often forgotten
Cons: It's a bit lengthy

I think that in a time where many of us get tangled up in the technicalities of IT jobs the ethics are often forgotten. And this book is a bit of an eye-opener in this respect, it touches a wide range of topics where conflicts of interest may arise or where certain practice may be questionable. Interestingly the author takes a stance of comparing the "conservative" with a "liberal" one in all questions.
