Why no "High Stakes.." on the book reviews?

Is there any reason why "High Stakes, No Prisoners" was taken off the book reviews?

It's a great book but it's not something I think every programmer HAS to read...

So can you create a book review list of "great books every programmer doesn't have to read, but might want to anyway"?

Joel,

You talk about most mangement books not being useful to Small Business, how about a list that would be useful to small business?

My friend was the accountant in Vermeer before they got bought by MS.

She was responsible for sending out the invoices.. for all 280 something copies that they actually sold before being sold for $lots. It amazed her at just how much MS paid considering they'd sold so little.

Wonder whether this still works for being bought out? Have revenue of $n,000 and be bought out for $n,000,000

And this was in the early days before things got really stupid.
