Sarah Drasner’s “Engineering Management for the Rest of Us” is a practical and easy-to-read guide to the world of managing engineers. I’m sharing what I’ve learned- not so that you follow my concepts exactly, but rather so that you can be thoughtful about your own leadership and needs. I picked up the book because my mentor recommended it to me after I told him about my promotion at work.

Drasner suggests that engineering managers should not only accept change but also strive to be change catalysts, leading their teams through transformations effectively. The strength of the book lies in its practicality; Drasner does not shy away from addressing common issues encountered in the field of engineering management. By Sarah Drasner’s reckoning, the world of engineering management is riddled with intricacies that often fly under the radar.She invites us to self-reflect on how we want to lead and support our team(s), in a healthy and sustainable fashion, while keeping our sanity. I've been in my software engineering manager role for a couple of years only, yet it feels like it's been much, much longer than that. The last part however didn't feel relevant to engineering management, but rather, her offering on self-help which had the flavor of a glass of water. This includes clearly articulating project goals, giving precise instructions, providing constructive feedback, and maintaining an open line of communication with team members. In conclusion, Drasner’s book offers a pragmatic guide to the often-overlooked intricacies of engineering management.

I loved it, it opened my appetite for rethinking my schedule and becoming more intentional with my team. I wrote this book because there’s so much no one told me about management that I wished I would have known. I was hoping for heavy nugget of wisdom or war stories on the topics I'm struggling with in my few months acting as EM but it's hard to get there on a book covering so much.The text artfully balances anecdotal evidence, factual data, and actionable steps, weaving a narrative that is as engaging as it is informative.
