First, what sets The Secret Path To Contract Programming Riches apart from any other book on programming or consulting is that it is the only book that shows the computer hobbyist not only WHAT TO DO to become a high-paid contract programmer, but HOW TO DO IT! Some books explain what being a computer consultant is like from a day-to-day point of view and others teach you how to program in a specific language. But, no book provides a step-by-step system on how to become an absolute expert computer programmer and take that knowledge to go virtually, directly into high-paid contract programming.
- For a Special Reader -
Next, since the book is geared for a very special reader, the publisher has included a unique WARNING MESSAGE on the front cover to ensure targeting the appropriate reader and to avoid making promises to those who are not qualified for the program. "As I was writing the book, I continually narrowed the range of possible readers down to just a few categories. The people that will benefit most from this book are those that have an absolute passion for computers and have always dreamed of being expert computer programmers and/ or computer consultants, but have no idea about what it takes to be a sought-after consultant," says the book’s author, Michael Nigohosian.
- Who are the Best Computer Professionals? -
Computer hobbyists make the best computer professionals and consultants because working with computers is what they truly love to do. The Secret Path To Contract Programming Riches was written by a seasoned, expert computer consultant who started out exactly like the computer enthusiasts mentioned above and became a successful, high-paid, expert computer consultant virtually overnight using his time-proven method, Rapid Mastery Technology(TM), for rapidly mastering the art and science of studying computer programming. And the book seems to have been released at just the right time.
- At the Right Time -
Fortunately The Secret Path to Contract Programming Riches comes at the right time and with the right information. Using the same Rapid Mastery Technology(TM) developed and used by the author, the reader will be able to accelerate and concentrate the acquisition of specific industry experience, and literally become an expert. There’s little corner-cutting here. Nigohosian stresses excellence, focus and determination throughout the book. "The reader will become a ‘super learner experiencer’," says Mr. Nigohosian. The book shows the reader exactly what he or she needs to learn and how to learn it and then shows the reader exactly what type and amount of experience to get and how to get it. By the time the reader is through with the program he or she will be ready to accept a high-paid contract programming position, by-passing many of the typical steps and years of experience needed. "Ultimately, the program will make "Master Programmers" out of the participants," says Nigohosian.
- Motivational/How-To Prose -
The motivational/how-to prose gives the basics on both the IT field and the contracting work style. The best part, though, is when he tells readers how to act. The most important skill, he writes, is communications. And it's important to not think like an employee, that is, don't talk too much, don't take too many coffee breaks, don't ask, "What has the company done for me lately?" Instead, contractors should be humble, be willing to learn, do more than the client would expect, and keep in touch with their brokers. In other words, you provide a service and you must have good people skills to go along with your technical wizardry.
- Written by a Veteran Contract Programmer -
Veteran programmer/consultant M.F. Nigohosian shares, for the first time, his secrets of rapid mastery of computer programming and his more than a decade of computer consulting experience through his simple yet practical new system that can be the most important breakthrough in a computer lover’s life!
