Amazon Reviews - What They’ve Said (Back to top)

“But I soon realized that Vinay's genius is to explain technical details very quickly. This isn't a dumbed-down, overly superficial summary; it's a cheat sheet for people in positions of authority who should understand the technical aspects of Internet development, but don't.”

“The book is a quick read and will give any interested reader a basic primer on internet technology and build processes.”

“As a finance student trying to learn more about the tech sector, this book serves as a great primer.”

“If you are looking for a book for dummies, this is the one. Explanations are simple and easy for anyone.”

“great primer. this book offers the right level of detail across the right scope to orient the non-technical reader.”

“I absolutely love this book. It was recommended to me when I was talking to a programmer about specific issues I was having. I've read the thing twice already and refer back to it a lot. For anyone who needs to understand tech lingo and concepts in lay terms there is no better reference. Your "tech anxiety" will be cured.”

“I was searching for an easy to understand book explaining some basic tech/internet concepts, and I came across "How to Speak Tech" in the "Suggested Reading" view. I had an interview with a tech company (non-technical position, of course) a few weeks ago, and had wanted to learn some basics about technology. It definitely helped me be a more competitive candidate during the interview.

“I highly recommend this book!”

“If you're thinking about building a technical product, whether website or app, How to Speak Tech will teach you the concepts you need to know, the terms to speak intelligently, and the ability to build the right team to get it all done.”

Upon reading it, I was thoroughly impressed by Trivedi's ability to simplify complex concepts. I haven't read any authors who explained Cloud computing and Databases as well as you did. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy to read book to brush up on their tech knowledge!”

“Really helpful for understanding tech language as a non tech person.”

“Trivedi's eloquent yet casual way of explaining complex concepts like databases, APIs, front end frameworks, and more makes it easy for anyone to pick up and read. Technology no longer is in the hands of few. It is now a part of everyone's daily lives and saying up-to-date has never been more important. This book is an easy, quick way to get you up to speed.”
