Sundry matters -- books, experience with other developers

Been thinking of getting some books on programming topics and the like, but just realised that the only brick-and-mortar shop that I know about which sells these is closed, that's a downer. Will probably have to get the books from Amazon or something.

These couple of weeks I've been liaising with some third-party developers working with my employer, and I've come to notice something: it is really easy for a developer to have an incomplete understanding of a client's requirements. That's one point right there for the whole Agile concept of releasing often and getting regular feedback from the users. A developer, even with the best of intentions, can way too easily miss out nuances in the users' requirements. There is, therefore, benefit to having the users see developed products and then giving feedback often rather than putting in too much time upfront trying to get "complete" requirements.
