Message from "Jerry Weinberg"

ワインバーグ先生ことGerald M. Weinberg氏から日本の愛読者にメッセージをいただきました。

okdt: My most favorite is the Orange Juice Test(オレンジジューステスト), I have tried so many oppotunity to make my business. Due to your special “law”, my office is getting very unique to deal with the professional consulting of the open source software security with my high motivated staff.

So I would like to say thank you very much.

Jerry: And I will pass on your thanks to the people who taught me the Orange Juice Test. I, too, have used it to have a profound effect on my business.

okdt: Last year, I made the free maling list for your book lovers, called “Weinbergers” as the follow: (sorry, in Japanese)…

Jerry: I am honored. I looked at the site, and it is very well laid out.

Unfortunately, Japanese is not one of the languages I can read.

okdt: Would you kindly give me a message for the mailing list members and your book readers in Japan?

Jerry: I would be happy to.

I am honored and humbled to know of my many readers in Japan. I owe a great debt of gratitude to Professor Izumi Kimura and my other translators. I’m sure the books are much better in Japanese than in English.

If I were to give advice to a young professional starting out in the world, I could do no better than quote three Japanese proverbs:

We learn little from victory, much from defeat.

So, do not think in terms of Win or Lose, because you cannot always win.

Think instead of Learn, for Win or Lose, you can always learn.

Even a thief takes ten years to learn his trade.

There is no quick road to success. Be prepared to persist through some hard times, and you will outlast your competitors who burn themselves out with too quick a start.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Take my books, and the books of others, as if they were tempting meals.

Taste everything, but swallow only what tastes right to you.

Once again, thank you for reading my books. Teachers open the door. You enter by yourself.

Very best regards,


One who has attained mastery of an art reveals it in their every action. — Samurai Maxim
