But this book has not aged as well as, say "Mythical Man Month" or "Death March". Don't get me wrong - I am giving it 4 stars because it is still full of excellent material; you just need other, more 'modern' references to help give this book perspective. With the proper perspective, this book really helps explain "The more things change, the more they stay the same", something that is often forgotten in this fast moving field.
The context that this book needs today is that of a given 'methodology', whether that be Extreme Programming, Scrum, Unified Process, or CMMi. If you don't have a model in mind, I would start with the book "Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices", by Robert Martin.
While following a reading of this book this reviewer still recommends "Software Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art" by Steve McConnell (see my review) as the best overall project estimation text, what is appealing to this Six Sigma practitioner are the metrics presented throughout this text even though McConnell indicates that many of the early metrics that are still being referenced within the industry were harvested from large government projects.Read more ›
