From the Back Cover

A ground-breaking new approach to practical systems requirements management. . .Here is the first book to offer a practical way to identify systems requirements and manage them when budgets and schedules are tight. It describes a process that leads from fuzzy, ill-defined requirements that can be modeled and prototyped. Managing Systems Requirements presents methods for communicating requirements and achieving buy-in from system users and owners before expensive programming begins. There are techniques, tools, and software suggestions for project managers and systems analysts, plus case studies that illustrate how the whole requirements gathering process works. The cornerstone of the book is its practicality; it combines in one place a suite of methods, templates, off-the-shelf computer-based tools, and real-world examples that software developers can use to get a handle on software requirements and solve the problems they face every day on the job. IS managers, system project managers, systems analysts, and programmers will find the book indispensable and value how it integrates technical methods with organizational realities.

Format: Hardcover
I read this book about a year ago. I had some interesting areas and some descriptions of tools that apply to different segments of the SDLC and span many platforms.
I think it unwise that this site lets people who admittedly haven't read the book to review it. I take these reviews seriously because these book are well - expensive. I don't want to throw my money away. I gave it 5 stars to average it out to what it should be.
The book explains the different segments of requirements gathering. It describes the basics of what to do, not how to do it. There are other books on the subject that are better at that. However, it is interesting and has some good ideas withing it. Most of it is common sense that you probrably already know, but there are a few topic within that are worth reading. I give it 3 stars.
