Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Zero-defect software is the Holy Grail of all software developers. It has proved to be an elusive goal - until now. The Inspection techniques illustrated in this book have brought clear benefits in terms of lower (or even zero) defects, higher productivity, better project tracking and improved documentation.

Format: Paperback
I was impressed by this book, it ranks up there with Code Complete and Mythical Man Month.

Two very minor grumbles, the repetition and occasional over trivial advice, but don't let that put you off.

The advice is aimed at those willing to make a long term investment in improving software quality.

It is easy to read and is full of supporting numbers and real case studies.

Format: Paperback
I wholeheartedly recommend this text to anyone who want to get a thorough introduction to the topic of Software Inspection. I also recommend it to those who are already practicing Inspections or even old-fashioned "Walkthroughs" or "Peer Reviews".
Everyone can learn from this book. Indeed, this is book we use when teaching Inspection at Odegard Labs.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Matthew D Edwards on November 29, 2007
Format: Paperback
Systematic thought regarding human behavior and software inspection. This is a heavier weight text that requires a little experience prior to understanding the context of why you care. That being said, it has always been one of my favorites in terms of helping one understand the value of inspection, the method, context and timing. Is inspection right in every situation and so forth? No, of course not. Do you want a clue? Yes. This book competes quite nicely with something else called the "Fagan Inspection" method by Michael Fagan .. and is cheaper to acquire and apply.

Compared to "Peer Reviews in Software: A Practical Guide" or "Best Kept Secrets of Code Review", this one was a bit dry. The others were a good read and I would recommend them over this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a heavy ponderous tome; very likely outdated. Software Inspection is a critical skill; but this book delves too deeply into formalism and follows a heavy rigorous process. Avoid.
