Editorial Reviews

Review

""Rothman and Derby bring a clarity and honesty to the craft of software-development management that I haven't felt since first reading Demarco and Lister's classic, Peopleware. Their story-based teaching style is engaging, and the tips contained provide a valuable reference for those who find themselves in the world of management.""--Bil Kleb, Research Scientist, NASA

""Five Star Review: All the great stuff is here... Easy to read and understand.""""

--Robert Pritchett, macCompanion --This text refers to the paperback edition.
