The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering, Anniversary Editi

The classic book on the human elements of software engineering. Software tools and development environments may have changed in the 21 years since the first edition of this book, but the peculiarly nonlinear economies of scale in collaborative work and the nature of individuals and groups has not changed an epsilon. If you write code or depend upon those who do, get this book as soon as possible — from Books, your library, or anyone else. You (and/or your colleagues) will be forever grateful. Very Highest Recommendation.

Product Description
No book on software project management has been so influential and so timeless as The Mythical Man-Month. Now 20 years after the publication of his book, Frederick P. Brooks, Jr. (best known as the “father of the IBM System 360″) revisits his original ideas and develops new thoughts and advice both for readers familiar with his work and for readers discovering it for the first time.
