Format: Paperback
AS a Developer Struggling with the stresses and strains of the daily grind of comercial software development I was on the edge of quiting it all and moving on to pushing a broom for the rest of my life just for the sanity. This book has helped me to re-evaluate my attitude and desires for my career and has given me the encouragement and ammunition needed to survive the battlefield of development. If you develop or analyze commercial or even in-house solutions and struggle to get to grips with all the corporate red tape and downright insanity this book is for you...This book is a MUST BUY for anyone who wants to be the best at what they do in the world of IT. No BS here just good wholesome truthful survival tacticts from someone who knows what the hell they are talking about.

While this book is clearly written for corporate America it still have several insights that are useful here in Europe. While it is easy to chuckle along as the author describes reasons for projects collapsing and what to do about it, it also describes factors for success, such as how to get your way when setting deadlines, allocating resources, etc. It also takes into account the different personality types one can see in development teams and management, and how to make use of those. This includes making use of people usually viewed as obstacles. (That might include oneself...:) The book is easy to read and the examples are easy to remember so that you can recognize what is going on at meetings before, during and after the project.

It's an important tool for the modern developer. Any developer that is proud to be called that, must at least know some of the tools provided here. As the fast pace of change is ever increasing speed, one must be able to cope with that change. This book tells you that it is "do or die" for the contractor or developer on a small shop. Loved it.
