Format: Spiral-bound
This book, although small in size, is large in scope; namely, to provide a comprehensive reference for requirements activities in all sizes of software development projects. This sounds a tall order but the reader is in safe hands as the author succeeds handsomely.

The book assumes that the reader has some experience of requirements specification of software development: it would not be suitable for a complete novice as the information contained is not only densely packed but the sheer variety of techniques contained means that it would be inadvisable to apply them all on a single project. To be fair, the author provides some excellent guidance on which techniques are best suited to which types of project.

The book is split into the following sections:

- Stage Setting
- Elicitation
- Analysis
- Specification
- Validation
- Management
- Adapting Practices to Project Types.

Stage Setting gives a straightforward about aligning the project with the business's objectives and links to project governance areas such as risk management.

Elicitation gives a summary of how to define the requirements - starting by ensuring that all the stakeholders are identified prior to the requirements-gathering activity; missing stakeholders are a major cause of requirements being missed. The case study is especially useful here as the list of stakeholders is very comprehensive and would be a good checklist for potential missed stakeholders in your current project.

The author also describes a simple mechanism for ranking stakeholder influence/importance to give the appropriate level of involvement.

What a fabulous buy! I bought this on a whim as I heard about it through a blog and thought ok I will try it, and I wasn't disappointed. This is a little gem of a book as it allows you to dip in and quickly re-familiarise yourself with a technique which you might not have used for a while. Hey we all get a little rusty! If you want an in-depth how-to then this is not the book for you, but if you want to quickly get back up to speed with a software analysis technique you have not used in a while then this is the book for you.

Only critisism is the sprial binding - it does come apart, but nothing a little super glue can't fix.

This is a brilliant little reference book that I have used to remind myself of the techniques available to me. There only gripe is that although the book is pocket size it is very thick. I would say this is more handbag size.
