5.0 out of 5 stars Distinctive, readable, proven introduction, 19 Nov 2012
This review is from: Mastering the Requirements Process: Getting Requirements Right (Hardcover)
Software books don't often reach a 3rd edition - generally it's two years and they're obsolete: written in haste and in gobbledegook, to hit a quick market and be forgotten. It's now over 12 years since the first edition of this book, 25 years and countless training courses in the making. The result is a distinctive product, a hand-crafted textbook adapted to its users and their needs. There's a wealth of advice, given in small steps, crisply presented and illustrated from personal experience. That means, the authors have no intention of doing things the usual way, unless it happens to be right. The book is aimed squarely at people without much experience of requirements, and is designed to be used in teaching, whether on short courses in industry or on a university course. This means the examples and illustrations are deliberately very simple in 'feel' and appearance. That's deceptive, of course: much practical wisdom is conveyed through simplicity, and tutorial examples have to be small to be manageable, but the techniques are powerful and general. If you've seen an earlier edition of this book, much of this will seem very familiar, but the coverage is broader, the presentation smoother and more up to date, the examples richer and the connection to experience deeper - in other words, it's greatly improved. For self-study without attending a course, you'll find the book readable and thought-provoking, with very clear diagrams and worked examples in the text, but there aren't exercises as such.
