A genuine classic - a truly seminal work,
This review is from: The Mythical Man-month: Essays on Software Engineering (Paperback)
One of the best books ever written about software development and computing in general.
Yes, it has dated in places but even so it is still very interesting and often incredibly insightful. The title essay (about how throwing additional people at an already late project simply makes it even later) and the essay about Second System Syndrome at particularly good.
It ought to be (but rather sadly is not) a must read for everybody working in IT.
