Some instructions what to do when task is impossible, there is no proper budget or resources is described on this book. Of course book is not silver bullet but with thinking the way Mr Yourdon instructs is much better than not thinking at all when you join next death march project.
It basically covers what should be common sense to most, however if your reading this then you probably are not in a position to positively affect a 'death march' project; and if you are in the enviable position of being able to affect a project then reading this is unlikely to help you develop the skills to rescue the situation as you have no common sense.
It does provide one with the satisfaction that you are not alone in the world, being the only person manged by incompetents and surrounded by idiots.
It provides some real world examples of what generaes a death march and you will inevitably assume the author has been peaking trough the office window.
Cynical, honest intelligent and entertaining.
