Sort order. Feb 23, Jim Butler rated it it was amazing Shelves: How can I add any value to the multitude of reviews that obviously say "You must download this"? When I was working 80 hours a week - this was the only book I read cover-to-cover. When I lent my book to one of my staff and he left the firm, I bought another copy off the shelf within 24 hours I couldn't wait for site's delivery time. This was after having read the book twice.
This is the only book I have bought 3 copies: It's the only book which caused me How can I add any value to the multitude of reviews that obviously say "You must download this"? It's the only book which caused me to specifically make a trip to the bookstore to get a signature and hear a writer speak. This is the 2nd of McConnell's books I've read.
Code Complete was great. I couldn't believe anything could be better but this book is it. It repeated a few facts and figures but it's worthwhile to have it reorganized and re-presented for a different view.
This book has led me to be a confirmed McConnell reader. His other books are good, but this is his best.
Unfortunately, my expectation is so high now that his subsequent books are not impressing me as much. Because of this book, I will attend my second course from his company - even if it means flying into Seattle's rain. One book and he's hooked me for literally a thousand dollars - that's an effective writer! May 14, Matt rated it it was ok. I think this book is really showing it's age. McConnell's advice feels genuine, but the data is based on experiences from the early 90s.
A lot has happened in the software world between then and now so there are many things that don't fit with some of the best practices that modern development embraces.
Unless you're staying on top of how companies do development today, it's hard to filter out what is outdated advice versus what is still relevant. Therefore, in spite of the book having some good I think this book is really showing it's age. Therefore, in spite of the book having some good information, I can't recommend it strongly because uninformed readers might be lead astray by practices that have proven themselves to be fads I'm looking at you, JAD or are just mediocre advice.
View 1 comment. Aug 27, Toby Reiter added it Recommends it for: This book is as much about psychology as it is about specific IT techniques for rapidly developing applications. Many of the books lessons focus on managing expectations, avoiding common political and personal pitfalls during the development process, and anticipating and controlling change.
For developers, this pairs very well with Code Complete. Aug 29, Ben rated it liked it. Two stars for readability and concise writing, three and a half stars for content. The content is quite good, but in attempting to be comprehensive, the book ends up being excessively verbose. A more well-organized and edited version of this book might be a third the length and cover all the material more effectively.
The "case studies" were the most painful part as they felt artificial and contrived and rarely provided insight the text had not already clarified. Sep 03, Nathan rated it really liked it. Great book on Project Management. This book was required as in college and I was fortunate this book was assigned as a read. Great concepts on managing expectations, dealing with business politics, and delivering projects.
Worth the read. Oct 01, Emily rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Project Managers. I probably wouldn't have read this book if I hadn't been assigned to read it. It is written for software developers, but I believe that any project manager could learn a lot. This book has really opened my eyes. Jan 18, Dax rated it it was amazing. I thought this was a lot better than the more famous Code Complete by the same author, and perhaps the best software engineering best-practices book there is.
Nov 28, Robert Kennedy rated it really liked it. I don't think this has aged as well as Code Complete, but still has a ton of great insights. I would love to see an updated version written in the age of iterative delivery.
Feb 16, James rated it really liked it Recommends it for: This book could have been one quarter of the size and still convey the same data.
A decent read, but missing information on the latest software development fads. Steve Maguire 's Debugging the Development Process is better. Feb 24, Craig Cecil rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book should be read, re-read, memorized, and used by anyone involved in the planning, management, development, or deployment of software.
It's that good. Steve McConnell presents a succinct, well organized collection of the lessons learned and best practices in software engineering over the last three decades. Jan 29, Hasyimi Bahrudin rated it it was amazing. Just got the book today.
I'm pretty impressed with the book quality. Just a few flipped pages for bookmarking here and there. No stains so far. No missing pages so far. Pretty good deal for an awesome book! Comprehensive treatment of software development. Jun 22, Lauri rated it really liked it.
