Sobre o Autor
T om DeMarco and Timothy Lister are principals of The Atlantic Systems Guild (www.systemsguild.com), a consulting firm specializing in the complex processes of system building, with particular emphasis on the human dimension. Together, they have lectured, written, and consulted internationally since 1979 on management, estimating, productivity, and corporate culture.
T om DeMarco is the author or coauthor of nine books on subjects ranging from development methods to organizational function and dysfunction, as well as two novels and a book of short stories. His consulting practice focuses primarily on expert witness work, balanced against the occasional project and team consulting assignment. Currently enjoying his third year teaching ethics at the University of Maine, he lives in nearby Camden.
Timothy Lister divides his time among consulting, teaching, and writing. Based in Manhattan, Tim is coauthor, with Tom, of Waltzing With Bears: Managing Risk on Software Projects (Dorset House Publishing Co., Inc., 2003), and of Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies: Understanding Patterns of Project Behavior (Dorset House Publishing Co., Inc., 2008), written with four other principals of The Atlantic Systems Guild. He is a member of the IEEE, the ACM, and the Cutter IT Trends Council, and is a Cutter Fellow.

The world of software development is becoming increasingly more important as computer technology improves and we desperately need better software engineers. Don't let yourself become a 'hack,' sitting in meetings all day and never writing a single line of code; free yourself from distractions, achieve your programming 'flow' and make the software engineering world a better place by reading this book!
On the one hand, it is extremely thought-provoking, and if nothing else I'm convinced that it has rightly identified several important aspects of the modern technology corporation that managers might be able to influence and should certainly be mindful of. I also appreciate the moral argument that it makes, that a good (and successful) manager needs to protect the psychological and sociological well-being against his or her own ego (and the egos of those above).
At times I thought the authors were a bit simplistic in their caricatures of the corporate villains, and I don't believe for a second that they gave a fair treatment to both sides of any particular corporate policy they consider, but then again that's not really important so much as the overarching moral framework the authors depict.
This is the first book I read on this subject as a newly minutes manager and I'm glad it was.
This book should be read by all those working in the software industry or intends to. Regardless of the job (software engineer , QA engineer , lead , manager, etc.), this book is full of wisdom and experience that applies to any work environment that everyone must know.
Undoubtedly, it can be classified as a classic. This is in the top-10 books that everyone who has a job related to software development should read.
The only downside is that I hoped that this edition include more analysis and ideas after the big agile movement in the last decade. There are some comments but not a rich analysis. This edition is only a very small upgrade to the great classic.
A new book that is emerging as a great complement candidate to this classic is "Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams". I have not finished reading it, but so far looks promising.
If I was a manager at a typical and mediocre corporation, I would not recommend this book too much-- it is hell fighting against corporate culture. However if you work for the best or you are starting a business and want to be the best, this book is extremely important. (If you are a manager working at a mediocre corporation, start your own business or get hired by a better company after you read this book!)
The main premise of the book is that people matter more than management or technology. Any business leader worth his salt knows these two points, yet most managers or leaders ignore them. This book helps give form to the ideals and specific guidance to get there. It is well recommended to everyone who manages software projects.
