Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two of the computer industry's most popular authors and lecturers return with a new edition of the software management book that started a revolution.

With humor and wisdom drawn from years of management and consulting experience, DeMarco and Lister demonstrate that the major issues of software development are human, not technical — and that managers ignore them at their peril.

Now, with a new preface and eight new chapters — expanding the original edition by one third — the authors enlarge upon their previous ideas and add fresh insights, examples, and potent anecdotes.

Discover dozens of ingenious tips on how to
-- put more quality into a product
-- loosen up formal methodologies
-- fight corporate entropy
-- make it acceptable to be uninterruptible

Peopleware shows you how to cultivate teams that are healthy and productive. The answers aren't easy — just incredibly successful.

Book News Annotation:

Highlights ways in which managers fail to motivate members of teams to produce their best work, and demonstrates methods for improvement. Advocates such changes as elimination of the "police mentality" in management and investment by bosses in superior workspace for employees. Dismisses many of management's favorite canards, including the one that states that workers are inefficient when working from home. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
