So first of all, they are not the programmer of computer. This book is probably very adapted to any the one who is, or a trade has associated.
Has had some useful facts partorisca a layman. One takes the message of house has taken was 'too many cooks can spoil a broth'
has abundance of facts, numbers, formulas and ideas, if the coding of big stairs is your thing . If no, it say partorisca find another book.

Has read this book because it was referenced in other texts and recommended mine many many times.

Is an interesting book . But, it boasts that has the sure level of knowledge roughly like an industry of the computer done during an author heyday.

Would take alot more out of this book yes has on-read in a history of first operating systems. So many, the a lot of pre-the cursor to this book would be

Note: prevail dates of Original edition of 1975 (!!!). Have readed One 20th edition of anniversary.

Some habladurías partorisca reserve on development of managing software, tests of forms. Some of this habladuría of tests in differences of developing the program and the commercial product, reason to to the people like/to enjoy programming (and that some questions of him are), some questions partorisca estimate projects (the wrong asumption this gives name to a book of 'a man equals a month' and like this partorisca shorten schedules more manpower has to that be addition), optimism vs reality, in the slippery schedules been due to any quite a lot of testing, a question of shopping centre acute squads' in of the projects of big stairs (any @@subject that well is, is too slow for projects really big) and a solution of surgical crew (a person some heavy tasks, some another sustains), Conceptual integrity, ...

The hips speaks roughly separating architecture of implementation (separated one which of one that), a esecond effect of system' (on-creation: like the first version of something goes well, second version takes so much 'ideas '' those impossible results to acomplish), that and to the equal that have to that be documented, the communication and the meetings that boss, productivity of programmers, documentation (which, when, that, where and that), prototyping and refactoring (the launching was 'the first system built'), it bug that fijamente and testing, ...

Other subjects comprise tools for development, debugging, testing... A chapter mentions the way of 'branching' code of source and using sharedrepositories behind when Subversion was not even the idea... The good people take so to the equal that was possible the advantage given some possibilities, although some tools have limited enough.

Teaches Like this to think in real facts and any illusion; A sentence of example: 'Find real solutions to real questions in of the real schedules with available resources' (the development is sequential, and like this restricted and constrained).

Other subjects that a book fantastically coverages and defines is debugging (multiple categories, types and situations), testing ( recommends to use 'dummy object' and that feigns given of entrance, our real soyock definition of object), incremental iterative development (based in small individual transmissions, maintaining changelogs), questions of estimativa and errors (doing 'questions-actions-negative meetings in place of'tatus-descriptions' a bit) or an importance of documentation in any project of software (self-documenting code and both good and bad practices).

Also, has abundance of examples, studios and same calculations/formulae, but a question here is that the samples are quell'has bitten outdated sometimes (or too oriented the creation of system).

Finally, this author is also famous for a test ' has any ball of money', which looks in here too much. Some habladurías of test in an idea to feign to think that there will be the esomething' that will be it valid for everything and relieve ours developer of process of the plot. Explaining while each project, each system, each situation is so only and like this, there is no alone solution to everything of them.

Is surprising that plus of 25 years later a same text is valid and still true. It have to that be compulsory for manager of project of him undertaken.

Reasons like this few companies follow these joints to reserve then? The desire has known...

This book is the classical for the reason. Each test for Frederick P. Brooks Jr. Engineering of software of the allocutions and invaluable test for this interested in a history and process of this field. getAbstract Also recommends Brooks' book to any the one who flat or organises projects of entities. A collection remains timely because of a clarity of the his thought and a polite beauty of his prose. When Brooks This writing on programming, is not never so only writing on programming. It is writing on some complexities of life, and roughly which more to plan, organises and communicate some the precise concepts win these complexities. This edition of 20th anniversary contains the new tests in Brooks reflects in his earlier writing - especially his principles and predications - and answered to his critiques. A result exhibits the singular, markedly sincere alcohol in work.
5 / 5
This the classical work, and like this lovely today as it was in 1975. It is mainly the collection of tests, each one in leader the subject different in engineering of software and management. A book is full of the the gems the 'Like All the programmers are optimistic : Everything will go a lot of', a famous Brook' law 'that Adds manpower to the project of late software the fact later', 'that Resists of the boy takes nine month, any @@subject the one who the women are assigned' and 'A tortilla, promised in two minutes, when any one ready in two minutes, a client has two elections - wait or the eat the half-cooked. Clients of the software also has some same elections.'

Ossia The book adds partorisca manager of the project but this certainly does not mean is any less lovely partorisca programmers. Some theories Fred. Brooks has initiated 34 years behind are now fundamentals of engineering of software and management of project. Some tests have found lovely especially is 'A Mythical Man-Month' where the author speaks time of managing project, 'Slowly partorisca Launch One Was' where the author speaks a transmission in of the requirements of user and like partorisca face these transmissions. A better of a lot is 'Any Ball of Money', where the author compares construction of software to werewolves, those who looks partorisca be normal but can suddenly gone back to monsters. Here the author stresses that the managing complexity is an essence of engineering of software. It comprises to to the gems like esoftware the establishments are more complex partorisca of his measure that perhaps a lot other human builds, reasons any one two part are equally. If they are, we some two part resembled a, to subroutine. To the respect, the systems of software differ deeply computers, edifices, or car, where has repeated the elements abound' and 'An alone part harder that build the system of software is deciding precisely as the built. No another part of a work as it spoils a resultant system if bad fact. No another part is more difficult that rectify later'. And continuous in partorisca say this construction of software is the creative process , a difference among creation of good software and add an a lot of necessarily depends in the methods have used to create a creation, instead, the utmost creations comes from/utmost designers come from.

Has the few tests that there is not founding a lot useful and is there where these looks to reserve somehow overrated. Anyways My only question with this book is a tongue. For speaker any English in of the places results the hard read (although it is understandable of then write 35 years ago).

Resuman: Highly recommended to manager of project of the software as well as programmers.
4 / 5
20 years my career, and ossia still one the majority of book of entity roughly the engineering of software has read, surpassing a XP pounds, programming Pearls, programming Perl, Modern C++ Programming and Effective C++, my another preferred. Reason? Reason is insightful in an odd and counter productive mentality that still prevails today, around developers of projects of big software. All the world-wide involved in of the projects of software would owe that comprise some cheats have put coffins thus book before they ship in the developer of project of big software.
5 / 5
I finally taken around to read this book and am a lot happy has done. It take so that his that has finalised he in only the pair of days. An a lot of-vaunted ideas the management of project, and in concrete developer of management of the software, was all there, included after all this time. In fact, more than some 25+ years of this life of books that does out of date, these years have has to that done this reserves the fascinating peek behind to a past, when the computer a lot always have OSs, programmers coded in assembly, and PL/ was bordos cutting ! Some lessons of the management mostly still resists some today, and included the majority of some lessons to program still control, although they can be @@give has bitten it differently today. A lot recommended.
4 / 5
One of some better books never written on development of software and computing in general.
Yes, has dated in of the places but this in spite of is still a lot interesting and often incredibly insightful. A test of title (roughly like this launching additional people in an already late project simply the same later fact) and a test roughly According to Syndrome of System in particularly of well.
He ought to be (but sadly is not ) the must read for all the world-wide doing in him.
5 / 5
Done for several developing years of software, exposure to context of engineering of the first systems to read this book. I think that that Brooks was like this very like this he a lot the time done that ossia 'the book of absolute must law' on engineering of the software for any one has interested.

I brooks Written in the each chapter in different worries that affects Engineering of Software. Some chapters comprise experiences an author has had during his work in IBM behind in a 70s. This the fact even more that it interest of calm in fact learn roughly history of a work. It remarks that a main content has been written the fact for the moment, but, a lot still applies in today of half.

This edition comprises some original tests and adds new content that comment in a book, an evolution of a field and the one who an author thinks is still applicable and that no.

Like the whole is a lot readable and a lot the time has amused to read. IMO Ossia The must read for any one doing in engineering of software.
5 / 5
Although some sections are quell'has bitten dated, an essence of the core of this book remains true. A fashion to write is crisp and to a point and appreciates the time of a reader. This book would owe that be essential reading for any one doing development of software.
5 / 5
Has bought this book in a recommendation of the partner, bought 'debugging a developer of Half' in a recommendation of my boss and probably would recommend neither partorisca todays fluidic half half. The months of mythical Man contains the little outdated the developer seen of software, more suitably apt for an age when development of projects of only long time partorisca mainframes existed and development/of PC of the Web had not been listened of.

Appropriate closing in of the parts to developers of the projects of big waterfall have based, any one gains with RAD/Extreme and another more modern, developers of methods of small crew and probably so only the useful bed yes is new to project squads and/or has not done in a The half
5 / 5
Included although a book is literally old decades, is signal more pertinent is still attentive, pertinent and up to date. A must-read for architects of developers/of the software.

A 1975 text is character likes test Any one Balls of Money in a part of final of a book. In a very final test is entirely different.

In some final pages (207 and from now on) for some Gentleman of reason Brooks felt that precise begins to defend his original text against some critiques. Struggling with the critic is pointless and one me so only to feel the shamed behalf of Gentleman Brooks.
4 / 5
This book is supposition partorisca be the classical roughly management of project of the software, perhaps because it was a prime minister to in fact cover a @@subject and joint of offer and solutions behind in a 70s. Included this in spite of more the principles today apply, some argues has aged quite bad and does not translate a lot well in today of half.

Has a feeling has not learnt anything that a lot already was, which somehow is frustrating.
4 / 5
Take a Month of Mythical Man was the seminal test has retreated then. This a lot of sure bed. But a rest of a book is a lot out of date, and a lot repetitive. It takes the bit to spend too that listens an old line that the hardware there is anticipated the fold of the thousand and the software has no. Er, has TOUCHED any games of computers lately?

Would recommend to read a Month of Mythical Man elsewhere yes calms can find on-line and save a time, money, and the endeavour that reads a whole book.

The time Has better spent to read the book in Agile, or XP would think.

A book really well on security of software. Also it covers C++11.
5 / 5 Royal
Has the strongest emphasis on C that C++ but ossia predominantly because of a number more adds of vulnerability in C code.

Has examples of good details and good explanations of a reasoning behind some questions of particular functionalities. Almost all the subjects also have descriptions of like this to avert some particular exploits.

In general, ossia the good book in some technical appearances to write code that does not contain a majority of the intrinsic known vulnerabilities in C and C++. Many of a principle also can be relieved using tools of static analysis, and would have to that be!

Formed: Paperback With all honesty, has not learnt a lot of bed this book. Has the plot partorisca program years in my backside, but does not think that is a reason.

This book is obviously a lot roughly learning partorisca write code, but instead like this partorisca direct the project of the main software (and think like an engineer): As partorisca begin, as partorisca do sure has no miscommunication in that a product would owe that be able to do, as partorisca do sure all the phases are taken the account , UML, trying with JUnit and more.

That when be said, is taking a step of programmer to engineer, probably already know the majority of of the this. Software &62;&62;engineering&60;&60; it indicates that you are already quite anticipated. Systems of Modeling, chances of use, histories of user, if-, class- and the diagrams of sequence are probably things already is doing, included if any of the the to you.

Like adivinos is the fine book to dip the one who calm already is doing the words and of the diagrams. Using these tools systematically in a phase to draw of a project (Before in fact coding a system), is very useful, but something has to that already (to some terracing) be doing.

Also way too much failure-references scienziathe, blah and to the, 2000 etc. is not the paper of magazine, want to any one the one who knows' opinion, the want concise and to a point, wants to take some value out of him, any namby pamby floaty material that to to the sounds like is of of some professional qualification syllabus.

very always has to that to a same perspective likes them the author (I work in an organisation without manager), but always finds that it has to that say interesting and on point. Especially, I recommend that this reserves the people that loves level on his 1-2-1s.

Has read this book because it was referenced in other texts and recommended mine many many times.

Is an interesting book . But, it boasts that has the sure level of knowledge roughly like an industry of the computer done during an author heyday.

Note: prevail dates of Original edition of 1975 (!!!). Have readed One 20th edition of anniversary.

Some habladurías partorisca reserve on development of managing software, tests of forms. Some of this habladuría of tests in differences of developing the program and the commercial product, reason to to the people like/to enjoy programming (and that some questions of him are), some questions partorisca estimate projects (the wrong asumption this gives name to a book of 'a man equals a month' and like this partorisca shorten schedules more manpower has to that be addition), optimism vs reality, in the slippery schedules been due to any quite a lot of testing, a question of shopping centre acute squads' in of the projects of big stairs (any @@subject that well is, is too slow for projects really big) and a solution of surgical crew (a person some heavy tasks, some another sustains), Conceptual integrity, ...

The hips speaks roughly separating architecture of implementation (separated one which of one that), a esecond effect of system' (on-creation: like the first version of something goes well, second version takes so much 'ideas '' those impossible results to acomplish), that and to the equal that have to that be documented, the communication and the meetings that boss, productivity of programmers, documentation (which, when, that, where and that), prototyping and refactoring (the launching was 'the first system built'), it bug that fijamente and testing, ...

Other subjects comprise tools for development, debugging, testing... A chapter mentions the way of 'branching' code of source and using sharedrepositories behind when Subversion was not even the idea... The good people take so to the equal that was possible the advantage given some possibilities, although some tools have limited enough.

Teaches Like this to think in real facts and any illusion; A sentence of example: 'Find real solutions to real questions in of the real schedules with available resources' (the development is sequential, and like this restricted and constrained).

Other subjects that a book fantastically coverages and defines is debugging (multiple categories, types and situations), testing ( recommends to use 'dummy object' and that feigns given of entrance, our real soyock definition of object), incremental iterative development (based in small individual transmissions, maintaining changelogs), questions of estimativa and errors (doing 'questions-actions-negative meetings in place of'tatus-descriptions' a bit) or an importance of documentation in any project of software (self-documenting code and both good and bad practices).

Also, has abundance of examples, studios and same calculations/formulae, but a question here is that the samples are quell'has bitten outdated sometimes (or too oriented the creation of system).

Finally, this author is also famous for a test ' has any ball of money', which looks in here too much. Some habladurías of test in an idea to feign to think that there will be the esomething' that will be it valid for everything and relieve ours developer of process of the plot. Explaining while each project, each system, each situation is so only and like this, there is no alone solution to everything of them.

Is surprising that plus of 25 years later a same text is valid and still true. It have to that be compulsory for manager of project of him undertaken.

Reasons like this few companies follow these joints to reserve then? The desire has known...

This book is the classical for the reason. Each test for Frederick P. Brooks Jr. Engineering of software of the allocutions and invaluable test for this interested in a history and process of this field. getAbstract Also recommends Brooks' book to any the one who flat or organises projects of entities. A collection remains timely because of a clarity of the his thought and a polite beauty of his prose. When Brooks This writing on programming, is not never so only writing on programming. It is writing on some complexities of life, and roughly which more to plan, organises and communicate some the precise concepts win these complexities. This edition of 20th anniversary contains the new tests in Brooks reflects in his earlier writing - especially his principles and predications - and answered to his critiques. A result exhibits the singular, markedly sincere alcohol in work.

This the classical work, and like this lovely today as it was in 1975. It is mainly the collection of tests, each one in leader the subject different in engineering of software and management. A book is full of the the gems the 'Like All the programmers are optimistic : Everything will go a lot of', a famous Brook' law 'that Adds manpower to the project of late software the fact later', 'that Resists of the boy takes nine month, any @@subject the one who the women are assigned' and 'A tortilla, promised in two minutes, when any one ready in two minutes, a client has two elections - wait or the eat the half-cooked. Clients of the software also has some same elections.'

Ossia The book adds partorisca manager of the project but this certainly does not mean is any less lovely partorisca programmers. Some theories Fred. Brooks has initiated 34 years behind are now fundamentals of engineering of software and management of project. Some tests have found lovely especially is 'A Mythical Man-Month' where the author speaks time of managing project, 'Slowly partorisca Launch One Was' where the author speaks a transmission in of the requirements of user and like partorisca face these transmissions. A better of a lot is 'Any Ball of Money', where the author compares construction of software to werewolves, those who looks partorisca be normal but can suddenly gone back to monsters. Here the author stresses that the managing complexity is an essence of engineering of software. It comprises to to the gems like esoftware the establishments are more complex partorisca of his measure that perhaps a lot other human builds, reasons any one two part are equally. If they are, we some two part resembled a, to subroutine. To the respect, the systems of software differ deeply computers, edifices, or car, where has repeated the elements abound' and 'An alone part harder that build the system of software is deciding precisely as the built. No another part of a work as it spoils a resultant system if bad fact. No another part is more difficult that rectify later'. And continuous in partorisca say this construction of software is the creative process , a difference among creation of good software and add an a lot of necessarily depends in the methods have used to create a creation, instead, the utmost creations comes from/utmost designers come from.

Has the few tests that there is not founding a lot useful and is there where these looks to reserve somehow overrated. Anyways My only question with this book is a tongue. For speaker any English in of the places results the hard read (although it is understandable of then write 35 years ago).

Resuman: Highly recommended to manager of project of the software as well as programmers.

20 years my career, and ossia still one the majority of book of entity roughly the engineering of software has read, surpassing a XP pounds, programming Pearls, programming Perl, Modern C++ Programming and Effective C++, my another preferred. Reason? Reason is insightful in an odd and counter productive mentality that still prevails today, around developers of projects of big software. All the world-wide involved in of the projects of software would owe that comprise some cheats have put coffins thus book before they ship in the developer of project of big software.

I finally taken around to read this book and am a lot happy has done. It take so that his that has finalised he in only the pair of days. An a lot of-vaunted ideas the management of project, and in concrete developer of management of the software, was all there, included after all this time. In fact, more than some 25+ years of this life of books that does out of date, these years have has to that done this reserves the fascinating peek behind to a past, when the computer a lot always have OSs, programmers coded in assembly, and PL/ was bordos cutting ! Some lessons of the management mostly still resists some today, and included the majority of some lessons to program still control, although they can be @@give has bitten it differently today. A lot recommended.

One of some better books never written on development of software and computing in general.
Yes, has dated in of the places but this in spite of is still a lot interesting and often incredibly insightful. A test of title (roughly like this launching additional people in an already late project simply the same later fact) and a test roughly According to Syndrome of System in particularly of well.
He ought to be (but sadly is not ) the must read for all the world-wide doing in him.
5 / 5 Sherwood
Done for several developing years of software, exposure to context of engineering of the first systems to read this book. I think that that Brooks was like this very like this he a lot the time done that ossia 'the book of absolute must law' on engineering of the software for any one has interested.

I brooks Written in the each chapter in different worries that affects Engineering of Software. Some chapters comprise experiences an author has had during his work in IBM behind in a 70s. This the fact even more that it interest of calm in fact learn roughly history of a work. It remarks that a main content has been written the fact for the moment, but, a lot still applies in today of half.

This edition comprises some original tests and adds new content that comment in a book, an evolution of a field and the one who an author thinks is still applicable and that no.

Like the whole is a lot readable and a lot the time has amused to read. IMO Ossia The must read for any one doing in engineering of software.

Although some sections are quell'has bitten dated, an essence of the core of this book remains true. A fashion to write is crisp and to a point and appreciates the time of a reader. This book would owe that be essential reading for any one doing development of software.

Has bought this book in a recommendation of the partner, bought 'debugging a developer of Half' in a recommendation of my boss and probably would recommend neither partorisca todays fluidic half half. The months of mythical Man contains the little outdated the developer seen of software, more suitably apt for an age when development of projects of only long time partorisca mainframes existed and development/of PC of the Web had not been listened of.

Appropriate closing in of the parts to developers of the projects of big waterfall have based, any one gains with RAD/Extreme and another more modern, developers of methods of small crew and probably so only the useful bed yes is new to project squads and/or has not done in a The half

A 1975 text is character likes test Any one Balls of Money in a part of final of a book. In a very final test is entirely different.

In some final pages (207 and from now on) for some Gentleman of reason Brooks felt that precise begins to defend his original text against some critiques. Struggling with the critic is pointless and one me so only to feel the shamed behalf of Gentleman Brooks.

This book is supposition partorisca be the classical roughly management of project of the software, perhaps because it was a prime minister to in fact cover a @@subject and joint of offer and solutions behind in a 70s. Included this in spite of more the principles today apply, some argues has aged quite bad and does not translate a lot well in today of half.

Has a feeling has not learnt anything that a lot already was, which somehow is frustrating.
5 / 5 Araceli
Take a Month of Mythical Man was the seminal test has retreated then. This a lot of sure bed. But a rest of a book is a lot out of date, and a lot repetitive. It takes the bit to spend too that listens an old line that the hardware there is anticipated the fold of the thousand and the software has no. Er, has TOUCHED any games of computers lately?

Would recommend to read a Month of Mythical Man elsewhere yes calms can find on-line and save a time, money, and the endeavour that reads a whole book.

The time Has better spent to read the book in Agile, or XP would think.
