Tom DeMarco, Timothy Lister.
Dorset House. 1987

rating : 3 : worth reading

A good read, that introduces us to The Furniture Police, the importance and difficulty of Flow, learning not to answer the phone, and that has a very early reference to Christopher Alexander's Timeless Way (which I did not follow up when I first read this in 1990, more's the pity).

Tom DeMarco, Timothy Lister.
Waltzing with Bears: managing risk on software projects.
Dorset House. 2003
