If you normally fall asleep while reading books about Project Management, give this one a try. Set in the form of a novel, the reader follows the experiences of a Project Manager charged with bringing home a series of project with typically impossible deadlines.
This is not a text book. If you're new to Project Management, I recommend that you start elsewhere. However, if you've been involved in projects or find yourself in the lucky position of being a Project Manager, this book provides some valuable ideas about how to improve your project -- or at least cope with inevitabilities.
If you enjoy this book, also look at "The Goal" by Eliyahu Goldratt and Jeff Cox, and also "Zapp: The Lightening of Improvement" by William Byham.

Super Buch, genialer Inhalt und extrem gut leserlich. Selten habe ich ein fachliches Thema so anschaulich und in Form on leichter Kost vermittelt erhalten. In Anbetracht der netten Story sollte man dein sehr gehaltvollen Inhalt einfach nicht überlesen oder zu leicht hinnehmen.

Kurz: Eine absolute Pflichtlektüre für alle in einem IT-Projekt involvierten (insbesondere natürlich alle Projektleiter)

Einziger Punkt: Ein zusammenfassendes Kapitel am Ende hätte das Buch vollends perfektioniert.

Tom DeMarco has written a terrific follow up to his earlier Peopleware book. He uses the vehicle of a fictional software project to present a number of ideas for improving project management. I loved the book, and read it in two evenings. People who read widely in this area will probably enjoy the veiled references to a number of other "gurus" in the field of software project management.
My only suggestion for improving this book would be an appendix listing any real world experiments that support the suggestions in the book.
Overall, I thought this was a great book, and definitely worth adding to your project management library (particularly if you liked Peopleware).

DeMarco tries to write a whole novel about project management - and fails, if you ask me. The novel part is rather bad, the talking sounds unnatural, the characters are too simple and some episodes are extremely unrealistic. DeMarco wants to say something, so the characters hurry to let him do so.
The notes Mr Tompkins does at the end of every chapter are extremely worthwile, though. If you are interested in reading something about project management, you might as well concentrate on these notes and leave the rest unread, which is skipping about 95%. As someone else already said, most items are convered by peopleware, already.

Mr. Demarco's book is an easy, entertaining read. It can be consumed in an evening with very little effort. In the guise of the protagonist's diary entries, Demarco instructs the reader on the finer points of software project management. Humor and a cutting wit are two more of Demarco's strong points. There is more practical information in this little book than in any 10 textbooks on the subject. It is now a part of my library (if I can ever get it back - people keep borrowing it!).

This book and the message behind is amazing and much more than all science specific books can give you. The novell was able to transport the things you need beside the tool, processes and structure to lead a project sucsessful. the philosopy behind the work, the human and your self in project. Its worth to read!

Das Buch ist mir im Rahmen einer Fortbildung im Fach Projektmanagement empfohlen worden. Es verbindet auf unterhaltsame Weise Belletristik und Fachbuch und ist recht hilfreich. Trotzdem muss man Abstriche im Stil machen.

Klasse. Ein Buch so spannend und unterhaltsam wie ein guter Roman und doch zugleich gespickt mit Weisheiten aus der IT-Branche. Lesenswert auch für alle Lesemuffel und solche, die eigentlich keine Fachbücher für nötig halten. Auch in deutscher Sprache unter dem Titel "Der Termin" erhältlich, lässt sich aber mühelos im Original lesen.
Für mich eines der besten Bücher, die jemals über Softwareentwicklung geschrieben wurden.

If you want good management info, just read the summary statements at the end of each chapter. This is a project management book in which Mr. DeMarco takes the opportunity to throw in cussing and his own personal opinions on child-rearing and religion. So if you want to get his liberal opinions and read the other filth, go ahead and read the whole thing. I'm asking for my money back. Most of this is already in PeopleWare.

Using a fictional project as an instructional device, DeMarco discourses on the human side of project management, introduces some new (or lesser known) techniques,
and sneaks in
some swipes at industry sacred cows.
Problems appear, are discussed, and then disappear, just like real life... Several well-known consultants make
thinly disguised guest appearances to lend advice on problems in their area of expertise.

This is a entertaining "big picture" read for project leaders, but seems aimed more at managers who manage managers--folks at the Director or V.P. level. Each chapter ends with a set of management friendly, presentation-ready "lessons learned" bullet points. Read it, then
slip it into your manager's briefcase before their next long flight.
