The more things change ...,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mythical Man-Month. Essays on Software Engineering (Taschenbuch)
... the more they stay the same. Never was that adage more true then in this case. This book truly is one of the timeless classics on software engineering. The same mistakes we make and moan about today were being made back in the 1960s. Mr. Brooks points them out, analyzes them, and offers his ideas on why they happen and how things can be improved.
This "Anniversary" edition includes some additional material, as well as the author's commentary on what has changed -- and what has not. Even that which no longer applies is educational, in that it shows us how things have evolved. But by and large, most of what Mr. Brooks wrote back in 1975 still applies in 2000.
Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. If you are involved in software engineering, you will need to know what this book talks about. You might as well read it now, rather then finding out the hard way.
