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.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

Classical book and human factors in software development. Sometimes a bit too wordy and boring (authors describe same approaches again and again to make sure readers got it).
Most concepts are well
known these days, however almost all companies just ignore everything said in this book. Sad but true.
