It's a 10! I have read and reread this book many times and come away amazed at how eloquent and spot on Fred Brooks is when talking about, in this case, software engineering, even though the concept expressed can be applied to every endeavor requiring planning, communication and a collaborative atmosphere in order to true innovation to happen. It's a must read for anyone doing anything of significance in business or technology.

A "must read" book for any software professional. Full of good common sense advice on software projects management. Though over 30 years old, most conclusions are still applicable today. It's amazing that today deciders still make the same mistakes about sofware projects, while the causes of failures are known since so long. Offer this book to your manager if you ever heard the "I need this for yesterday, get 10 more progammers and have them finish this *now*!" sentence.

Fantastic for anyone working in a technical field or a manager of engineers and technicians.
