The tar pit. The mythical man-month. The surgical team; Aristocracy, democracy, and system design. The second-system effect. Passing the word. Why did the tower of babel fail? Calling the shot. Ten pounds in a five-pound sack. The documentary hypothesis. Plan to throw one away. Sharp tools. The whole and parts. Hatching a catastrophe. The other face.

User Review  - Alexander Yakushev - Goodreads

Some of the ideas in the book are out of date, some apply only to really big projects; but I would certainly revisit this piece if I was to design a big software system from scratch. Read full review
