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.
