The mythical man-month: essays on software engineering
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.
