TechBookReport on 'Software Development Edge'
TBR writes "Joe Marasco was a very successful project manager at Rational Software, and now, at the end of a distinguished career, he sets out some of his accumulated wisdom and insights in this anthology of essays devoted to software development and management. These 'essays on managing successful projects' cover a range of topics, from scheduling to estimating to modelling to office politics. The focus isn't just on straight software management issues, there's plenty of tangential material as well, but more of that later. One other thing to note is that the book comes with plenty of plaudits from senior people from the world of software development. So, does the book manage to live up to the praise already upon it?"
