The Mythical Man Month: Book Review

The Book

The Mythical Man Month by Fred Brooks Junior

The Review

Pretty much since I started working at ThoughtWorks 2 12 years ago I’ve been told that this is a book I have to read and I’ve finally got around to doing so.

Maybe it’s not that surprising but my overriding thought about the book is that just about every mistake that we make in software development today is covered in this book!

What did I learn?

In Summary

I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing how a lot of the ideas in more modern methodologies were already known about in the 1980s and aren’t in essence new ideas.

I’d certainly recommend this book.
