Dreaming in Code
since i saw Joel hype this book on his site, I've been dying to read it. i loved reading "masters of doom" so i figured this would be a similar experience.
i bought the book, then, when i started reading, i realized that this was more engrossing to me than "masters" because it fit closer to my own personal experiences of projects getting out of hand.
excellent read. (i'm on page 150)

Thanks for the review. I've been thinking about that book as well. I've kept a suspicious,but sympathetic eye on the "progress" of Chandler for years now.

I'm about halfway thru.
So far, their experiences are deja-vu.
Scope creep? Check.
Poorly defined (or no) requirements? Check.
People talking at cross-purposes? Oh yes.
