For courses in Advanced Software Engineering or Object-Oriented Design.
This book covers the human and organizational dimension of the software improvement process and software project management – whether based on the CMM or ISO 9000 or the Rational Unified Process. Drawn from a decade of research, it emphasizes common-sense practices. Its principles are general but concrete; every pattern is its own built-in example. Historical supporting material from other disciplines is provided. Though even pattern experts will appreciate the depth and currency of the material, it is self-contained and well-suited for the layperson.

See what reviewers at Slashdot.org originally had to say about James and Neil's book!
"This is a remarkably wise book, full of pragmatic advice drawn from real projects. Ultimately, software development is a human experience, and Jim and Neil have captured the essence of that experience in this work. The tapestry of patterns they have woven is postively brillant, and each thread therein is a delight to read."
--Grady Booch, IBM Fellow
