compulsory reading at boo.com
I bought a copy of this book for every member of staff in the Technology department at boo.com (along with a copy of "Burn Rate" by Michael Wolff) on 19th May 1999 (27 copies of each according to Amazon's order history) just after we'd missed the first launch date.

The tagline explains that it's "The complete Software Developer's Guide to Surviving 'Mission Impossible' Projects".

It's a great book about recognizing when you're involved in such a project and what to do to minimise the fall out (alright... maybe I didn't do too well at that bit). It really did help me attempt to manage that development project.
Rating: 9/10
