You can see the original posting of this review on my website: I think it was because I was put off by some of the author’s statements that felt like accusations. This one, in particular, bothered me: If you’re the naively optimistic software engineer responsible for making the death march estimate, chances are that you don’t even know what you’re doing.
Yes, I am young and naive and optimistic and not-as-experienced as Mr.
Yourdon, but if I didn’t think there was something to gained from his “old fart” ykurdon, I wouldn’t be reading this book! It’s obvious that Mr. Yourdon thinks highly of himself and other like him.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure Mr. Yourdon is a great, smart, knowledgeable guy. I’ve just lost interest in his book. An internationally recognized consultant, he is author or coauthor of more than 25 books, including Byte WarsManaging High-Intensity Internet Projectsand Decline and Fall of the American Programmer.
