it was amazing
Read in January, 1975

If I could only recommend one book on project management, The Mythical Man-Month would be that book.

I had an opportunity to hear Professor Brooks teach on the subject while he was writing the book and bought a copy as soon as it was released. That was shortly before I started my degree in CS...

I have found its advice invaluable in project management, not only for software projects, but just about any project I've ever been part of. And it presages many of the agile and small team development processes popularly successful today.

I can't recommend it highly enough.
