Well, I know this borders on cheating, but I hope you will forgive me. It is 6 p.m. Eastern Time (3 p.m. here, in California) on 12/31/2014. I have read 99 books in 2014 and I pledged to read 100. I hate breaking pledges, so I will briefly review the textbook I have been teaching from all year. I had to read over 50 pages of the textbook today while grading the final exam, so I hope this justifies the inclusion of this review here.

I had taught Software Engineering, since mid-1990s, from various

Has good research material in it. Using it for my 260 assignment.
A seminal volume in the software engineering world. If you are serious about improving your credentials as a true software engineer, you simply must read this text.

I think this book is more useful for managers than programmers and Code Complete, the other textbook for my software engineering class, is much better for developers (as such, me right now). However, if you're interested in learning about different software engineering methods and styles of work / management / planning / cycles then this is pretty good. It goes into more detail than Code Complete on different styles of collective coding.

This book is very good for any one in software field. Some times I lost in the examples. But overall, you can depend on it. I studied it in 2003, but I use it again in 2012 and 2013 and I think I will use it again.
