I found the great thing in the world is not so much where stand, as in which direction we are moving, to reach the port of heaven we must sail sometimes with wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and no drift, and not lie at anchor.

I found the initial chapters hard going, but it did get more interesting in later chapters. It's possible that it's an issue of later editions, but a lack of organisation / structure seemed to lead to lots of duplication or cross-over between sections.

One of the best books I've ever read regarding how to effectively manage the product development lifecycle. Regardless of what development methodology you employ, you are bound to find some practical tips on better managing your development cycle and the folks who execute it.

Probably good when it was published, but superseded by newer work on rapid prototyping, Lean Startup, Jobs to be Done (Christensen's Competing Against Luck), and design sprint methodology.
