Title: Software Project Survival Guide

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Very good for "Projects", but not for "projects"

This is an excellent guide to doing large software projects (10 man months minimum) well. Not only does it tell one what the right steps are, but also what difficulties one may encounter and good ways to get around them.
Unfortunately, most situations I've seen lately are for many micro-projects (a.k.a. feature enhancements) which, I think, require a somewhat different methodology.

What?s New in Data Warehousing

This book is THE standard when it comes to data warehousing. I first read this book six years ago and it has changed my career. It provides a clear and concise description of a data warehouse as well as the necessity of creating one.
A well-read copy of this book should be on the shelf of every one involved in the construction of a data warehouse or business intelligence system. It is a classic that needs to be read.
