The Complete Software Project Manager
She’s organized the process into a textbook that almost reads like a novel. No, really! This book could be very dry, but it is anything but. Murray even brings a sense of humor to the subject in places….

Your book arrived a couple of weeks ago, and I’m immersed in it. Completely accords with my own experience and thinking after 30+ years in the business. I enjoy your terse, to-the-point writing style. I found the section on OTS applications (“Thinking You’re Editing When You’re Actually Creating”), p. 20 to be bang on the money.Duncan George
