  • Jim's book is being written as we speak. It looks good for an end of year release but don't quote me on it.

  • I agree!  It's referenced in the most wonderful book by Sam Guckenheimer, and that would have been an immediate sale for me, but the book just wasn't there!!!

  • We're hoping an early version of book will be made available electronically within the next couple of months and it should be available from bookstores before the end of the year.

    Jim and I very much appreciate your interest as we've dedicated a huge amount of time writing this book. The chapters are only ten pages or so long, but there's over thirty of them organized into ten sections. We've aimed the book at a small failing team that hope to improve the way they develop software by taking the following steps:

    1. Sharp Tools and Values

    2. Introduce Agile Development

    3. Use Version Control

    4. Build and Integrate Often

    5. Test-Driven Development

    6. Learn from Models and Patterns

    7. Implement Customer Testing (FIT)

    8. Estimate and Plan

    9. Practice for Deployment

    10. Reveal Value

    We trust you'll find the book worth the wait, but hope you will understand our need now to focus on finishing it.

    Regards

    Will Stott and James Newkirk
