re: Interesting. Why should Peopleware be in the list? What does it offer that isn't covered by one of the other books?

It's an often cited book about team-work and the importance of having stable teams, and how to achieve that.
I'm sure some material has been covered in other books but this one is as on-the-point as it gets. English non-fiction books tend to be very repetitive, which this one isn't at all.

I've read it. I thought it was okay but I've never recommended it to anyone. I'd recommend Rapid Development over this book every time but there's plenty of room for people to love Peopleware too.

Thanks for recommending it.
